Las Vegas

Las Vegas


The bright lights and take-no-prisoners approach to partying has earned this town the moniker of entertainment capital of the world.

It’s been the setting for many an unravelling – the Hangover and Casino films, William Burroughs and Hunter S Thompson to name a few – but this former watering hole for Spanish Mexican explorers keeps drawing them back like moths to a flame.

Everything is done to excess from the celebrity studded restaurants to sprawling 24 hour factory shopping to the mega star mega shows. It’s fabulously, staggeringly, excessively over the top. And when you can’t take one more second, hit the road for the bright blue skies and purple sunset of the eerily beautiful Mojave Desert. 

Flights to Las Vegas

Don't miss

Need some inspiration on what to do? Here are some of the top things to do in and around Las Vegas.

  • Hit the factory outlets for some serious Vegas style shopping, some open 24 hours a day
  • Drive out and see the Grand Canyon National Park, one of the seven wonders of the world and only three hours from Vegas
  • Get married Hollywood style in a white chapel - most hotels have their own chapel to say the big 'I do'
  • Discover the virtuous side of Vegas in one of the city’s excellent spas such as the Canyon Ranch Spa at the Venetian and the Palazzo
  • Supersize your shopping experience at jaw dropping 636,000 square foot Forum Shops at Caesar’s Palace.

Where to go

Most visitors to Las Vegas spend their time on the Strip, and possibly even inside a casino on the strip, but don’t let that stop you from visiting some of the attractions of one of North America's fastest growing cities.


Just north of the Strip, you’ll find Downtown, where districts like Fremont East reflect Vegas’ hipster vibe with its cool galleries and boho speakeasies.

It’s there you’ll find icons of vintage Vegas such as the Golden Nugget Casino, the famous 40-foot neon cowboy sign, the Mob Museum and the Neon Boneyard. There’s also the Las Vegas Premium Outlets mall if you want to do some discount shopping or if you're an adventure-seeker why not fly the SlotZilla zoomline.

The unincorporated town of Paradise is where it’s at – the Bellagio, Venetian, Mirage, Caesars Palace, MGM Grand – and the connecting backbone; the 'Strip' or Las Vegas Boulevard. Think the glammed up girls of Casino, the frat boys of the Hangover and little old ladies on the slots. They’re all here and in neon. The strip is just over six kilometres in length and features wide sidewalks, however be aware that certain parts, like out the front of Bellagio, can get very congested.
