Lights of Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas!

Shining bright in the desert like a beacon to all night owls, the modern-day oasis of Las Vegas is maybe the craziest, most excessive place on earth. Built as a pleasure resort, you will be surprised at the new side to Sin City.

All night casinos and massive ultra-luxury resorts are only the beginning in Las Vegas. And whilst well known as an adult playground, recent attempts at making Vegas a classier, more elegant place are being welcomed with open arms. Fantastic, award-winning signature restaurants of celebrity chefs have taken over from the humdrum buffets. Pool parties and big name DJs have replaced the erstwhile crooners and cabarets. Vegas is a holiday destination on the rise. Huge glamourous resorts vie for your attention on the Strip, replacing the old mob-funded hotels of yesteryear. Las Vegas is a city reborn, and you are invited to the party.
