Explore the excitement of everything in Las Vegas and beyond on a holiday to this unforgettable fluorescent city in Nevada.

But don’t let this distract you from the natural beauty of the Mojave Desert that lies on its doorstep.
Ride the New York New York’s Big Apple Coaster, sweep your eyes across the glistening Neon Museum, or zip-line through the heights of Las Vegas. Glide in a gondola alongside the Venetian, then spend your dollar bills at the Grand Canal Shoppes. Sip cocktails and watch the Bellagio Fountains’ light show, dance like nobody’s watching at the Hakkansan nightclub and head out for a brunch the next day.
See the other side and venture out of this electric city to experience the flickering desert heat. Reach the hypnotic, rouge Grand Canyon and treat yourself for a view of nature’s maze from above as you soar through the sky by helicopter. For more jaw-dropping views, peer across the colossal Hoover Dam on the border of Nevada and Arizona.
You’ve most probably heard of the Strip’s famous Caesar’s Palace Hotel and, likely, MR CHOW, the upscale Chinese restaurant located within it. But did you know that the eatery has a silver Champagne trolley?
