The glowing cityscape of Las Vegas is exhilarating, whichever way you want to see it. From helicopter rides across the skies, top-notch spots on lavish poolside cabanas, to the best seats at the hottest shows in town. Variety is king, from the Strip to the desert.
Explore the shimmering labyrinthine of Las Vegas. Whether you’re looking for a VIP experience with a difference, an out of this world pool party, jaw-dropping entertainment or celebrity chef dining experiences – you’ll find it in Nevada’s florescent city. But don’t let this distract you from the natural beauty of the Mojave Desert and Red Rock Canyon, just beyond the urban thrills. Book your holiday to Las Vegas with us, to begin your colour-filled adventure.
Start with a ride on the New York New York Big Apple Coaster, glide in a gondola alongside The Venetian, catch a Cirque du Soleil show at the MGM Grand or sweep your eyes across the Las Vegas night-time skyline on a helicopter ride. 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 brunch, whatever time of day it is.
See the other side of this electric city and venture out 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. What are you waiting for? Book your direct flights to Las Vegas now.
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?
