Love it or loathe it, this is one of the world's most incredible cities. The glittering lights and shimmering pools of Las Vegas appear like a mirage out of the Nevada Desert and the city boasts many of the world's largest and most elaborate hotels.
With jaw-dropping sights around every corner it's not just the casinos that draw millions of visitors to the city every year. Theatrically-themed hotels, choreographed fountains, world-class shows and spectacular free entertainment make it an extraordinary place to visit even if you never set foot in a casino.
Most of the hotels, casinos, bars and nightclubs are located on "the strip" which is vividly illuminated with a sea of neon at night.
Don't miss the famous dancing fountains at the Bellagio Hotel and the Liberace Museum, or take a short side trip to the Grand Canyon, Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam, all easily reached from the city.
