About Las Vegas

Including tips for the best time to visit Las Vegas

Awash with bright lights and neon signs, Las Vegas is a city of fun, freedom and fabulousness – as its iconic welcome sign promises.

Most of the Sin City’s action is concentrated in the Las Vegas Strip – a stretch of road lined with upscale casinos, Michelin-starred restaurants and legendary hotels. You can try your luck at the fabled casinos or check out a show from Vegas’ enviable lineup – from enchanting Cirque du Soleil acts to top musicians performing at its pulsing clubs.

Vegas resorts are designed as entire worlds of their own, complete with casinos, restaurants, spas, shopping centres and activities unique to their theme. Take a gondola ride on the canals of the Venetian, live like Roman royalty at Caesars Palace or experience mythical Egyptian grandeur at the Luxor Hotel. While it’s tempting to spend the entire holiday exploring your resort, make some time for Bellagio’s dancing fountains and botanical gardens, and head to the Neon Museum for an artsy display of retro signage lit up anew. A spin on the 550-feet tall High Roller will give you a glimpse of the world’s wonders, with replicas of the Eiffel Tower, the Giza Pyramid and New York’s skyline dotting the glittering city below.

A fluorescent oasis amidst the Mojave Desert, Vegas is surrounded by mountains and dramatic landscapes offering exhilarating activities and stunning views. Hike up Mount Charleston, zipline over the Bootleg Canyon or simply drive through Red Rock Canyon for a respite from the city’s heady energy.

Was very nice , although one week is too long just in Vegas , I loved the hot weather but for some people is too hot so I would recommend not June . Plenty to see and very safe , wouldn’t recommend to take children, is an adults holiday. By the way extremely expensive but is one of a life time experience.

We are not gamblers, but the place offers a lot of attractions, for families, couples or singles alike. This was our third visit after 20 years and the place has developed immensely.....also, we took a tour to Hoover Dam, with MAX TOURS, was very informative and professional. Dinner was at Outback, Dennys, and Imperial Buffet at China town. All pretty good! We missed The big buffett at The Palm --if you like seafood---make a reservation well in advance.

I understand it a gambling town and that it’s a tourist attraction but why in gods name does Las Vegas have to charge everyone so much money to eat. At some point it feels they’re taking advantage of people. Would I recommend Vegas no not any longer in the 1990s yes but not now

We experienced poor customer service at the front desk. Six ladies were at the front desk with only one station open while a whole line of guests waited. I was waiting without moving for 45 minutes and there were 2 ladies in front of me who waited even longer. I wanted to change our room to a better smelling room. We requested non-smoking and were placed in a funky smoky smelling room. Finally a rep from the kiosks came over and helped me within 5 minutes. Our new room had been assigned long ago but I received no phone call as promised. On the morning we checked out, the water was shut off. The toilet didn't flush and we washed and brushed our teeth with the last of our bottled water. Based on these situations, I will never stay at PH again. We have stayed there a few times in the past with no problems but this time was intolerable overall. As for Las Vegas, the heat is stifling (105 plus degrees every day) and the food/entertainment/amenities are vastly overpriced. Hopefully this is my last trip to Las Vegas.

The many shows, entertainment, and various sites and displays at hotel make it worth the trip. The one issue is the occasional smell of strong marijuana and questionable people with substance abuse and mental health issues.
