Las Vegas: what to see and where to eat, play, party and relax

Arguably the world’s greatest leisure and entertainment destination, Las Vegas is a city that is forever reinventing itself. With a host of major new attractions, it pays to get out of your resort and explore Vegas more fully.

·         The 4-mile Last Vegas Strip from a height to get a sense of the enormity of pleasure available in Sin City. At 550 ft tall, the High Roller at the Linq is the world's largest observation wheel.
·         Alternatively use the SlotZilla zip line: take off from an 11-storey slot machine-themed platform, travelling 110 ft above the heads of fellow visitors before landing on a canopy some 1,700 ft later. Perfect for thrill-seekers.
·         A Vegas show. Among the most popular are: the Michael Jackson One by Cirque du Soleil at
Mandalay Bay, and Le Rêve (The Dream) at The Wynn,
      voted best show in Vegas, a spectacular and mesmerising aqua theatre show.
·         Famous Las Vegas signs from the twentieth century re-presented as public art at the Neon Museum.

·         Feast on pan-Asian flavours for brunch through to dinner at the Poppy Den, a new trendy diner in Tivoli Village.
·         Tuck into Vegas’ finest seafood at Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak and Stone Crab.
·         The Barrymore if you are after high-end classic American cuisine: a 14-ounce serving of dry-aged New York strip or 
      the 18-ounce bone-in rib-eye steak.

   ·         Poker with the rest of the world: the World Poker Series runs from 27 May to 14 July 2014.
   ·         Pass the Line at a Craps table – perfect for those new to gambling. Place your chips for a 50:50 chance of winning. You don’t have to understand all the rules, just wait for the crowd to cheer or go silent to know if you’ve won.

   ·         Hardcore clubbers should head to the Marquee (The Cosmopolitan), the XS (Wynn) or Light (Mandalay Bay).
   ·         On the 55th floor at Palms at the Ghostbar. It’s pricey but this sophisticated night out comes with incredible 360-degree views of Vegas.

    ·         Drive and hike through Red Rock Canyon. This peaceful natural park with its stunning scenery is the perfect anecdote to the hustle and bustle of Vegas.
    ·         Release your Vegas sins with a deep pamper at The Spa at the Mandarin Oriental. Inspired by the exotic luxury of 1930s Shanghai, enjoy the serene pleasures on offer across its two floors.
