Visiting the Grand Canyon is in every traveller's wish list or bucket list. This earth wonder needs no introduction as its impressive panoramic postcard views says it all.
Tip: The scale of this spectacular desert scenery is a lot to take in so why not book in helicopter tour to explore the area. It's an experience of a lifetime! There are tours which pick you up from your hotel in Las Vegas and back.
With the aerial views, you will not only see and land at the Grand Canyon but you'll be flying over The Hoover Dam too.
And than includes the mountain ranges.
When choosing your tour, include the option of a helicopter ride down to the Colorado River. This helicopter ride also gives you a view from a different angle on the beautiful rock formations of the Grand Canyon.
While exploring the area, go for a walk at the glass-floored Grand Canyon Skywalk.
Public access to this engineering marvel comes with a paid-ticket but the cost versus the thrilling view and experience is nowhere near comparable.
Outside this Skywalk are displays of American Indian Tepees and is worth checking out too.
Get inside these structures and you can just have a feel on how the Native Americans survived the searing heat of the sun.
Finally, make some time to savour the magnificent views at Eagles Point. Just don't get too close to the edge.
This luxury hotel-resort sits in the heart of Las Vegas and pays homage to the Roman culture and history.
From lavish pools, restaurants and of course its own casino, this place stands out as one of the top hotel destinations in the Strip.
Tip: Check out for live performances while you're staying in the hotel and be entertained as you may bump in to one fo the A-list performers.
There's a shopping area too called the The Forum Shops.
The impressive interior design of the hotel extends all the way here so it's a must see even if you're not on a spending spree.
Stratosphere towers over Las Vegas at approximately 350m high.
More than just another hotel destination, it offers activities for thrill seekers most notably its Skyjump - which currently holds the Guinness World Record as the highest commercial decelerator descent facility.
Tip: If you're an adrenaline junkie and you happen to be in Vegas, this is a must do.
Alternatively, take the easy option and enjoy a full on 360-degree view of Las Vegas from the tower's observation deck. There's a bar serving food and drinks.
Stratosphere Tower is located off a few blocks from the Strip. It may take about 30mins to an hour of walk depending on the number of stops you make. A cab is always an option.
Talk about Las Vegas and casinos come to mind. It's one that defines this city. Casinos are literally everywhere so you won't run out of options.
Tip: Don't forget to bring your ID's specially if you don't resemble your exact age -- for sure, you'll be asked for one. We're recommending this activity for the experience, so set your gambling limits, have fun and learn to walk away when losing starts to creep in.
The world-renowned Las Vegas Strip is what defined the city. Hotels, casinos, restaurants, street performers -- this boulevard has it all.
Tip: Get in there for an early morning walk before the big crowd arrives.
Places like the Mirage Hotel,
the Palazzo Hotel and its shops
the Venetian Hotel and its canals
and Treasure Island among others are sure to catch your attention.
And did we just say shopping!
Tip: Getting in to this bus ride is a quick and easy way to explore the city sights and landmarks.
It stops at strategic locations including the famous Las Vegas sign.
It takes you to the downtown area
where you see replicas of the Eiffel Tower,
Statue of Liberty to name a few.
