Las Vegas is the gambling capital of the world, of that there’s little doubt. The city seems to go to sleep as soon as the sun comes up, and then awakens each evening with its multitude of casinos and over-elaborate shows. But there’s more to do than just lose a year’s salary on the turn of a wheel; modern Los Vegas does enough to attract those who’ve little interest in the gaming tables and slot machines.

The casinos never shut, so if you’ve really in Las Vegas just to go flutter-mad, then there’s nothing stopping you. “Sin City” really does stay wide awake until dawn, whether you want to risk all on the spin of a roulette wheel, or sip cocktails in an exclusive lounge, or see a mega-star performance, then there’s no stopping you. You can then roll out of bed the next day at noon, nip down to catch a few extra winks by the pool, then dress for dinner and do it all over again.
