Do(s)

  • Plan your budget and stick to it, as a vacation in Las Vegas isn’t cheap.
  • Set an individual gambling budget beforehand to control the expense. 
  • Stay within close proximity to the Strip because much of the action happens here.
  • Observe casino etiquette and ensure you understand the rules of the game you are playing.
  • Carry enough cash for taxis because most don’t accept cards, and for housekeeping and tipping.
  • Hail cabs on the Strip only at designated points.
  • Get a Las Vegas Pass for exciting offers and discounts.
  • Take time to find the right stay for you instead of picking a random one.
  • Eat in an all-you-can-eat buffet brunch.
  • Get outside of Vegas to explore new places nearby.
  • Try to take the affordable Deuce bus for moving around instead of renting a comparatively expensive taxi.    



Don’t(s)     

  • Don’t miss out on the shows that are there for all ages.
  • Try not to use the ATMs at casinos for your safety.
  • Avoid paying a stiff convenience fee to save your money. 
  • Don’t jaywalk because it comes with hefty fines.  
  • Don’t violate the laws else you would find yourself in trouble as the cops are really strict.
  • Don’t wear uncomfortable shoes as every attraction in Las Vegas requires you to walk a bit.
  • Don’t buy bottled water from the street vendors as it’s illegal.
  • Avoid drinking while gambling so you can play uninterruptedly.
  • Don’t leave your wallet in a shopping cart or you will lose it in seconds.
  • Don’t bring underage kids in the casinos unless a kids’ show is happening.   

Night Life

Vegas’s partying lineage is quite notorious and can bring out the wild side of tourists at the forefront. ‘What happens here, stays here’, is the tagline specially scripted for the benefit of the visitors so that they can keep their stories of drunken debauchery to themselves. But, alcohol-fueled mischiefs rarely stay hidden for long and that is what the Sin City is all about. The array of night-clubs and royal casinos are bound to tempt your inner devil to reveal itself from behind the moral facade. Then again, the glitz and glam of Vegas will rarely give you an opportunity to remain back in your hotel while the whole city goes clubbing and sinning through the night. Some of the world’s best nightclubs can be found right here in the streets of Vegas. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is one giant nightclub and Marquee is the key attraction here. It is a lot more than a mere place to relax your senses and douse yourself with enough booze to satiate the thirst of your sailor-self. And if you feel raunchy, then do stop by either Sapphire, Crazy Horse 3 or Kings of Hustler - popular strip clubs of Vegas. You can also script your own ‘rags to riches’ story in The Cosmopolitan Casino, Paris Las Vegas or Casino Royale - some of the popular gambling destinations of the city. The night-life of Las Vegas has a lot to offer. But, they are often too much to digest at a go. So, if you wish to sin, then visit the Sin capital of the world - Las Vegas.
