Las Vegas Strip

The spectacular Strip is synonymous with the city of Las Vegas, a world into itself where anything is possible. The success of a single casino in 1941 laid the seeds for what would eventually become the extraordinary and unparalleled Las Vegas Strip, a cultural phenomenon that attracted legendary musicians, top-notch hoteliers and a whole host of colourful characters, their stories are interwoven into the very fabric of the city. This stretch of South Las Vegas Boulevard is bejewelled with luxury hotels the likes of which are found nowhere else, entertainment venues that host some of the world's top acts and attractions that run the gamut from the dancing fountains of the Bellagio to the dazzling lights of the Fremont Street Experience. Here, it's possible to enjoy a gondola ride down Venetian canals, tour the Amazonian forests and admire the Eiffel Tower in a single day; a replica of some of the world's wonders packed into a single street. The Strip's 30 odd casinos are a whirlwind of flashing lights where time holds no sway and fortunes are won with the roll of a dice or the spin of a wheel, while world-renown restaurants, shopping centres, nightclubs and arenas vie for attention too. So grand is the spectacle, that the Strip is clearly visible from the sky, its glimmering facades, brilliant lights and distinctive architecture unmistakable as anything else.

Fountains at Bellagio

A beautiful visual water symphony choreographed to music provides an unforgettable welcome to the Bellagio Hotel Casino. The water jets span more than 1000 feet (304 meters) and can shoot up to 250 feet (76 meters) in the air while seeming to dance to choreographed lights and romantic classical music. It is a spectacular sight and one worth taking the time to view while strolling along the boulevard. As evening sets in, the lit-up fountain is a sight to behold. Be sure to bring a camera as this is one of Vegas' best attractions - and it's for free! The magic happens every 30 minutes until 8 PM, after which shows are every 15 minutes. Please note that shows may stray from this schedule due to the weather.
