Las Vegas, US
Why not? This is the mentality you need for Vegas. From Great Gatsby-style pool parties to all kinds of eye-popping shows, there’s never a dull moment in sin city. Take advantage of the stellar restaurant scene and world-famous nightclubs (such as 1OAK and XS) and try not to be too dazzled by the bright lights of the casinos. Tick The Venetian off your bucket list, while an outing to Chippendales is mandatory.
When to go
While Vegas is typically sunny all year round, the most comfortable times to visit are from March to May and September to November. Hotel rates are considerably cheaper during the week.

O by Cirque du Soleil at the Bellagio. From just $99 a ticket witness a spectacle which takes place over water, where divers and synchronised swimmers frolic alongside gravity-defying acrobats.
An essential you need to bring with you?
That sequin dress which you’ve never worn because you can’t quite work out if it’s trashy or downright fabulous – this is Vegas, anything goes.
