Situated at the heart of the strip, the Forum Shops is a huge indoor mall packed with luxury retailers from Chanel and Chloé to Versace and Valentino. With spiral escalators, a 50,000-gallon aquarium and a fire and water show featuring talking statues, there’s plenty more to do than just shop. Dubbed the “Shopping Wonder of the World”, the mall’s marble columns sit under a ceiling painted with clouds that brighten and dim to simulate day time and dusk.

Fremont Street Experience
Fremont Street may be a little off the strip, but the old downtown Las Vegas that was founded in 1905 is the original gambling district. Head to The Pioneer Club to take a pic of “Vegas Vic”, one of the most iconic neon signs in the city, and stop by the gift shop to buy the necessary souvenirs. Pop into Spinettis Gaming Supplies or Gamblers General Store to stock up customized poker chips and other gambling trinkets. And, while you’re in Fremont, don’t miss a whirl on the SlotZilla, an 11-storey high and five block-long zipline over the entire shopping street.
World's Largest Gift Shop 2440 South Las Vegas Boulevard
Only in Vegas does high-end couture brush shoulders with the tackiest of souvenir shops. If you look very carefully in the US customs blueprint, it’s pretty much illegal to leave without taking a decent amount of rhinestone-encrusted fluffy pink merchandise with you. For the best of the bunch, go in search of the world’s biggest gift shop in Downtown.

Gold & Silver Pawn Shop
If you’re a reality-show fanatic, then you’ll want to head down to Rick and Corey’s pawn shop, of History Channel Pawn Stars fame. The small, narrow store often has a line outside but it’s well worth the wait. Jewellery, antique guns and memorabilia are all for sale, and, if you’re wanting to recoup your gambling losses, the pawn shop is always open.
