The World’s Most Extravagant Casino Destinations
Inspiration for travel can take many forms. It could come from a new and exotic country we’ve heard about that we’re curious to check out, somewhere we’re keen to visit for a second time in order to explore further, or a particular attraction or event that has perked our interest.
Sporting events, festivals and even national celebrations can all inspire international travel, but it’s one of the year-round attractions that we’ll be focusing on in this article. Whether you’re an experienced gambler or just learning the games for the first time, there are many options to consider if you’re interested in travelling to enjoy a luxurious casino experience.
But first things first…
Before you head to the casino, it’s important to acclimatise to the games you’ll be playing. Casino trips can be just as enjoyable for beginners, but it’s no fun if you don’t know what you’re doing – and you could even find yourself out of pocket.
We recommend spending some time learning about the games before you travel. This could include a trip to your local casino or playing online and, if you are a new player, you’ll want to make sure you take advantage of introductory offers. Many casinos provide bonuses to new players, so it’s important to shop around before you open an account online or make a trip. Websites like CasinoWings.com can help players see what’s available to new players at a glance, as they break down both the various offers on each website and the types of games and their variants.
Ready to go? Here are three of the best places to visit…
North America – Las Vegas
Where else to start but what is reknown as the global capital of gambling? Las Vegas has been the premier destination since the 1970s, when the first casinos on the famous Strip popped up, as we read on Oldest.com. In the five decades that have followed, the Nevada city has immortalised itself as part of gambling folklore and pop culture in general.
A trip to Vegas should truly be on any traveller’s bucket list, whether you’re hitting the card tables or not. Many of the casinos boast spectacular hotels and leisure resorts, so a glamorous experience awaits high-rollers and low-rollers alike.
Europe – Monte Carlo
The largest city in Monaco, Monte Carlo is a five square kilometre expanse that’s home to a native of a population of just 400 people. But don’t let the numbers fool you; it’s a true paradise for gamblers and tourists chasing a glitzy getaway.
It’s home to numerous casinos, hotels and historical buildings as well as a celebrated F1 race. One of the jewels of Monte Carlo’s crown is its Grand Théâtre opera and ballet house, which is the headquarters of the Ballets de Monte Carlo.
If the bright neon and hedonism of Vegas is a little much for you then a trip to Monte Carlo might be the perfect alternative. There’s more here for the non-gambler too, so if you’re travelling as part of a group with mixed interests, this is a great option blessed with excellent sunshine and peaceful Mediterranean waters.
Asia – Macau
You’ll find Macau almost next door to Hong Kong on the southeastern coast of the Chinese mainland. And it may surprise you to learn that the city-state actually generates more gambling revenue than Vegas, according to Fool.com.
Macau is a former territory of Portugal, so its culture and language are unique, though its identity is best characterised by its gambling obsession. The Casino Lisboa has been Macau’s best-known venue for several years, though its status has been challenged by the sprawling Sands Casino, which opened in 2004.
Away from gambling, large parts of the Macau Peninsula are designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site, and breath-taking to behold, while the Taipa and Coloane fishermen villages offer a quieter retreat from the fast-paced world of casino gambling.
These are just three of the potential destinations to visit for a gambling getaway and there are many more out there to discover. And whether you’re travelling a few hundred miles or many thousands, there’s lots to explore.
Remember, never travel without travel insurance! And never overpay for travel insurance!
