Nowhere does big like America, and in America, nowhere does big like Vegas. You walk towards some buildings just a stone’s throw away, but fifteen minutes they’re no closer. Because they’re not close – they’re just massive.

So if you’re planning to go big in Vegas, where do you stay? The Mandalay Bay, obviously. Spacious rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows offer spectacular views of the strip and Nevada’s strange lunar landscape.

If, while cruising the vast, airy casino, like some snazzily-dressed apex predator, you find yourself getting hungry, your dining options are overwhelming. From the best steak in Vegas at Charlie Palmer steak house to All-American comfort food at Citizens, not forgetting the most epic breakfast buffet on the strip, its almost as if they don’t want you to leave…

Oh, and there’s a beach – with real sand, 27,000 tones of the stuff. You can swim in the lazy river, do a bit of shirtless gambling at the beachside casino, or head to the Moorea Beach Club for a ‘European style bathing experience.’

Go big or go home.
