28 Aug Top Casino Destinations In The World
There are plenty of casinos in the world – we all know that. But more often than not, we like to stick to what we know – the familiar. There’s nothing wrong with faithfully visiting your favourite casino hotspot, but for those seeking to step out of their comfort zones and find that thrill, there are incredible destinations to experience casinos in a whole different light.
We’ve undertaken the task of providing you with what you need to know about the best (and some undiscovered) casino cities around the world.
San Jose, Costa Rica
Perhaps not the obvious choice when it comes to casino cities of the world, however, with a little digging, we can definitely confirm that San Jose in Costa Rica is a place worth experiencing. This tropical paradise is a perfect getaway for the avid gambler or the tourist looking for some fun. San Jose has over 30 casinos in the city, each one with it’s own unique theme and taste of culture.
On the other side of the coin, there’s a healthy exchange rate for tourists from Europe, Canada or the USA, meaning you get more bang for your buck. A city filled with lights and magic – San Jose Costa Rica is a casino destination worth your while.
The iconic city of love is romantic, historic and a perfect honeymoon destination. But that’s not all it is. Unexpectedly to some, Paris can boast some of the most spectacular casinos in the world. A city not founded or built for the casino industry but one who has moulded casinos to fit into its culture. With architecture to die more and fantastic service, playing at casinos in Paris is a posh affair and will leave you feeling like a million pounds.
Quite honestly, who can compete with an afternoon sipping champagne overlooking the Eiffel Tower and then ease into a grand evening at the poker tables.
One of the very few cities on Earth which is also an entire country, in fact, I can’t actually think of another one. This ultra-mod city is in its infancy stage when it comes to the casino industry and only legalised relatively recently. Singapore and two of the most renowned locations for tourists which offer so much more than just a casino.
Between Marina Bay Sands and Resorts World casinos they can offer guests a choice of 2500 rooms, an entire Universal theme park along with your standard nightclub, swimming pool and leisure facilities. There’s no escaping modern architecture and luxury in this country.
As one of the most technologically advanced cities in the world, Singapore makes a fun and thrilling holiday destination for all tourists. But particularly for those seeking a little fun at the tables, it makes for a casino experience unlike any other in the world.
Monte Carlo, Monaco
The name is Bond, James Bond. Yes, cheesy we know, but who can resist that line when you’re smoking a cigar, playing blackjack in your tuxedo while drinking a martini (shaken, not stirred). Mostly known as one of the wealthiest cities in the world, Monte Carlo boasts spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea which can be enjoyed from the many restaurants, hotels and casinos.
Be prepared to play with the big dogs if you want to look like you fit in to a place where you need to wear a ballgown to breakfast. The casinos themselves are the reason Monaco became monstrously wealthy in the 19th century, with people from all over Europe travelling to the iconic destination.
