In search of hedonism
When it comes to fun, plenty of cities around the world have had their moment in the sun. Lagos, Havana, even Beirut have all been at one point the place to go for a party. Thanks to some astute marketing and the power of Hollywood, Las Vegas is back at the top. It’s no longer pitched as the place to feed your pension into a slot machine one quarter at a time, but as the ideal destination for a bachelor party or lost weekend. Try Caesar’s Palace to recreate key scenes from both Rain Man and The Hangover, or take the Hugh Hefner Sky Villa at The Las Vegas Palms ($40,000 a night) to look out over the desert night from the comfort of your own hooker.
