We all have our vices that have to be indulged from time to time. That is why the Lonely Planet made a list of places where you can freely commit your favorite “sweet sins”.
Las Vegas, USA: LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL
Sin City, the stage of numerous legendary film stories and tv series, Las Vegas has become a synonym for licentiousness and entertainment. There are more casinos than in the whole world, the largest strip club, as well as 15 of the 20 largest hotels in the world. In a city that promotes itself with the sentence “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” anything can happen!
Cairo, Egypt: SMOKE LIKE AN EGYPTIAN
There is something compelling in the so-called shorn that Egyptians smoke. Perhaps because of the sound of bubbles produced by this smoking device, scent of the smoke or ornamental architecture, the culture of this city will fascinate you completely.
Ko Pha-Ngan, Thailan: LET LOOSE AT A BEACH PARTY
Ko Pha-Ngan is especially interesting during the infamous full moon party that is claimed to be the biggest beach party in the world. With loud music, dancing on the sand, cheap thai whiskey and other amusing substances, you can achieve pure hedonism. Best of all is that you can sleep at the same place until the morning, and then look for the cure for a hangover and refreshment in the crystal clear waters of the ocean.
Jaipur, India: SLEEP LIKE ROYALTY
The first palace was built in 1727, and today it is one of the largest hotels in the world. Raj Palace is one of the finest examples of Mughal architecture, with marble bathrooms, gilded ceilings, furniture made of ivory and crystal chandeliers. The guests feel like kings in this palace. Shahi Mahal presidential suite costs $ 53,000 per night. Private swimming pool, spa and personal butler are also included in this price.
Arizona, USA: CLOG YOUR ARTERIES
With specialties such as the Quadruple Bypass Burger (8,000 calories), Flatiner fries and butter shakes it is not surprising that their motto goes “Taste worth dying.” Waitresses dressed as nurses are taking orders on recipes, and they will take you to zour car in a wheelchair if you manage to eat a whole meal. In addition to this, you can also purchase a beer and cigarettes.
Florence, Italy: BURN SOME RUBBER
The capital of art with its palaces, churches and museums is a repository of Renaissance art. But if you get bored of too much culture, you can always rent a Ferrari. Visit Tuscany, famous Chianti hills, vineyards and villages and burn some rubber.
Bangkok, Thailand: TASTE DESSERT HEAVEN
Order a slice of chocolate cake Madagascar, with chocolate mousse and strawberries and cream brule served with golden leaves, and also add a glass of Moyet Tres Vieille rare Grande No. 7 and you will have the honor of eating the most expensive dessert in the world. It is designed in the Mezzaluna restaurant in Bangkok, and the price is nothing – just 640 dollars.
Mongolia: DRINK LIKE A NOMAD
Visit the tent, called ger in Mongolian steppes, and most likely you will find airag with a bottle, a drink made from fermented horse milk. This is the type drunkenness you certainly have never experienced. And if it goes with vodka, it would be better to have someone who will look after you. Once opened, the bottle can no longer be closed, and you will be forced to drink up until the bottle is empty.
Amsterdam, Netherlands: SAMPLE A SPLIFF IN THE RED LIGHT DISTRICT
Famous as the world’s capital of legalised vice, Amsterdam’s De Wallen district is dotted with comfy ‘coffeeshops’ where (unless the proposed tourist ban goes ahead) you can order up grams of marijuana loose or pre-rolled into joints.
