If you wanted to build a very impressive and beautiful building to impress potential customers, it would help to have an almost unlimited budget. Besides the Sultan of Brunei, who actually does have an unlimited budget, some of the world’s most beautiful buildings are the lavish casino compounds you’ll find in Las Vegas. Again and again, new casinos built in Las Vegas are stunningly beautiful, with fountains, gardens and hundreds of yards of marble.
Here is a glimpse of what we would consider the world’s most beautiful casinos.
The front of the Bellagio Casino is a wall of water, computer controlled fountains that put on a show every 15 minutes, all night long. The three-minute fountain shows are set to music, and the water cascades up 150 feet. You pull up in your Bentley, and wow! It’s just like at your personal mansion. Not only are the fountains choreographed, they’re colored with lights to add to the amazing spectacle.
The Casino at Caesar’s Palace is considered by some to be the world’s most beautiful. And one customer cited that both Celine Dion and Elton John play there, which are two people who can afford just about anything they want, and can choose their music venues accordingly. In front of Caesars you’ll find gorgeous fountains.
The theme, of course, is ancient Rome, they’ve recreated the palaces of the great emperors, so you’ll see lots of marble statues, vast curved columns and arches and dramatic use of water and light to make mere mortals quake. Even the casino staff does its part, dressed up like gladiators and Roman costumes.
For purely amazing, you’ve got to see the Venetian’s replica of St Mark’s Square, complete with pigeons and a bright blue sky. Where else can you take a gondola ride inside, and where else enjoy $1.5 billion of man-made beauty?
