4 Perfect Poker destinations for a wonderful break

May 26, 2022

There are so many cities in the world which are good for a weekend break or a little longer. Sit back and imagine your next holiday right now, and surely dozens of names will immediately rush into your mind, along with hundreds of images of beautiful scenery, top class restaurants, and luxurious hotels.

When you think of luxury, you think of glitzy, modern places. You think of pristine lawns and manicured gardens. You think of spas where you can spoil yourself and pools where you can soak hours away. And often, you think of classic casinos and special poker rooms. And while the best online casino offers you the chance to play all the games without going anywhere, those sites can also whet your appetite for a holiday to somewhere you can play for real while being waited on hand and foot. Somewhere like one of the following places:

Las Vegas

Well, of course. You can’t write about world class casinos without mentioning LV, Sin City, Las Vegas itself. Even if you’ve never been there, you feel like you know it because you’ve seen it so often on TV and in the movies. The Strip is one of the most famous roads in the world, and while Vegas isn’t the most refined city on the planet, it does do a nice line in luxury - from the hotels, to the restaurants, to the limos you can hire to pick you up at the airport. It’s somewhere you need to go, just to be able to say that you’ve been.


Now we’re dealing with something a little more chic. Technically a principality and a city state all of its own, Monaco feels very French, and you can travel between it and France without any issues at all. Great casinos here include la Salle Garnier and Belle Epoque, and when you’re done gambling for awhile, you can see the Prince’s Palace, official home of Albert II, Crown Prince of Monaco (and son of Grace Kelly). Also make a point of visiting le vieux Monaco, the historic town, filled with beautiful, diverse architecture.


Ever since playing host to the World Series of Poker Africa in 2010, Johannesburg has come to have a reputation as a city for the high rollers, and its casino culture is definitely one major selling point. It’s also geographically stunning and filled with things to see and do when you’re not at the tables or slots. Museums of South Africa’s modern history are an ideal visit for your brain, while your heart will be lifted by the various safari trips you can take here.

San Jose

There are innumerable cities all over the world where you could go for bright neon lights and sensory overload, but there is already Las Vegas, so our last destination is one where you can enjoy the laid-back atmosphere and play casino games in the setting that is most suitable for a holiday. Costa Rica’s capital San Jose doesn’t fit the usual profile of a casino city, with its relaxed pace and affordable lodging and dining options. But as night falls, the casinos fill up and you’ll find the gaming tables every bit as thrilling as those in the bigger cities. To add to that, there are beautiful natural tours on offer in every direction you could travel in from here, making it a perfect place for a longer break.
