Private Jet Charter Adventures: Top 5 Casino Cities Outside of the US
The glitz, thrills and high-stakes action are what make a trip to the casino tables an irresistible draw for those who like to play the odds. And there are a handful of cities around the world that are popular amongst private jet charter adventurers because they offer:
- Lavish casino environments
- High-end nightlife
- Luxury hotels and resorts
While some of the cities on this list are well known to most, others might surprise you.
1. London, England
While London might be more renowned for Hyde Park, Big Ben and other tourist attractions, it actually has quite a solid reputation on the gambling scene. The city features more than 25 casinos, some of which are open to the public. Others require a private membership and tend to cater to high rollers. Some of the top casinos include:

The Republic of Singapore is a relatively new player on the international gambling circuit (it was only legalized in the sovereign city-state in 2005). And despite having just two casinos—the Marina Bay Sands and Resorts World Sentosa—the city’s strong background as a tourist destination and world financial hub has helped earn it considerable early success.
Its proximity to China also makes it appealing to affluent Asian businessmen who think nothing of hiring a private jet charter to Singapore for a quick getaway.
