    These are the world's best Sin Cities. Picture: Thinkstock
    SIN Cities in which you can pursue vice and debauchery have existed throughout history, from Rome's glory days when you could follow up your bet on a gladiator with an orgy, to Shanghai where you could float for days in opium dens high on sex and drugs.
    In the 21st century, new sin cities around the world have taken up the cause and we've compiled them all in our list. The criteria for a location to make our sin cities list is pretty simple: It has to offer a strong presence of gambling, sex, drinking, drugs and/or partying.
    Here are the top 10 sin cities that made the cut.
    No.10 Berlin, Germany
    Bring out das gimp! Latex pants, tops, chains, whips and S&M are all the rage in Berlin, one of the world's most fetish-friendly sin cities. Need to be punished? Turn yourself in to any of the city's sex dungeons for rehabilitation. Want to dance at a club you can also have sex at? The KitKat Club will oblige. Between the First and Second World Wars, Berlin established the world's first institute for sexual science, which, among other things, had a porn collection that puts every teenager's hidden stash to shame. This openness inspired cabaret and burlesque shows. Plus, at a popular nightclub of the time, patrons could even send cocaine vials by pneumatic tube to other patrons.
    In modern-day Berlin, prostitution is legal everywhere. So, if handcuffs and zipper masks don't do it for you, working women will be happy to oblige.

    No.9 Macau, China
    Have you been to the Venetian, Wynn and MGM hotel casinos in Las Vegas? Now try the ones in China. Located in South China, Macau's legalised gambling laws have made big money for the country and gotten it ranked as one of our top 10 sin cities. It has already surpassed Las Vegas twice for total gambling revenue and boasts the world's largest casino, the Venetian Macau. In all, it packs 33 casinos into 11 square miles with plans for plenty more to come. Like Las Vegas, Macau also advertises tons of women for extracurricular entertainment. While the prostitution laws contradict themselves in the books (it is legal, but procuring it is not), it’s practiced more and more out in the open.
    Down on your luck? You might get lucky here.
    No.8 Manama, Bahrain
    Welcome to the party oasis of the Middle East. Connected by a causeway to nearby Saudi Arabia, Manama is a popular spot for Saudis to kick back from their country's restrictive laws. Here they can get hammered, go clubbing, mingle with the opposite sex, and if they're really daring, they can pick up prostitutes - a practice that's illegal but widely available. While Manama is still largely a Muslim city, a third of its residents are foreigners, so it has led to a much more liberal culture that gave women the vote in 2001, and let them drive cars. For many Saudi males this proximity to an open culture is irresistible and many jam the causeway and fill flights to the city every weekend.
    Do you want to see what happens when Saudis cut loose and leave the rules behind? You may need to get in line.
    No.7 New Orleans, Louisiana
    Beads, boobs, beer and bongs make this city the North American choice for Mardi Gras. Its sinful history dates back to the 19th century when it was a mixing ground of music, prostitution, French food, and hedonism. Nowadays, you'll find a modern mix of this in the city's French Quarter, with strip joints, porn shops and bars to satisfy your appetite and make the locale one of the most tantalising sin cities around.
    Prostitution is illegal, but it has a long history here. American Senator David Vitter can attest to this. He got pinched for his regular visits with a Canal Street hooker, but in a city that advertises "Live Sex Shows" and "Wash the Girl of Your Choice", sinning is as integral as breathing.

    Interesting. I've been to the majority of these places. And I can't believe Burgos Street in Makati City, The Philippines is not on the list. Do you have the link for the original article?

    Reminds me of my overnighter on a drive to Boulder, CO. I couldn't find a pub except for these members only private joints. Finally asked somebody what the deal was, they let me join, and I got my beer.

    I gathered from the reading that the OP was on his way to Boulder, but was still in SLC.

    5/10 but there must be lots of other cities more worthy of being on this list.
