“Travel is a real passion of mine,” said Van Dijk. “We visit so many cities through football, but don’t get to fully immerse ourselves in them, so any time off I get, I am always looking to head out on an adventure with my friends and family. That’s why I am excited to be partnering with Expedia, as we both believe that we are all made to travel.”, reports the Mirror.

Van Dijk has now revealed his top 10 things to do in the city – including a visit to the new luxury hotel, independent restaurants, and an immersive culture and gaming hub.
