As explorers, be that novice or seasoned, we see beauty in everything, and yet there are so many hidden gems we fail to see even though they’re right before our very eyes. There are a whole host of sports related regions that are not only home to some of the most breathtaking views you’ll ever find, but also play host to some of the most unique stadiums around.

Football is seen as ‘the beautiful game’, and for that very reason it draws people in droves to visit Betway and the like to immerse themselves, but there is so much more beauty to it than spectating, using the Canadian Scotiabank Saddledome as a case in point. Nestled in the 1988 Winter Olympics host city of Calgary, the landscape surrounding the stadium is more than enough to sell us on a trip over there. Not only is it a thriving hub of contemporary living, but it also boasts rich, luscious greenery ideal for hiking and fishing, making it a hugely diverse destination.

As for the football venue itself, it has been a beacon of premier sports in the region for over three decades, and is known best for its smooth curved shape that pays homage to the rodeo heritage of Calgary. Equally unique and spectacular in its own way is The Float in Singapore, an already beloved holidaymakers stop due to the sharp contrasts of its ‘City in a Garden’ label . Despite being based on water, The Float can withstand over a 1,000 tonnes, and as such makes for a truly unique experience for those observing matches there.

These are but two of some remarkable places of footballing beauty that will ignite the travelling bug within you, thus proving that football is indeed a multifaceted game that is as attractive as it is compelling. And further highlighting how dramatically travelling can alter and improve our lives.
