I made this video 3 years ago, but only shared it to Facebook…so I wanted to post it for all you guys here on YouTube! Please excuse the fast paced editing and shaky camera — I was a newbie back then
Let’s talk about long layovers!
In my opinion (from years of travel experience), I can tell you that long layovers are THE BEST way to break up long travel days and have the chance to explore a new city for cheap. I’ve had great experiences on long layovers in cities such as Istanbul, Doha, Dubai, Tokyo, Frankfurt, Addis Ababa, Nairobi and tons more!
Did you know that at most major cities in China, you can get a FREE 72 hour transit visa if you have proof of an onwards flight? It’s a great way to save the time & stress of applying for a Chinese visa.
This video documents my recent 18 hour layover in Beijing, as well as gives travel tips if you do the same.
In which city is your most memorable experience on a long layover?
