    Thanks for a great tip. I have to be honest but layovers scare me and i am always in a hurry to reach my final destination thus choosing the least amount of time in-between. Using that time to travel the city is definitely a great idea. However, in my case, being Indian means having to apply and get Visa which can sometimes be a hassle. Nevertheless, I’ll keep this tip handy.

  2. I always wanted to know how this was done an now I do! Do you think there will be any problems with the new bans in Qatar? I will be trying this technique to get a stopover in Bangkok when I am there next, thanks for the info!

  3. I have used layovers to explore a city during the day several times. However, I haven’t had the opportunity to spend the night like this. Doha would be wonderful, so I’ll have to remember this the next time around.

    Very nice tip that if we book multi city tickets we get chance to see over one city. Also your quote travel only makes you richer is the best one. We did this when we were coming from Melbourne to hyderabad we had lay over in Bangkok for 24 hours and we took visa on arrival facility and got a chance to roam around.

    Connecting flights ruin everything sometimes, because of the hectic schedules, I’ve many times got tied up. But on the next travel I am going to go out and explore atleast one site from the city!

    Layovers are a great way to introduce yourself to a country. I haven’t done it recently but it makes perfect travel sense especially if you want to break up the length of the flight and stretch your legs/get some proper sleep.

    This is a really great idea. My wife and I have used this as technique to get a night in Miami for some great Cuban food and strolling the beach. We have found the site Cheapoair.com that lists practically every possible flight to your destination. which makes it easy to find the flights with long layovers. And as a bonus, many times the flights with the long layovers are cheaper than the shorter flights.

    I really had no idea about layovers. But after reading your article, I must appreciate this, It is really great for everyone who is visiting a new nation. I have never used it till yet, but will do it.

  11. This is a great travel tip! I have read something like this before but I had no idea how to do this. It sounds kinda exhausting because you need to plan very well or else you will miss the opportunity to explore. However, I am still eager to try this.
