Multi-city travel can leave you feeling drained and exhausted. The key to enjoying it more is making your layovers work for you instead of against you. Making a quick stop between two points of travel can improve the experience and leave you feeling recharged.
When planning an itinerary through a travel consultant or airline, it’s possible to ask them to suggest stopover points for added value. It’s a good idea to take advantage of this service since you’ll get to experience an unexpected destination and feel like you’re getting more out of the journey.
Some cities are more conducive to quick stopover than others. They offer sightseeing and food options that can be accessed easily from the airport. Even if your time there is short, you’re sure to find something special on offer. Here are four cities that are ideal for a quick stopover.
Singapore is a cosmopolitan city that enjoys a central location between Southeast Asia, Indonesia, and Australia. Its small size and many sightseeing options make it ideal for a short layover. You can visit the ultra-futuristic Supertree Grove, check out the wildlife at the Singapore zoo, or dig into some delicious local delicacies. However, leaving Changi airport may be a bit of a challenge since there are so many entertainment options on offer in the complex itself!
2. San Francisco
Quirky San Francisco has plenty to offer travelers—beautiful scenery, awe-inspiring architecture and amazing farm-to-table food. You can even unwind between flights by taking a stroll in one of the walkable neighborhoods. Additionally, thanks to the quick and accessible public transport options it’s easy to get from the airport to the city center and back.
London’s Heathrow airport is one of the busiest in the world, so a long layover can feel quite overwhelming. But, its location makes it easy to get to the city and enjoy its many delights. You can be in Central London in less than 25 minutes if you take the Heathrow express. Once you’re in London, it’s not hard to get to many of the main attractions like St Paul’s Cathedral and the Tower of London. The city’s convenient public-transportation system makes getting around a breeze.
If you’re flying via Iceland, don’t think twice about making a quick stopover in Reykjavik. Airlines like WOWair and Icelandair offer stopover deals that include the option to stay for up to 7 days in the country. There’s even a stopover buddy service through which passengers are provided with local guides. Some of the unmissable sights are the Aurora Borealis, the Blue Lagoon and Hallgrimskirkja church. You can get back on a plane and continue your journey post your Icelandic adventures!
