The Layover

About the Show

layover_about-the-show-01

Anthony Bourdain is a seasoned traveler who’s hit up all corners of the globe many times over. More often than not, he has time to kill in some of the world’s biggest airport hubs. Instead of sitting at the airport hotel, he sets out to explore each city in the short amount of time he has there.

In The Layover, Anthony Bourdain is high octane, gritty, caffeinated and traveling with a sense of urgency. Why? Because he has only 24-48 hours to unleash an unpredictable story about a place, a people and their food. Tony travels through the US, Asia and Europe, and reveals insider tips that only the most seasoned traveler would know.

Watch as Tony quickly gathers local intel, faces the enemy of time and distance, gets off the tired old tourist path and tries something new, all within a matter of hours.

 

See behind-the-scenes photos from The Layover and watch exclusive video of Tony's trips.
