Great Layovers – One City, Five Hours

I haven’t been flying United much these days.  And because I haven’t, I missed that one of my favorite Hemisphere features – One City, Five Hours about how to have great layovers with limited time in various cities – had not been published since 2011.

One of my recent great layovers was in London where I had one evening.

One of my recent great layovers was in London where I had one evening. Unfortunately there was no One City, Five Hour feature to help me along so I had to find a local instead.

Often my travels for work limit how much time I really get in a particular city because I spend most of my time at the client (or sleeping), so I love finding ways to see things quickly.

I was delighted to discover that this Hemispheres Magazine feature is archived for me to plan future whirlwind trips!

The series (which ran from 2009 to 2011) focused primarily on cities where United customers were likely to have layovers, although there were a couple other random stops thrown in (Reno and Albuquerque, for example).

I will definitely be using the Singapore guide for an upcoming evening there before I leave on a cruise.  The guides are a great supplement to some of my other fast travel resources such as United’s Three Perfect Days and the New York Times’ 36 Hours series.

Do you use quick travel resources?  Which are your favorites?
