The Layover

Somewhat of an intermission, Anthony Bourdain’s third show, They Layover, has a completely different tone and style than his other shows. Based around the premise that Tony should show the best of what visitors can experience on a long layover in various cities around the globe, the show ran for only two seasons, from 2011-2013.

Given the show’s premise, it is a great show for highlighting the world’s major cities – often the kinds of places that Bourdain generally didn’t travel in favor of lesser-known destinations and more remote settings. If you want to watch a show that has lots of actionable advice for the kind of travel most of us do, The Layover is the show to watch.

Here’s a list of all episodes of The Layover across its two seasons. Any links will take you to the specific guide to the places Bourdain ate in that destination. This page is regularly updated as new posts are published about these episodes/destinations.
