We recently posed a question to you lovely guys and girls on the subject of layovers. All of us know that one of the best perks of the job when working as cabin crew is getting to see the world, whether it’s for an hour or a day, most of you will have got to visit at least one awesome place!

We gathered up your favourites and have put them (in no particular order) below - we’ve also chucked in a little information on each place so if you find yourself heading to any of these beautiful destinations, you’ll be clued up before you get there.

Full of glitz and glamour, Dubai is a stunning destination and for fans of the finer things in life, well, it’s just perfect. Dubai even has its own shopping festival, so you will not be short of things to buy, from designer handbags to fancy watches. So sail through the dessert and dine at some of the best restaurants in the world, in Dubai.

San Francisco
San Francisco is considered one of the greatest cities in the world for many things, including five-star dining, a happening theatre scene, and gay and lesbian culture. And, beyond the fifty-square-mile city, in the surrounding Bay Area, there’s so much more to explore, including Silicon Valley’s innovations, Marin’s Headlands, the Napa Valley’s vineyards, and Berkeley’s free spirit.

Maldives has deep blue seas, turquoise reefs, white sandy beaches and palm trees. It is also a place full of character, where its people have long spent their days languishing in the very essence of idyll living. While it is the perfect place to sit on a beach and watch a sunset with a cocktail balanced on your hand, it is also a geographical marvel, knowing that there are thousands of fish swimming around the vivid corals just a few feet away from where you sit.

This beautiful city is full of what European cities are known for (outdoor markets, restaurants, shops, museums, and churches) and is fantastic for sight seeing as well as an awesome night out. The core center of town,provides days of enjoyment for those looking to experience the life of Barcelona while the beaches the city was built upon provide sun and relaxation during the long periods of gorgeous warm weather.

Singapore - well, what to say about Singapore, you’d be forgiven for forgetting where you are when you arrive that’s for sure! This is mainly due to being able to find every corner of the world in just one place - from China Town to Little India, take a tour of the whole world in just a few days by visiting this place. It is crammed with bustling markets, street food and bars, but also full of opulence and class in some of the world’s most expensive and breath taking shopping malls.
