Expert Hosts!

Lance Evander - Urban Diversion Founder, expert guide, crazy, sure to keep the group laughing.

Deo 
*Our local Thailand guide for many years, he is a fun guy who knows the area well and can customize our adventure to our needs.

 

Why November? This is the best time to visit Thailand, low rain and a cool breeze keep away the summer humidity.

How it works: This is a perfect trip where you can choose the parts you wish to take part in or add your own excursions! You can come for all of the parts you want, or leave out one of the destinations of the trip to create your own adventure!

 
What to Expect  (Cambodia, Northern Thailand, more):

Northern Thailand  - for those of you that have never been, you are in for a once-in-a-lifetime treat!! Cooking the best thai food you have ever had yourself, Imagine riding a bamboo boat down a river to a remote village where you jump on an elephant that takes you up the hills to a long-neck tribe in jungles.  That night we gather in a hut, make amazing food on a open floor fire, chat and laugh before slumbering off on sleeping matts.

Cambodia - You are whisked straight away to a different world filled with ancient temples as far as the eyes cans see, the place where Indiana Jones was filmed, monkeys following you every where you go in the evenings we are enjoying the new culture of a country who has half their amazingly happy population under 30!

More - we will be making short half day trips into Burma and Laos so you can get your feet wet in the neighboring cultures!

Get ready because it is time to explore, we are heading on an adventure through the jungle, on a boat to a magical island, to breathtaking underwater views.

Who will be on the trip?: Expect 20 of your fellow Urban Diversion members as well as non-members looking to escape the rat-race of the working world and experience some peaceful surreality of the pristine jungle combined with the thrill of foreign adventures.  THIS HAS FILLED UP EVERY YEAR!

How UD Trips Work?: Think of UD trips as friends and friends of friends traveling together.  We have arranged an exciting itinerary of included activities and some optional activities below.  A few weeks before the trip you will be given a very detailed customized itinerary... This is what the host is doing that day, join, or organize your own itinerary. Because your host knows the area very well, the group can customize things on the fly!

Travel Arrangements: YOU are responsible for your own flight to Thailand AND the designated inland flights.  See I'm ready to book my flights below.

Getting Around: We will arrange boats, planes, and other means of transport inside Thailand. You will be on the go several times so PACK LIGHT! Also, you MUST PACK EVERYTHING IN A BACKPACK!! Beaches and small villages are not designed for wheeled suitcases. You may need to carry everything on your back for at least 1/2 mile in the sun on the beach at each segment! Bangkok is perhaps the cheapest place in the world to buy luggage. A good option is for travelers to buy an extra bag there to fill with all your exotic purchases.

Regular Arrival - (Depart Fri- Land Sun) - Yes, you will probably leave SF on Friday and land in Thailand on Sunday morning!! The flight is not that long but you are flying in the evening and over the date line (You earn this day back when you fly home...If you depart at 9am you may land at 10am!)

NORTH THAILAND ITINERARY
Nov 18 - Dec 24 (Sat-Sun) -

The famous South Gate of Angkor, here we will have a private tour of the behind the scenes areas 

Tues - First day of adventure as we head to Pnom Penn, the killing fields, inland flight to Chiang Mai with airport pickup and straight to our hotel

Wed Chiang Mai exploring, a amazing Thai Cooking Class on a farm (the best food you eat in thailand you made!), famous night markets

night stay to catch the non-touristed local night life.
Sun - Say goodbye or continue on Week 2 and You fly to Bangkok!

 

Host Notes: Hey all! We have spent a lot of time creating this itinerary to get the most out of your time there!
