I am very new to this community and I am hoping that I can connect.
I will travel in Borneo (Malaysia) in October and I am already starting to organise my diving.
I have contacted a number of places and they all replied to me with offers including accommodations and pretty high prices. I am aware that it will be an expensive experience but I do not wanna book something in advance and arrive there at the last moment regretting my choice(s). I am forced to book in advance as I need to arrange permits and so forth. Of course my top priority is Sipadan.
I was wondering if you guys are kind enough to share your experience(s) and advises with me, it would be great if you let me know who did you dive with, if you recommend them and so forth..
thank you in advance
We are planning a 2 week break with 5 days of diving in the first half of December 2018. Still flexible on location but want to relax and avoid full-moon parties and packaged tourism.
I have read Kao Tao is good but not sure about the weather. Khao Lak seems good but you need to do a liveboard. How about Kao Lanta? Anyone has been to Koh Rong Samloem in Cambodia or Con Son in Vietnam?
Any other tips?
I would love to discover diving when I am in the Andamans at the end of August, maybe do an open water course.
There are so many companies you can go to, and I wonder whether the sites near Havelock and Neil are better than e.g. chidiya thapu or Long Island, or just really touristy?
We are going to spend 5 days diving and relaxing in Malaysia (within a longer tour of Malaysia and Singapore).
I ruled out Sipadan/Semporna for safety so wonder what would be the best location where to dive in peninsular Malaysia in July otherwise?
We will be flying from Singapore and going from there to Penang.
Thanks a lot!
We've had to shift our trip in the Philippines due to Mayon exploding and we are looking into whale shark experiences in Palawan.
What is the likelihood of seeing whale sharks between the 9th and 12th of February?
