Ko Tao, Thailand
It’s among those rare places on earth where you can have the privilege to swim along whale sharks. The submerged wildlife abounds and you are likely to see dozens of stingrays and hundreds of thousands of tropical fish on your diving excursion.
Unlike other nearby islands, Ko Tao has a calm vibe both on the shore and off shore as well. The shallow sites for instance Japanese garden is ideal for amateurs. You can dive all year-round, but if you explore the submerged life between July to September then you will be awarded with great visibility.
Dahab, Red Sea, Egypt
With plentitude of corals just offshore, tranquil Dahab uts on the table some phenomenal diving experience, and to tempt the skilled divers there’s a blue hole as well.
Daham is relatively unmarred than Egypt’s main dive spot – Sharm el Sheikh. But still there’s enough infrastructure which supports several dive spots. Poseidon and Big Blue are the most prominent of them. All the year-round visibility of 30m is an added boon, making it ideal for the tender foots. The months between May to September may get a bit clumsy due to excessive heat, but the rest part of the year is pleasurable
Gili Trawangan, Gili Islands, Indonesia
Indonesia gloats about an aquatic ancient Rome, the warm, transparent waters near Gili Trawangan are a habitat to more than 3500 marine species. It’s not hard to guess why this is regarded as a submerged Africa. The corals here are not just another corals, in fact they jointly form a labyrinthine of water ways through which numerous creatures migrate.
This luxurious diving experience won’t hurt your pocket too bad, because the cut-throat competition between many European die operators keeps the prices in check. The snorkeling is always on the charts with such amazing clarity.
Many travelers avoid the rainy season from November to April because the waves can get a touch to strong for the liking of many.
