A trip to Thailand will never be complete without sighting their beaches! Not only they are famous in the world because of their pristine white sands, but also because of the fun and excitement they offer!
Scuba diving is one of the most sought after sports today and you will surely enjoy it in Thailand!
The island of Koh Tao lies just 35 kilometers north of Koh Phangan and is a tourist paradise for scuba diving and snorkeling. Each month thousands of visitors from all over the world flock to Koh Tao for its cheap diving courses, crystal clear waters, and beautiful landscapes.
There are hundreds of dive shops and schools on the island, so whether you’re an experienced diver or it’s your first time learning, you won’t have a problem finding the right place for you. Koh Tao is a very international island, so all dive schools will have an English-speaking instructor and you will be trained through an international certification program.
Koh Tao is the perfect place to dive with its teeming sea life, beautiful corals, and deep waters. If you’re still not sold on the beauty of the island and are wondering if it’s really worth it, consider the cost. It costs around 9,000 Baht to get your open water certification and includes accommodation, while the same course in Australia would cost you 12,000 Baht and does not include any extras.
If you’re all dived out but still have time to explore Koh Tao, book a long tailed boat ride over to Koh Nang Yuan, a cluster of three small islands in the north. These islands, connected by a small sandbar, offers one of the most spectacular views in all of Thailand and some of the best snorkeling spots. It’s the perfect spot for a day trip, as you can lounge on the beach, splash around in the water, hike to the island viewpoint, and order a cocktail from the beach bar.
