If ur going to seriously do SE Asia, you must take in some of Malaysia!

Why does everyone insist on caning Thailand and not giving Malaysia a second thought?????

So many places of interest there - Penang, Batu Caves in KL, the view from the Petronas Towers, Melaka - mixture of Dutch and Portuguese history and culture, not to mention the beautiful islands of Langkawi and Pangkor.... AND THIS IS JUST THE PENINSULA SIDE!!!!

There's tropical jungle to experience at Taman Negara...

Hope this enlightens!

Yes we have our advanced PADI open water.

You could go on a day trip that would consist of 2 dives and that cost roughly £40.I think the cost of renting equipment is on top of that.There were also lots of offers for the live-aboard trips which looked reasonable.I think they were close to £100 but you get 4 or five dives on one of those.Scuba in Thailand/Phuket is a must though.The sea is perfect as it is so warm and there is so much to see.Hope this helps:)

woohoo I'm a Singaporean,
but I wouldn't recommend u to come to Singapore haha.
it's too much of an urban city

yes Phuket! i luv that place,even as an asian.
my boyfren's european n he luvved that place too
the beaches, the bars, the clubs, the cocktails..yummy

but there are many other islands in asia, that are much more beautiful..
u hafta check out Pulau Redang, and Pulau Perhentian in Malaysia
they are quiet, gorgeous with clear turqoise waters..
cheap and just simple, down to earth.
just snorkelling, n u can see turtles, baby sharks, giant baracudas..
There are many other islands in Terengganu, just google 'Pulau' n u can find many.. an eg is Kapas, and Gemia..

In indonesia, there are beautiful islands too.
if u've been to Bali, perhaps you've been to Gili Trawangan.. it's near Lombok.. n it's catered to backpackers.Nice place to go diving

there are many VERY secluded islands.. such as Manado
which only cater to divers, n i guess they must be paradise

OH i wld luvv to visit Goa someday,
if u have the opportunity to stop by there,
im sure u'll love it. it's a beachlover paradise!

have fun around the world,
