Im off to Thailand this september, doing north, Laos, Vietnam, Camodia, Back to Bangkok then down to south Thailand around end of november begining of decamber. Just wondered if anyone knew of any trustworthy PADI courses adn where they are. my travelling companion dosnt have the love of marine life that i have and i'd like to go off and do the course for a few days whilst she does some temple things. I have no diving experience only snorkelling, so i need a Diving school to do my certificate thats a reasonable price and reputable. Any locations anyone will like to sugest?
I should have taken the chance of doing it in the maldives but ran out of time :(

If any ones got a any photos of under water diving in Thailand id be grateful, im going to get an underwater camera.

So where exactly are you going in Thailand? In the south, places that spring to mind are Phuket and the Phi-Phi islands... I did mine on Koh Tao for 9,800 which is roughly £136.00 BP Other than Malaysia, Thailand is the only place I've dived, I found it to be quite beautiful. There was massive amounts of marine life, saw turtles, puffa fish, moray eels, Nemo;) Hope this helps x x

Koh Tao is the place to go for taking a padi course... loads of places there and great conditions.. did mine for about 7000 baht
