    Short stop in Nha Trang between two night buses to try out diving in Vietnam. The place is famous for its beaches and is a very big touristic location. I had heard good things about the diving there and after more than 2 months without going underwater, I wanted to do some dives. I booked a 3 dives trip with Rainbow Divers for 90$. I would happily recommend them as the equipment was new... read more »

    Thailand is one of the top diving destinations in the world and has some beautiful dive sites. I didn't go to the Similan Islands which are listed in the Top 10 best diving sites but Ko Phi Phi and Ko Tao, the places where I dived, where already beautiful and totally worth it.

I really loved Ko Tao and if I had listen to myself I would have stayed far too long. A few people I met there came "for 3 days, 3 months ... read more »

Ko Lipe is small with two main beaches where resorts line up. None of them are the classical tourist factory but rather small, ranging from very ba... read more »

    For christmas, I traveled for the first time to the Maldives, a country made of islands in the middle of the Indian Ocean, south of India. The Maldives are extraordinarily beautiful. There are hundreds of islands grouped in atolls. Most islands are quite small, the average size being a few hundred meters in diameter. The vegetation can be luxuriant and the water is crystal clear at around 30... read more »
