My number 1 thing on my to-do-list in Thailand was scubadiving. I had bargained almost everything on my journey, to keep enough money for my Padi. To save even more money I chose to go by bus and boat instead of a plane.
Once I arrived in Koh Tao, I made a great deal at one of the diveshops. The next morning I started my divingcourse with some theory. When I finished that, I went into the ocean for my first dive. Although I didn’t see much, I loved it and I couldn’t wait for my second dive!!
On my second dive I found NEMO!! On my other dives I saw lots and lots more. I saw seaturtles swimming next to me, snakes, snails and many other beautiful creatures. I absolutely was in heaven.
When I finished my first course, I immedeately decided to get my ‘Advanced Course’ to go even deeper and see more beauty of the underwaterworld. For the advanced course I had to do a nightdive and a deepdive and I chose diving in a shipwreck and coordinate diving.
I can recommend diving in Koh Tao to everybody. It is such an amazing experience you’ll never forget!
