Diving in Koh Tao Thailand

Diving in Koh Tao, Thailand

I arrived in Koh Tao after a very long journey from Bangkok. We took an hour-long train ride, and boat to get to Koh Tao.  By the time we finally arrived, we were tired but looking forward to our first dive in Thailand.

I had just got my PADI Certification and couldn’t wait to get into the water. The water was so clear, and the experience was mind-blowing. We were able to organize the dives and rent all the equipment for the underwater adventures from the place where we stayed.

Where we stayed: Buddha View Dive Resort

900 baht a night for a room – approx $29


Diving and snorkeling
Sites: Chumphon Pinnacle, Sail Rock, Twins, 3 rocks, Southwest Pinnacle
Food: everything is delicious! Especially the breakfast place in Buddha View
Next destination: Phi Phi Island (ferry, bus, then another ferry)
