A month in Thailand – discovering diving and Koh Tao
It’s our second day on Koh Tao and we have a day off from the diving course, because all the instructors have gone at sea, so we start the day slowly.
I go scouting for other places where we could move. At the North end of Sairee Beach there some really lovely bungalows but they turn out to be rather expensive. We decide to remain at the Wind Beach resort.
We eat some more thai food, glass noodles with prawns, then we go for a swim and a beautiful sunset presents itself to be photographed.
You’ll see along the way that Koh Tao is the island where each sunset is more stunning than the last one.
The next day we’re going for scuba diving, but I fail to take mask off underwater and decide to drop off. Needless to say I didn’t exactly feel like a fish in the water so I will stick snorkelling from now on.
Breathing underwater was pretty amazing and I got to see a lot of coloured tropical fish, as this was an national park, protected area. Also, I got half of my money back as I didn’t complete the course.
If you want to go for a diving course I recommend you start with snorkelling first, and see how that goes for you, because once you’re deep underwater panicking is not an option.
In my future posts: a visit inland and rain like no other.
