Vlog #1: It’s all about Cherating, surfing, and the local beach vibes!
My experience surfing in Cherating, a small beach village on the east coast of Malaysia. I learned to surf here, with the Cherating Point Surf School.
I had a lovely time at the southwest coastal town of Sri Lanka, doing what everyone here does — surfing! And when not surfing, I am eating the delicious local food, chatting with the locals, and just chilling by the beach.
Vietnam might be relatively unknown as a diving destination, but I had a lovely time exploring Nha Trang’s underwater with Rainbow Divers Nha Trang — even if it was just 2 dives, and only for a day.
My experience surfing in Bali’s Kuta Beach as a beginner — with lots of paddling, falling and tumbling; and the proud feeling of catching those few breaks!
Bali, one of the most beautiful and exotic islands in the world — and it goes all the way down to its underwater world too. In Tulamben, I dived a wreck, saw a statue underwater, and swam with a school of humpheads.
The IST dive gear brand from Taiwan has been around for almost 40 years, and can now be purchased online in Malaysia. Find out more!
There are only a few places to dive on the Western coast of the Malaysian peninsular — and Langkawi Island is one of them. Here’s my dive experience at the Pulau Payar Marine Park.
When it comes to diving, Koh Lipe might not be the island that comes to mind. However, it does offer some interesting dives– and here’s an account of my good, and bad experiences.
Diving in the Phi Phi islands with Sea Fun Divers– only for a day, but I saw lots of turtles, and a leopard shark.
I have never heard of Pulau Weh until I started diving early this year, when I was told of the beautiful reefs and marine life surrounding the island. So for my dive trip this time, Pulau Weh seemed like the most attractive choice.
My second time back in Tenggol Island for another round of diving. There were many sites I missed the first time round– so I decided to head back to explore some more!
Most people do not know about Pulau Tenggol as it was previously uninhabited; but it is popular amongst the diving community as it offers pristine corals and is teeming with marine life.
Phuket was an obvious choice for a diving beginner like me as it is said to be one of the best spots for simple and easy dives. I did 7 dives with Sea Bees Diving, and explored sites like Koh Bida Nok, Shark Point, Koh Doc Mai and Racha Yai.
First things first, I need to write this down… “I’m a certified diver!!!” and it feels awesome. This post is to document my amazing journey, so I will never forget.
