Hi folks!
I am planning to go to Thailand this November, or early December. I can only go to South, or North Andaman sea. Which way would you go? Why? Thank you in advance.

I would go North, higher diversity of sites, I personally could spend a week on Richelieu Rock.

 

South has some good sites (Hin Daeng, Hin Muang, Koh Ha) but in my experience they get better in spring-time, then the whalesharks and mantas seem to appear more frequently. 

 

Have fun,

-Morten

I would go North - heading in the direction of the Southern tip of Myanmar.   Richelieu Rock is wonderful.  Careful of the boats - some real cattle boats in that region, including some that advertise most.  I've done 2 liveaboard trips up there.  Nice diving - but expect a fair amount of dynamite fishing.  Beats the water temp in San Diego :-)
