In Topic: Bali or Similan Islands?

22 March 2014 - 06:46 AM

If I was doing Bali for a week, I'd plan almost exactly what Mike said: 2 days in Menjangan, then move to Tulamben for the rest of the trip, with a day trip or perhaps two (depending on how rough is the channel crossing) to Nusa Penida. For me, Bali is a level higher in dive quality and visibility than Similans (with another day or two diving the popular Phuket sites).

Of course, if I had to fly that long a distance to dive, I'd give up a bit more in travel time, and then spend my time in Raja Ampat :-).


Or, if you're averse to flying too much, maybe Palau?

Personally, I don't want to think of the relationship of greenhouse emissions with diving: every one of my favorite dive destinations requires major amount of flying and motor-boating to reach (and often using local airlines that fly the less fuel efficient planes). :(
