koh lantaThere are so many places in Asia to go diving and there’s even so many different types of diving that it’s almost impossible to list them all. The following is a list of some of the countries in Asia where you can find the best diving spots. You can go scuba diving, snorkeling, deep-sea diving, swimming with sharks, dolphins, whales and many more.

Koh Lanta is the hub where you can go diving from. There are many tiny islands around the area which can all be reached by ferry and provide amazing dives. Koh Rok is an uninhabited island which also has beautiful white beaches. Makes for a perfect day trip for snorkelers. The water is very shallow but because of this reason the water is crystal clear.


Aur Island is one of the hottest diving spots in all of Malaysia. It’s a 5km long island that has large, pristine coral formations as it is far enough away from the mainland. You can go snorkeling or scuba diving here and the visibility is excellent.

The Komodo Islands in Indonesia are one of the best places to go diving in teh world. First off because of the world famous komodo dragons. Second, because of the stunning views of sandy white beaches ringed with high grassy, green mountains. The abundance of different types of fish is simply overwhelming.

Hong Kong
Hong Kong provides diving opportunities for those who are bored of the tropical coral reefs and white sands. The water is sub-tropical so diving is usually done with scuba gear and a thermal suit. There are artificial reefs that can be dived on as well as natural rocky islands filled with a diversity of marine fauna and hundreds of fish.

These are just some of the best diving spots in Asia, there are many thousands more!
