Gulf of Thailand
On our last day on Ko Tao we went to Nangyuan Island off the coast to catch some rays.
Also we went to a beach in Ko Tao called Shark Bay where you can apparently snorkel amongst different types of sharks but unfortunately (or fortunately) we didnt see any when we were there and managed to come back with all our limbs.
The main and it seems the only business here is diving. We have now completed the open water scuba course and can now dive to 18m/60ft. The course lasted for 5 days, starting off with a lot of theory in the classroom (which neither of us thought we would see whilst away) and a lot of diving, first of all in the pool.

Then of course 4 dives out in the open water where we went to sites like Twins, Chumphon Pinnacle and White Rocks all of which were spectacular sites. Where we saw moray eel, reef sharks, trigger fish, banner and angel fish amongst others.

The diving school aswell provided us with accommodation, which was a bungalow with a view of the beach.
But the weather isnt always good out here and weve had to suffer some of the worst thunderstorms weve ever seen of the past couple of days. Not to mention the local insects which are the size of small birds.
