    Where to do PADI in Thailand

    I am coming to thailand with my girlfriend in December. We want to do a PADI course. Where are the best dives sites and about how much would a course set us back? Can we just turn up and start a course the next day?

    I haven't been there yet, but everyone talks about Koh Tao (gor dtao) being the best place for this. The name of this island means "turtle". On the map, you will find the island down south not too far from Koh Samui. I have listed a few web sites below to help your research (I will add more later). But really, there are dive companies all over this small island. One of my friends said that it cost him about 8000 baht for a PADI course. For sure, shop around once you are there.

    Ko Tao and Phuket are the main places where the diving schools are based.

    Another website to add to Suthees' list: Look at for some example Ko Tao prices.
