Similan, Thailand (Andaman Sea)
There are two distinct attractions in Similan. The first is pinnacles covered with red and purple soft corals and bathed in nutrient-rich (and commonly murky) water, which attracts mantas and whale sharks. The second attraction is located west of Phuket, where you?ll find coral reefs, ravishing white sand bottoms, and a profusion of tropical fish. The close proximity of these radically different marine environments gives Similan its wonderful charm. Due to the many small islands, the way to dive this area is by liveaboard. Similan should be dived only from Nov to May, due to the monsoons in the rainy season.

Sipadan, Borneo (Sabah, Malaysia)
Tiny island on the northeastern coast of Borneo (East Malaysia). Not much to offer besides diving, but the diving is spectacular. Marine life is incredibly abundant and diverse. Tornadoes of barracuda and jacks are thrilling (and great for photos), and the sea turtles are a constant treat. Diving is typically 3 boat dives a day, plus unlimited shore diving at Drop Off (10 paces from the major resorts). Only 40ft/12m from shore, the reef at Drop Off falls to a depth of 2,000ft/600m - the world's most dramatic near-shore drop off. You can dive with an amazing mix of pelagics and reef creatures.
