    Heya cotters...

    I have been procastinating on taking up my diving beginner's course.
    Really want to stop dreaming about it n JUST DO IT.

    Planning to do it in Redang ...
    or any similar beaches ...
    most probably in the 3rd or 4th week of April.
    Looking for kakis to join me...hee...the more the merrier..and cheaper too!
    But since the peak season is coming...must book fast before it is all taken.
    hahhaha Any like-minded takers....? for a short escape far away from the concrete!

      hi girls, i read something about Redang in the thread, Jemay have you been there? Others?

      I'm thinking of going to chill out, any idea which hotel to stay, I've narrowed it to berjaya redang and the new laguna one (i think that filmed mo mo teahouse or something like that there)

      Any recs of hotel? Is beach in front nice? How's the snorkeling at marine park?

      Lastly, usually you guys stay for 4N3D (first night on coach i think)?

      thanks for answering my long winded qn.

        lolitapop, Jemay has been there

        It's a long bus ride if you are going to Redang, around 9 hours. Usually an overnight bus ride and you reach Terengganu at 6 plus in the morning. From there, you take a ferry to Pulau Redang which takes around 1 and 30 mins.

        There are different resorts at different stretches of the beach. The prices of the rooms at different resorts are usually indications of the luxury factor.

        I stayed at Redang Beach Resort and they have new chalets built when I went in 2002. The water is so clear and I saw my first sea turtle, stingray, morray eel and octupus (elusive) for the first time in my life. It was really fun. Snorkelling at the marine park is good. The sea is filled with marine life!

        IMHO, the quality of the resors don't really matter to me. I was out on the beach 3/4 of my time when at Redang.

        Go book your holiday and have fun, dear!

                              No, coze my package is 4 nights 3 days, which means that we'll need to spend one night on the bus to there, and another one night on the bus back to singapore. So that left 2 nights which we'll spend at the hotel.
