Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines

Good diving companies/places for beginners

Thinking of learning Scuba Diving at Philippines/Indonesia/Malaysia with my friend but we're clueless as to where are the better dive sites, or where to get the certs. One search for bali diving courses and there are plenty yet we don't know how to distinguish the better ones (our priority would be balancing budget and professionalism as we're still studying!) What are the good companies who teach diving for beginners value for money price?

Any advise is much appreciated! :)

You may want to try Discover Scuba Dive Team in  Kuala Lumpur.

This is one of the instructors, Jason. You can try to reach him.

Hope it helps.

Hello, have you searched for diving courses in  Gili Trawangan? I was there last April and it was a great place to dive and there are plenty of diving sites and many schools. From Bali you can reach  Gili Trawangan by boat in just an hour or so, and it is much less crowded and the beaches are fabulous.

We stayed in  Mango Dive and they were great when taking us to dive, also it is a cool place to stay.

If you want to consider learning in the Philippines, Anilao Diving and Resorts is an excellent place to try. You can read more about it on A friend who's a diving enthusiast suggested this site and hopefully you can get more detailed tips there.
