Where is the best place to get scuba diving certification?

We are a family of three traveling through Malaysia and Thailand.  We want to get our scuba certifications and do some diving. We would love some recommendations on where to go.

There are quite a few options in those two countries, but I would highly recommend doing it in Thailand on the island of Koh Tao. It's cheap, has great accommodation, beautiful dive sites, competition so you can choose a dive resort that works best for you and your family, and it's lovely to explore when not diving. They often call it a "dive factory" because there are so many people getting their certification there, however the shop I received my PADI Open Water & Advanced was very professional, thorough, and welcoming. Seashelldivers  

As for other diving locations, check out the
Perhentian Islands in Malaysia, as well as the Tioman Island 

In Thailand, check out the Similan islands and Surin Islands for some world class diving. Only accessible by liveaboard dive boat, but well worth the trip and money.
