maybe sipadan :dunno: cos afaik wef jan next year all structures at sipadan would have to be torn down and visitors are not allowed to stay on the island no more..kernels said:I've a choice of these 3 places to go but only have dough for 1 this year. Which do u recommend that I go first?
1) Sipadan/Manado - u'll have opportunities to "sight" for pelagics and macro. Sipadan is closing down but that does not mean u cant dive Sipadan in future... just that no operators/divers allowed to stay on the island wef 2005. Budget = above 1K (min stay suggested 6D/5N). As for Manado, SILKAIR is having a flight promo so u might want to consider... Budget = below 1K (5/4 night).kernels said:I've a choice of these 3 places to go but only have dough for 1 this year.

this may be a little bit OT, but I think I will just say this, that it should not be ok to go mountain climbing after diving. It is the same theory as no fly time, that you should not travel by air too soon after diving, standard 24 hours, or your dive comp's calculation.Aldrin said:I think you need an advanced divers license for sipadan. If you have an advance divers license, can consider combining with the Mount KK climb that NickMak is trying to arrange for Dec. Dive and climb, deep waters to high altitude.
