Looks like I'll be headed to Bangkok. Does anyone know of any good dive shops in Bangkok, preferably one that you've worked with or have heard about from a friend?
Rather be diving.
While there are several dive shops in Bangkok, the diving is quite a bus ride away. You will find the best in Phuket (a full day's bus ride or a short flight) and some fair diving in Pattaya (a couple of hours away).
