    Hi all,

    I'm in Malaysia with work for 3 weeks from 10th February to 28th February.

    First week I'll be in Cyberjaya. Second two weeks I'll be in KL.

    Going to take my kit and hoping to get as many dives in as possible (nights and weekends).

    Any recommendations for:
    - Itineraries
    - Dive shops
    - Destinations

    NO diving on the East Coast because of the weather.

    Actually, some dive centres on the east coast islands (e.g., Tioman, Tenggol, Perhentian) are having promotion deals for the next few months despite it officially still being monsoon season.
    Personally I'll probably wait until March or so before going to one of the east coast islands.

    So the East Coast is out, but anything do-able during the weekends on the West coast? I'll be based in KL.
    I need to be back in KL for the Monday morning so that rules out flying anywhere...

    There seems to be some diving around Langkawi but I've never tried it since the reports of crappy visibility aren't very enticing.
    Sorry to say there aren't many options this time of year that exclude flying.
    If you could get a Friday off then perhaps a weekend trip up to Thailand might be a better option. I think it's currently the peak season for diving in the Andaman Sea so conditions should be pretty good.
