    These books of dive sites are very localized in their scope. Most places I go, I try to get one of they are still available- most have gone out of print. They are usually fairly pricey.

    Amazon is a good way to search.

    What's wrong with asking here about any site in the world?

    Nothing, but is there an answer to this:

    ?

    Teamcasa is absolutely right though, :sblogo: is going to be your best resource in the short run.

    If a location is being visited by enough people to be included in a list of "the best in the world" it probably is no longer really among the best.

    Best is subjective too... to some it would be cavern diving, deep diving, no-vis diving, super tons of fishies diving, etc.

    i see your points,,

    I think I am wanting to see some varied marine life, sharks, would love to be in with a whale one day.
    I've started taking photos on dives and want to do more.
    I want to do night dives, I am into trying challenging dives, but mainly I just want to see wonderous things.

    I was looking at package holidays to red sea with explorers for around £500 (no instruction just dives+acom) but wondered if the dives included would be of my choice or just wherever is closest/easiest, which might not be the best, I duno? I'm going to look at some other places too.
    anyway,,
