Ao Nang – PADI Open Water Course – Scuba Diving

Our departure from Chiang Mai was exciting. Not because I didn’t enjoy my time there, but because the four of us would be starting our PADI Open Water SCUBA diving course! We arrived late in the evening and took a taxi from the airport into Ao Nang town. It was dark so we could not…
