Malaysia as a country isn’t very well known for scuba diving, and some people are even unaware that Malaysia is divided into two main areas (Peninsula & Borneo). However, some of the most wonderful dive sites in the world are found within its borders, but they are often referred to by the names of the islands or dive sites. Sitting directly between Thailand and Indonesia, and connecting The Indian & Pacific Oceans, the diving in Malaysia can be world class. There are lots of regions on both sides and in the middle. Day trips, shore dives and liveaboard cruises are all possible.
