Places to dive on the planet are many. And there are even more countries. And all around, the underwater world amazes with its diversity and uniqueness. Diving tourism countries can be divided into two categories:
The first is “.You must dive here.!”. This includes all the countries of Southeast Asia: Thailand .Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, New Guinea and so on. The Caribbean and Latin America are on this list. Excellent diving can be done in Europe, South Africa, Australia and, of course, in Egypt. In these countries, both diving and dive safaris are practiced.
The second is “It’s worth diving there!” These countries are not classified as diving countries. But the curious diver will find something to see here, too. These are the Austrian lakes, SpainGreece, Tunisia, Sri Lanka and so on. Diving here is amazing with its uniqueness. But to dive into the depths of the sea in these countries is worthwhile.
