Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

This is a question that I often get asked, and really it is not as simple as YES or NO. If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course then the answer is yes.

It really can go a long way in any accident, emergency or cancellations/delays whilst travelling. Many travellers to Thailand & Southeast Asia hold a perception that as basic medical care is relatively cheap, there's little need for travel insurance. While it is true that basic healthcare in Southeast Asia can be cheap, the emphasis should be on the word basic — not cheap. True, Thailand does have a higher standard of medical care than other [...]
