As the last leg of my 6-month journey, I will be stopping over in Kuala Lumpur from the 24th to 30th of January. I would like to fly out or take a bus from Kuala Lumpur to go to a place where I can do an OWD course.
However, I noticed that the east peninsula is affected by monsoon season, so Tioman, Redang and Perentian are not an option.
There are cheap flights available to Miri, so I am considering this. However, I am not sure about the weather there either. Is diving there a good idea in the end of January?
What are my other options? Which other good dive spots are easily reachable with a flight budget of about 150 EUR from Kuala Lumpur and are in season in late January?
