Ola spent 3 weeks on Phi Phi for his rescue diver and divemaster training. The plan was not to make a career out of it, just to get some more knowledge and diving experience. It was a great experience, meeting a lot of fellow divers and get to see what it is like to work in a dive shop and as a dive guide. Dive sites around Phi Phi varies, favorites are the sites around the 2 small Bida islands just outside Phi Phi Leh, diving closer Phi Phi Leh and Maya bay is not so great, but dive operators go there all the time hoping to see some Reef Sharks, this is often a waste of time. Phi Phi has a lot of bars and restaurants and the place is often crowded with backpackers going around having drinks from buckets. A tip is to get a place far from the city center if you want to relax a bit.
