I've not dived for over 10 years in Thailand. There are some really good operations out of Pattaya however the waters are amidst one of the busiest shipping routes in SE Asia and is the least attractive on your list along with Hua Hin.

Koh Tao was the cheap choice years ago and was popular with backpackers but has gone upmarket and has some excellent sites. The problem I found with Koh Tao was it's such a small island and the accomodation is squeezed into such a small place and is somewhat overpriced by Thai standards.

I'd go for Koh Samui on this side of Thailand.


On the Andaman side ,Krabi area is a good choice as is Kao Lak.
