Dear English-speaking readers, this page is an automatic Google translation from a post originally written in French.

I offered myself a very nice dive expedition to Redang, about an hour and a half by boat from Perhentian. There, the visibility is exceptional and the three dives that we chained in real decors of postcards are a treat.
Here, there are reefs worthy of Nemo, with spectacular schools of fish and an amazing variety of corals.
A lot of turtles cross our path and even some white tip sharks, that I have unfortunately not managed to photograph, only to film ... Too fast for the slow digital autofocus of my small compact!
Sharks are sharp and thin, tapered, they glide in the water flexibly, and watch them evolve around the reef is a spectacle so striking. They have a crazy pace, compared to other fish, we see that they are really cut for hunting.
The day is fun on the boat. Between two dives, we are let loose on small beaches with the taste of paradise.
Bright white sand, translucent blue water. At 30 or even 31 degrees, please ... We all take pictures.
I already had a lot of sympathy over the previous days with Liesbeth, a young Belgian, who has been in Asia for 8 months ... She just passed the Open Water, the equivalent of our French Level 1 for diving. She has so much taste that she wants to pass the next level, the Advanced Open Water, in stride.
She is on the expedition to Redang. On the beach, we take the pose together.
On the boat, which we share with another diving club, I meet a Frenchman Phuket, in Thailand, came to dive in Malaysia with a Parisian friend on vacation, of Vietnamese origin. Until their departure, two days later, we will have lunch and lunch regularly together, exchanging our respective impressions of Thailand and Malaysia.
We are all delighted with this excursion. Upon arrival at Perhentian Kecilwhile it's been sunny all day long, the rain is falling on us. We all pile up in the tiny protected area at the back. The shower is heavy, but fortunately short-lived.
In the evening, exhausted by these three successive dives, I sleep like a baby ... To return to plunge to jump from bed! No, frankly, I looked a little jaded, in the previous message, but there is really nothing! ! ! Life under the Malaysian coconut trees is very sweet indeed.
