: are diving sites in Malaysia open in winter? < p> saw the introduction of heat wave island and dioman island on LP, all mentioned the winter (november-march), most hotels and dive shops are closed, and shibatan does not have this hint. Can it be understood that the south China sea is surrounded by an inhospitable winter, while on the other side, such as sabah, the Philippines, and Thailand, there is no monsoon? Do you have any idea? I’m going to study OW+AOW over Christmas.
