  • Silkair gives extra 10kg baggage allowance (total 30kg) for dive gear to their dive destinations like manado and cebu. You can find the terms on their website. Good idea to print it out bcos not all the counter staff at the terminal will know this fact.

  • The trick is don't packed your gear in a dive bag that screams "I am a Scuba Diver", you know with those dive logos and what not. If you packed in an innocent looking bag, they would not know.


    Can't agree more  ;D

    But I still believe that its still luck that count most.... if the person at the counter is super 'on-the-ball'... or having a bad day.... too bad lor.  :'(
