I dived in Layang Layang about three years ago... and it remains my all time favourite diving place!  Perhaps I was lucky with close encounters with lone Hammerheads and the Hammerhead school on our very last day... but I found it the most thrilling diving I have ever done!!  Not only that, but the diversity of what we saw, 100% coral coverage, a House Manta Ray, Dolphins and even some Nudibranchs! 

Living in Kota Kinabalu, I have dived Sipadan many times and am very fond of it... but my memories of some awesome dives at Layang Layang keep that experience on top of my list!

Happy Diving!

Dayang is popular coz it's cheap, very diveable, alot of stuff to see.. And is relatively near. Most dive sites are also within mins from resort jetty. Down side for dayang, resort is basic.. No hot water shower and some may not like the 4 hr boat ride. But all these, I can live with, I love this place and dive there several times a year. :)
So they call it a 'FACT' coz someone made some statements on a 'FACT SHEET'? hummm...

I enjoyed Renggis in Tioman this week with some really big black tips although no sign of the whale shark that someone claims to have seen there!

Everyone raves about Sipidan so it is next on my list and I guess Dayang has to be the one after that.

Barracuda Point in Sipadan is in the TOP 10 Dive Sites in Asia!
http://divezone.net/best-dive-sites.htm

So it seems to be a really good diving destination!!! But People told me, that you need to book your permit 6 months in advance?! Is that true?  >:(

I have dived in the Perhentians, it was OK but not amazing but the Island is really beautiful!  ;D

you don't need to book 6 months advance, but its good to book early, since sabah park only gives out 120 permits per day to dive at sipadan, alternatively, go for the dive centre that has more permits,to have higher chance to dive in Sipadan. :)

its amazing experience, i actually requested to dive 2 times in baraccuda point rather than exploring more sites~ :)
Diving is like passion, deep and sensational, and sometimes dangerous.

Taking a break from diving. Boohoo~
