Best diving for Open Water and advanced divers?

We are travelling to Malaysia in August this year. 2 of us will be doing our open water, plus two are advanced divers. Considering Sipidan probably too advanced to really be enjoyed by beginners, we were considering Perhenthian islands.

Have been before and loved it, however few people have suggested that a lot of the coral is dead now and that the diving is not as good as it used to be.

Can anybody with recent experiences advise!

Its not true at all,therefore you must dive at Perhentian Island then you know about coral,fish ,turtle and other marines life there.

I`m certified advance Open Water PADI,most of my dive recommended is Tokong Laut , Sugar Wreck ,Batu Layar ,,Turtle Bay and other places..

Spend my time with Universal Divers and Seahorse Divers...highly recommended based on my experience .

Malaysia diving are the best site and cheapest at Asia...
