Helpful answers to commonly asked questions about accommodation in Phuket
Phuket is actually quiet a large island, with over 2,000 licensed hotels around the island. Some areas in Phuket are actually well over an hour away from our Chalong training centre and the main pier where all the dive boats depart from.

Q: Where is the best place to stay when doing my IDC?
A: The best place to stay for your IDC is close to where you will be doing the bulk of your work! In this case that is Chalong, Pier Road, where our Chalong office is located. This is where you will do all your classroom work and where you will store equipment. This is also where our driver leaves from for beach diving and pool training activities.
If you are planning on staying elsewhere you most likely need to organize your own transport to and from the classroom each day and possibly to other facilities depending on the availability of our driver.
