    Going to Amed for freediving training

    March 20, 2020 in Hong Kong ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    With 10 days left of the holiday we decided to do 3 days of diving / free diving and 7 days of surfing.
    Took us ages to figure out which area to go to for the best free diving, best courses, location etc.
    Eventually settled on Amed. Near to (but far enough away from) an active volcano.
    After much faff of finding a taxi, we selected a free dive course to do and got them to arrange a driver to pick us up.
    The driver told us all about the upcoming silent festival where the whole island shuts down and no one is allowed on the streets. (Well I guess that is one day of surfing out the window already).
    Arrived at our lovely hotel, got upgraded to a nice big room over looking the pool and the sea. All for only 17 quid a night. We were the only people in the restaurant with a meal costing £2.50. Bargain.
