Swimming with Whale Sharks!

A travel blog entry by sellers2013-14

... all started only 16 years ago, when the region decided to protect the whale sharks and develop a tourist industry around them. The pricing is reasonable for a three hour boat ride (6 passengers max) to try to find these enormous fish — only $55/person.

Prostitution is a big problem ...

Of the 3 times I got into the water everyone I would be wondering where it was and then everytime it would appear face on. The final time I literally had to swim up to avoid kicking it in the face.
