About Bay of Bangkok
The Bay of Bangkok, also known as the Bight of Bangkok, is the northernmost part of the Gulf of Thailand, roughly extending from Hua Hin to the west and Sattahip to the east. Three of the major rivers of central Thailand empty into the bay: the Chao Phraya and its distributary Tha Chin, the Mae Klong and the Bang Pa Kong River. There are some interesting islands off the eastern shores of the bay, like Ko Sichang, Ko Lan and Ko Phai.
The best dive sites of the Bay of Bangkok are HTMS Chang Shipwreck, HTMS Kud, Hardeep Wreck, Bremen wreck, Khram Wreck, North Rock (Koh Rin), Chumpon Pinnacle, Koh Man Wichai and with an amazing marine life. Khram Wreck is another dive site for experienced divers (maximum depth is 30m/98ft). The ship was sunk on 30 January, 2003 to create an artificial reef. Soft corals generously covering the wreck are spectacular. Divers have a chance to swim through the wreck and explore its compartments including instrument gauges, lockers, desks, toilets and showers, infirmary, mess room, kitchen, boilers and store rooms. It is a good site for macro photographers. Koh Man Winchai consists of several smaller dives. There is a wall encrusted with corals just after the entry where divers can explore numerous cracks, crevices and interesting rock formations. This is a boat dive which is great for novice divers.
