Marcozuf>> talk about said activities with south asia, will recommend you India OR Maldives. Better if you can put this query to said countries and for sure destination expert will furnish.

I don't know about South Asia for diving with the Whale Shark, but right off Isla Mujeres, Mexico is famous for the Whale Sharks

Bali, Indonesia

whalesharks: head to philippines (donsol)

manta rays: good spots of Bali (manta corner near nusa lembongan) but also throughout Indonesia ... esp. raja ampat (over on western side near papua)

i had a manta literally crusinng forward and backwards over my head ... site called 'manta sandy'

(take a liveaboard trip to raja ampat for best chance to see remote sites and therefore higher chance of pelagic action)

good luck!

Agreed Nusa Lembongan off Bali is a great place - we went there in July and saw heaps of Manta Rays and a sun fish - there's also reef sharks but we missed them the day we went out.

I'm now researching my next trip and the Philippines has everything! Donsol for guaranteed Whale shark sightings & manta rays, Bohol for Hammerhead sharks and thresher sharks. & devil rays... i can't wait to go!

A little further south, visit world renowed Ningaloo Reef, Australia for whalesharks.

I am currently in Haa Alif atoll Maldives, this mornings dive we had 20 mobula Rays, 15 or so Manta's within 2 or 3 meteres of us, turtles, Eagle Rays and loads of macro stuff.

I have previously dived in Thailand and The Red Sea and there is NO comparison :-)
