November SCUBA certfication location recommmendation

I have two weeks remaining in Thailand and am considering where to get certified. I loved Ko Phi Ph in general and did my first discovery dive there last year. Would you recommend the Ko Tao newbie mecca or return to Phi Phi? I'm concerned about the weather this time of year in ko tao but I don't need perfect sunny weather every day either. I'm thirty eight, male, traveling solo, and enjoy cocktails in the evenings.

Thank you in advance.

Hi

As the above poster states it's monsoon season in November on the east coast. The worst month of monsoon season is November and whilst it maybe sunny and pleasant at times the diving conditions are often poor. In fact a lot of the dive schools close in November (their only break in the year). I'd say if you enjoyed Phi Phi then you'll be best going there.

Safe and happy travels
