Thailand broke the world record for the largest mass dive recently when 750 divers took part in an event
off the coast of Koh Tao, an event which the provincial authority hopes will put the southern island firmly
on the world diving map. The 750 divers had gathered from Thailand and around the world to participate
in the event, which marks the biggest mass dive on record, breaking the record previously achieved by
Australia two years ago when 590 divers gathered for a similar event.
