Títol : Palau - Jellyfish Lake

Descripció : On my latest freediving trip, I visited the Jellyfish lake in Palau. Wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jellyfish_Lake ✓ Subscribe: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=Born2Die83 ✓ Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/freediverhd ✓ My Channel :http://www.youtube.com/user/Born2Die83 I has such bad visibility on this trip to Palau, the ocean water was like mud... so all I got was this video in the Lake. Koror was a great little town to explore. The Palauans were such friendly people. They would always say hello, wave from there doorsteps as I walked past, stop their cars to I could cross the road, always give a wave or acknowledgement when walking past. My only criticism of this Palau is that the government has put in a whole bunch of taxes, permits, charges etc - which have made Palau ridiculously expensive. Paying for a good or service is one thing. Some of the charges were Green Tax ($30), Departure tax ($20), Rock Island Permit($50), Peleliu Permit($25), Jelly fish permit($100). All of those charges get you NOTHING - to have a jelly fish permit just means you are allowed enter the lake area - you pay this ON TOP of the cost to of the tour to the lake. For example, a tour to jellyfish lake would cost you about $100 USD for the tour + 100USD for the permit - so its $200 minimum for a 20 minute swim in this lake. The same goes for the Rock Island Permit ($50) - that cost doesn't include anything, no diving, no tours, nothing. Its just a tax for the sake of having a tax - if you want to go diving you have to pay for a tour separately, 2 dives with gear will cost you around $150 USD + the permit. To further rub salt in the wound, when you leave -The compulsory, nicely worded, 'Green Tax' is a tax for nothing - you get nothing in return, not even a permit, nothing - its just a tax you need to pay in order to leave Palau, and its on top of the departure tax (not the departure tax included in your air ticket.... so in total you would need to pay $50 USD to leave Palau. I will travel to Palau one more time... but after that I don't think I'll be back - its a beautiful place, but the taxes left a sour taste in my mouth. To add insult to injury the visibility was less then 3m in the ocean... so I got taxed like crazy and had a bad diving holiday. FIngers crossed for better luck in the future. Regards, Freediver HD
