Hi..I'm from Germany and might be able to help your cousin. The best Spot by far in asian/mediterranean is Egypt. Don't go to Hurgarda or Sham el Sheik. Too many divers with damages accordingly. Take a Dive Safarie to the south. You will get some of the most spectacular Dives in the world. Hammer Sharks Whale Sharks lot of other sharks. The great thing is you have big fish as well as beautiful Coralls.
