Ko Muk is the only other island we visited in Thailand, besides Koh Tao. We wanted to escape the over-visited islands like Phi Phi, Phuket, or Koh Phangan. Although the dining options on this island were very limited, compared with Koh Tao, I found refuge in the BBQ at Rubbertree Resort. Costing only 169Baht, this delicious feast was a steal. With the best chicken I’ve ever had, Roasted Corn, Kabob, a Baked Potato and Pork, I was in food heaven; and Julian’s food was at least as good. He had the Cashew Pineapple Baked Rice, which came inside a half a pineapple. The baked pineapple was so succulent, and combined with the crunchiness of the cashew, it was just wonderful.
I would say that the Muesli breakfast, available all over Thailand, was disappointing compared to the Khao San Road Muesli we were used to, but if you’re craving this breakfast, then Sawadee’s has a decently priced breakfast located on the beach. As I said in my other post, we loved the Masaman Curry at Charlie’s as well.
Which is your favorite island in Thailand? Would you travel to Ko Muk just to visit the Emerald Cave?

Charlie’s is the most famous resort on Ko Muk. It’s pretty run-down, as far as resorts go, but was still too expensive for our budget. Its bungaloos are located on the main beach, which it shares with Sawadees Hotel. Still, we enjoyed eating here because the restaurant has an excellent view, and at night, they move the chairs onto the beach and have grilled fresh seafood. Though I enjoyed the BBQ more at the Rubber Tree Resort, Charlie’s did have the best Masaman Curry on the island, and reasonably priced. After three weeks of Pad Thai, I was excited for the BLT on a Toasted Baguette available here, which didn’t disappoint (though the bread is certainly not toasted). The Banana Fritters were a great dessert as well.
