We were told that there is nothing nice to eat in Koh Samui. Hen, who stayed in Chaweng, didn’t find any place that was tasty enough worth mentioning. In fact, he went to couple of bad restaurants.
However, Dr. Frogs was one of the places we had dinner and it was quite good. It is located next to Lad Koh View Point and it faces the sea. They claimed that they serves Italian cuisine with a full Thai menu. They also boosted to have the best pizza in town.
The interior of Dr. Frogs is mainly wood and the atmosphere was indeed very nice. The draw back of this place is the price. A single meal could costs up to RM80.
Since they boosted that they were voted to have the best pizza, we ordered their seafood marinara pizza. I also ordered a plate of carbonara. The dishes took a while to come but the wait was well worth it.
The pizza was fking awesome! It came with a thin crust and also big and fresh scallops . I wish I could remember how it tasted like but at the time I wrote this entry, I forgot how it tasted like. FML!!

Nevertheless, if you are in Koh Samui and have some money to spare, try out Dr Frogs @ Chaweng Noi.

Lad Koh Viewpoint, also known as “Zenith viewpoint” is located right at the Koh Samui ring road leaving Chaweng southbound in the direction of Lamai.
This place offers a splendid view over the whole Chaweng bay area. It is just a few blocks away from my hotel. Parking space is ample.
Drove my Jeep there
The place is nicely built with path towards the rocky sea shore. But if possible, avoid the place as it is infested with mosquitoes and also sand flies.

Can rock climb too!
There is actually nothing to do at this place other than taking a few nice photographs. But if you want to take some nice panoramic pictures, head to Lad Koh Viewpoint!
Ok, back to my Ang Thong National Marine Park, Koh Samui entries! This would also be my last entry on Ang Thong National Marine Park.
Koh Kua Talap was our last destination for the day. In Koh Kua Talap, we may choose to hang around the beach, explore a cave or hike up a hill which overlooks the entire island and its surroundings.
We opted for the hike up the hill. The hike up was fairly easy. Further, there were ropes to help us climb the hill. The hike is about half an hour upwards. It is highly recommended that shoes are worn during the hike. But I saw some guai lous going bare foot notwithstanding that there were red ants and spiky rocks everywhere.
At the entrance to the trails!
View from first observation deck
After going through some steep mud trails, we ended up one a rocky surface which lead us to the observation deck.
The view from the observation deck is absolutely breath taking!
Cannot go further up..
Small yellow dots are actually kayaks!
After snapping some pictures, we made our way down to chill at the beach.
This is the place where everyone can store their bags
After hanging out at the beach for an hour, we were ferried back to Koh Samui! Great place!
