DURIAN: "Durian, Green Stinky Fruit" Top 5 Page for this destination Pangandaran Shopping Tip by RoyJava

Pangandaran Shopping: 7 reviews and 7 photos

by RoyJava

The durian fruit comes from the durian tree, found in the jungle rainforest (Malaysia, Thailand & Indonesia). I love the brown to green fruit, always taking care of the strong sharp thorns. Especially when split (mostly 5 parts) and watching the creamy, yellow pulp. I know a lot of people dislike the smell and overpowering aroma, making the durian an infamous fruit of the tropics ...

See the best Fruit-lover ever!

What to buy: It's forbidden to bring the durian into hotels and public transportation (see Singapore) and the cry "Tastes like heaven, smells like hell!" got famous for it.

Also in Pangandaran I was lucky to get durian, where you could eat this remarkable fruit undisturbed on the terrace of our accommodation ... and sooo cheap ...

What to pay: You have to tawar, ie. bargain, offering one third of the offered price. So you can pay 1000 Rp. or 2000 Rp. Depends ...

Address: Street-stalls along the road, Pangandaran
Directions: Street area
Theme: Food and Drink
