I didn't expect to find durian on Koh Kret, a small island carved into the river in Nonthaburi, the province famous for the most expensive durians in the world.
A deluge at the end of 2011 completely submerged the island and all low-lying areas around, drowning the majority of the famous durian orchards in the most dramatic flood Bangkok had seen in over 50 years. By the photos, it looked like Noah's Ark would have been handy.
But after a friend told me it was the last place in Bangkok without any roads and was a really lovely place, I went. Not for durian, just for fun.
And you know what I found? Yup.
