We can travel for durian again… let’s celebrate!
In conjunction with the Keningau Durian Festival, we are celebrating our ability to be durian tourists in Sabah with this 8-day quest for all kinds of durians and all kinds of new friends.
From the bright Barbie-pink of Tenom Beauty and it’s parent, the sticky savory red-fleshed Durio graveolens, to its cousin, the surprisingly peanut-butter-cup sweet orange Durio graveolens with all its succulent hybrids, to the coconut-cappucino plump pods of Durio oxleyanus, to the super soft and intoxicating folds of Tembaga and bitter Musang King, we will try as many kinds and species of durian as possible in this 8-day durian tour that integrates wanton durian feasting with connecting to local ecosystems and cultures.
This 8-day durian tour will travel from the high-mountains to the valleys to the flat coastal plains, eating durian all the way.
Our group is limited to only 8 durian lovers.
Pre-requisite of travel: You must not dislike durian odor or walking.
