Go Catch Them All
From the lowlands to the highlands, let’s eat all the durians together!
This 11-day durian tour *should* hit ALL THE WILD DURIANS. From the beautiful red-shelled Durio dulcis to red-fleshed Durio graveolens variety Otak Udang Galah, to the yellow and orange Suluks and Surut hybrids, Durio oxelyanus, Durio kutejensis AND Durian kura kura, this is a one-hit Durian extravaganza.
Focused on 5 different regions of Borneo, each which its own geography, culture, people and durians, this durian tour is also sure to make you appreciate the diversity of flavors, fruits, languages, peoples, and lifestyles all co-existing in Borneo.
Beginning on the beaches of Miri, we’ll explore jungles of Brunei before finishing in the cool highlands above Lawas.
We’ll return to Miri by small plane for gorgeous scenic views of the twisting river systems of Borneo.
Our group is limited to only 8 durian lovers.
Pre-requisite of travel: You must not dislike durian odor or walking.
