Travel Malaysia - Eating Durian In Penang

MALAYSIA | Wednesday, 28 November 2012 | Views [13333]

Hanna Butler, the winner of World Nomads 2012 Travel Writing Scholarship, travelled to Southeast Asia to immerse herself in the local culture and write about her experiences. 

In Penang, Malaysia, Hanna decides to seek out the exotic and polarising fruit known as Durian - and finds herself at one of the best farms of the fruit in all of Penang. She is fascinated by the culture and obsession surrounding the pungent fruit, and finally takes the plunge to see what all the fuss is about.
