If you come to Southeast Asia countries (ASEAN) in May – August, you may see a fruit with spiky needles on the crust around ASEAN. Especially, Bangkok. At Central World, pavements, Yaowarat road, Chaloen krung, you may see this!!
Not only spiky needles around crust, there are too strong smell from this fruit! Some people say this smell like vomit! But someone guarantee deliciousness from this fruit when you bite and swallow yellow meat.
This fruit called “Durian”.
Durian is the king of fruit, but damned price
Do you know? Durian price is really insane! A piece of durian is approximately 150 Baht ($5). If you buy 2 pieces of durian, you can buy Counter Strike Global Offensive game exactly.
Actually, durian price isn’t too expensive. But Chinese trader import durians from Thailand to sell in China mainland. Chinese botanist ever try to plant durian in Southen China, but look like planting doesn’t work well. Deliciousness from durian that planted in Southern China isn’t good as durians from Thailand, and look like many Chinese love durian too much. But Chinese people from mainland have more than 1 billion! So demand of durian is too much than durian supply from Thailand, so Thai people increase price together.

Because durian is the strongest smell fruit in the world, so some hotels or transportation don’t allow anyone who bring durian openly.
