Durian Tourism is becoming a bit of a ‘thing’ with lovers of the thorny fruit willing to travel far for the best. Many people consider those grown around the town of Balik Pulau in Penang to be the best of the crop. Balik Pulau is a small town in the south west of Penang Island. It’s a quiet rural area famous for its durians and other tropical fruits.
