Durian Fest at Balik Pulau, Penang

Jun 23, 10 at 12:58 am

I was in Penang for a short getaway last weekend for some good food and good company. One of the highlights from the trip was the durian excursion at Balik Pulau. In fact, if you have not heard about it, this is the place where you can get relatively good durian. Well, I shall leave the fact findings to my friends who hail from Penang as I’m going to talk about the ongoing Durian Fest happening right now at Balik Pulau.

You can feast on different varieties of durian at the makeshift stalls set up by the local council but of course you will have to pick your choice of durian.

We actually had hard time deciding but in the end we chose a Red Prawn and a Balik Pulau varieties. I can’t remember the price as I wasn’t the one who foot the bill.

There isn’t any durian buffet like what I had in SS2 earlier on but that did not deter people from flocking to this place for durian.
