I want to share an experience of eating an exotic fruit when I was traveling in Thailand in 2015. My parents took me there for a vacation.
I clearly remember it was in an orchard that I ate the most stinky tropical fruit in most Chinese people’s mind, which is durian. The place was somewhere between Bangkok and Pattaya. This article is from Laokaoya website. It took us around two bus hours to get there. After taking a walk around the yard to learn something about those fruit plants, we were led by the tour guide to a large round table where lots of unfamiliar fruits were placed.
Among all those exotic treats, the durian was definitely the most memorable one. You know, I had long heard about the complaint of its stink but hadn’t really taken a tiny bit of it. So, that’s the perfect timing to try it.
To be honest, it smells indeed bad, but way better than the one I experienced while passing the street market in China. When I take the first bite, I was actually mentally prepared. So, it wasn’t as bad as I expected. Actually, the taste was rather good, which made me wonder why people always complain about its taste and smell? Or, could it be that those durians they ate were not authentic? I have no idea.
Well, If I had a chance to visit there again, I think I wouldn’t bother having more!
