One of the most famous fruits in Thailand is the Durian. It is widely known as the "king of fruit" and you will either love it or hate it. It is a large fruit with a spiky casing which could so easily be used as a lethal weapon. However, it is the smell which some people say is more dangerous. For more pleasant aroma is the fried durian.

The Durian is sliced thinly like potato chips (crisps) and then either fried or roasted or even both. The small bag of fried durian costs 100 baht. Rayong province produces the majority of the durians in the country. If you don't fancy eating the smelly fruit then try this fried version. It is very addictive, so one packet won't be enough!
