Eat Durian

Eat Durian

You could almost walk blindly down the streets of Bangkok and still be able to find this spikey, cantaloupe-sized fruit. Its pungent smell has it banned from almost every hotel and taxi, but the Thai people, who call durian the king of fruit, love its creamy texture. Just pinch your nose and take a bite—it’s a must-try in Bangkok!

Price: Around 150 Baht ($4.50).
