Durian and Fruit Festival
1 - 30 June 2010
11am - 6pm daily
Anjung Indah, Balik Pulau
We went to the Durian and Fruit festival last Saturday as planned. Arrived at Anjung Indah around 1pm, it was not many people there then. After taking some snaps and relaxing with great view, we had durian at the table provided by stall. Some people had durian under the trees with the sea view, but with little boys around we could not do that. When we were about to leave, many people there and the car park was full.
There were many types of durian to choose from, either 3 for RM10 or 3 for RM50 all up to you! I know very little about durian, so asked seller to get us a creamy and not-so-bitter type. RM18 for the durian, just nice for two and it was very good. Other than durian, there were also local fruits available such as buah salak (snake fruit) and rambutan. I tasted buah salak for the first time in my life, kinda sweet and sour taste.
The rambutan was very fresh as you can see, and it was selling at RM8 per bunch. Loose ones were selling at 3kgs for RM10. Actually there were many durian stalls along the road in Balik Pulau. After we left Anjung Indah, we drove around and found many durian stalls. I think it is not necessary go to to festival site, just drive around (from Relau to Balik Pulau direction) and stop at any stall for a feast.
