Durian
The streets of Bangkok offer a rich variety of fruits, with the durian occupying a special place. The durian is shaped like a rugby ball that has seen better days, with its thick green rind covered with sharp spines hiding its creamy yellow flesh. Locals call it the “king of fruits,” and for good reason, because it contains a whole host of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.

There is one drawback: the smell. It is so acrid, pungent, and stinky that it can be used to scare away enemies and other evildoers. It is forbidden to bring durian into hotels, shopping malls, airplanes, and other crowded places. This fruit can only be tasted in Southeast Asia because of its precociousness and short shelf life.
