Your day tour starts at the Lavender MRT station in Singapore, where you'll be picked up and depart for Malaysia in the early morning. Learn more than you ever thought there was to known about durian and its varieties, a fruit rich in nutrients that's thought to support several areas of physical health.
The types of durian you'll sample depend on the time of year of your tour, but possible varieties include the Black Thorn durian with dark yellow flesh and taste that starts sweet and ends slightly bitter; the Musang King with golden, thick flesh that makes it a highly sought-after variety; the D24 with creamy, bitter flesh; the Red Prawn with a sticky, red-orange flesh; and the Green Bamboo with a green tinge. Learn how to spot different types just by looking at them, how to open them, how to eat the flesh, and what to do after eating one.
When your durian lesson is over, head to the Johor Premium Outlet for shopping. When you get hungry for dinner, enjoy a seafood meal to experience a Johor Bahru specialty—many Singapore locals cross the border just for a seafood meal.
Your day tour ends with transport back to the Lavender MRT Station in Singapore in the late evening.
