DURIAN FEST & FRUIT BUFFET in Bangkok! – Hot Thai Kitchen

Posted: Friday, June 16, 2017

Here’s a little souvenir from my latest trip to Bangkok! Join me and my brother Eddy (the cameraman) in this durian and fruit festival as I explore the “durian market” and then stuff myself silly at the fruit buffet with piles of durian, mangosteens, rambutans, mango and more!

End of May-June is the peak of fruit season! So naturally, during this time you will find many fruit festivals around town (usually held at shopping malls), and fruit buffet is starting to become a thing! So I went to the biggest one that I know of which was held at Central World.

WANT TO GO NEXT YEAR? It costs 500 baht per person ($15 USD) for a 1.5 hour session, but this would cost less at smaller malls (but fruit selection may not be as good). This is not cheap in Thai money, but I think it is worth it if you’re traveling and want to experience all the delicious Thai fruits conveniently in one place. However, if you live in Thailand or if you’re in Thailand for long time, I do not think it is worth the price as you can easily buy these fruits and eat them at your own pace for much cheaper. It’s also better to not be so ridiculously full at the end!
