Penang, Malaysia, 1 April, 2015 – The Durian Package is back! Love it or loathe it, the durian season has started. Aficionados of the thorny fruit can make a beeline for the pungent wonder at “all you can eat” durian sessions at Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa, Penang and the adjacent Golden Sands Resort, Penang. The fruit – native to Balik Pulau, the rural heartland of Penang – is part of an accommodation offer available at the resorts from 1 June to 30 September 2015.
With the Durian Package, guests can enjoy popular varieties of durian such as the Red Prawn, Hor Lor, Kung Poh, Ang Bak and Musang King at an “all you can eat” session at either of Shangri-La’s Penang resorts.
“The quality of Penang durians are second to none and tourists have been known to fly in from Hong Kong, China and Japan just to eat Penang durians,” said Suleiman Tunku Abdul Rahman, director of communications. “This year, our chefs have the mission of sourcing for the best durians from our preferred durian supplier based in Balik Pulau. They will use their astute sense of smell and taste to select the best durians for our guests,” Suleiman added.
