The Bentong Durian Shop, Your All Year Durian Fix

Bentong is perhaps the most famous place for durian in Malaysia after Penang Island. It’s just an hour’s drive over the mountain range from big-city KL, yet feels like a small, cozy, walk-able little town. The streets are arranged in square blocks of tidy Chinese shop houses dating from the early 1900’s, kept tidy with fresh paint and delightfully surprising murals and decorations.
