    Thanks, Robert for all the valuable info - nobody can possibly get there without instructions. I also checked up on how to get to there.In my gap year I am going to take a Nepenthes trip, travelling first from Kuching (Malesiana) then up the kalimantan border and ending up in KK w/ my relatives (is that the right direction?). [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Not confirmed yet, but somethin' like that.

    PAK, most westerners are too scared of the smell of durian to get close enough to try it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] Weird, I being born in America am the only one (probably in asia) that doesn't like durian, the other members have to fight the temptation of stuffing their faces w/ as much as possible anytime they spot a roadside stall...

    The road to Bau ---> Serikin branch out at kota sentosa ( 20 mins drive from Kuching ),so inorder to travel to KK one have to travel back to kota sentosa and take the main trunk road to KK,passing through many small town,villages, and jungles ... jungles [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] .Nice for a change for city dwellers::

    I would LOVE the opportunity to pass through many small towns, villages and jungles. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] I'm an outdoors person myself although technically I live "in the city." But I'm only a few miles away from rolling hills, woods, lakes, farms, and fields. I grew up running amuk in the woods. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    PAK, never seen a Durian in the states but Montana isnt really the best place to find one. oddly enough i saw some in a regular supermarket in Calgary, Alberta about 2 years ago. thought about getting one to try but for one reason or another didnt do it. probably cause i was staying in a hotel and didnt want to get kicked out...............

    I've heard every now and then that a store has them but I've never seen one. I am SO curious! Surely the smell can't be THAT bad if they taste so good. I heard the consistency is like custard...sort of.

    Those things do not taste good. It's an aquired taste, if you can get past the smell which actualy accounts for more of what you taste than what your taste buds detect.

    well,in my family not everyone like durians.My brother is a step further -he dislikes eggs too [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] . Generally durians were much love by every nationality here.There were some expatriates whom i saw sitting by roadside stall holding and eating durians and at the same time discussing the flavors.They have so much fun.

    we have many different species of durians.I prefered wild durians,have thin flesh but no pungent smell,more creamy.It has no demand such that no body will pick it for sale.When we go jungle trekking we would pick up any we come across [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
