Sample Koh Chang's prized durian at the island's annual festival

The annual Festival of Fruits and Local Products of Ko Chang 2018 is scheduled to take place from April 27 to May 1 on Ko Chang in Thailand’s Eastern Province of Trat.

Ko Chang is Thailand’s second largest island after Phuket. Its plentiful land area and beautiful beaches make the island a popular destination for Thai and foreign tourists. As well as tourism and fishery, fruit farming is one of the island’s sustainable sources of income.

The Festival of Fruits and Local Products is being organised to promote Ko Chang’s famous durian which has its own unique salty taste unlike anywhere else. Known as ‘Ko Chang’s Durian’, the fruit contains a higher content of iodine-based substances, according to lab test results.

The five-day festival offers the opportunity for locals and visitors to savour the delicious Ko Chang Durian at very attractive prices. There will be a QR code for buyers to scan detailed information about the durian orchard. Many other fruits will also be on sale including rambutan, mangosteen, pomelo, coconut, as well as agricultural and seafood products.

The event takes place daily from 09.00 – 16.00 hrs.
