The Durian Tourist’s Guide to Penang is a comprehensive guide to the durians and durian plantations in Penang. Amazingly, it is not the work of a local durian enthusiast, but a young American girl. If you had expect every Westerner to run away at the aroma of durian, well, not anymore. But Lindsay Gasik is no average Western. Not only has she developed an appreciation for durians, she has also travelled all over Asia to seek out durians where they grow naturally. And she’s not alone. Lindsay is one among a growing throng of Westerners calling themselves durian lovers.
