There are plenty of “seasons” in Singapore and one that most locals would always look forward to has to be the durian season.

So, whether you are a big fan of the popular Mao Shan Wang or others like Black Thorn and D24, here are the Top 10 Places For Durian in Singapore!
1) The Durian Story
Jonathan, who founded The Durian Story, understands the common frustration regarding the exorbitant pricing and erratic quality when comes to purchasing durians.

Here, you can find plenty of the best durian cultivars ranging from Mao Shan Wang to Black Gold, Red Prawn and D24, depending on seasonal availability.
