Durian Burung anyone?

The highway bus Durian Burung in Malaysia

The Durian Burung Executive Coach

In case you were wondering what lovely delicious morsel a durian burung is, well it isn’t. Not what you’re thinking anyway, that it might be a little durian roll or even a durian dumpling. No, durian burung is translated as “durian bird” and it is the name of what seems to be a fairly successful a bus company (judging from the number plying the highways). It would be really funny if this bus served only durians for the meals and if everyone on it was a durian lover or if it was solely for the purpose of going from one durian plantation to another….(think of the smell!)

Anyway, I was so amused by the name of the bus that I hopped out of the car and managed to take a photo of the bus before it went driving off. The bus had stopped to let off a lady, yes just one, and it left without her. I suppose she must either live nearby and a relative must be coming to get her from the rest stop or that she works there and this would be a bus to work (approx 8pm). Its funny how in Malaysia, rest stops can now also be bus stops too.

We’ve been nurturing a durian craving which we hope to satisfy perhaps this evening….

  1. The name Durian Burung comes from Kampung Durian Burung, located in Padang Terap District in Kedah near the Malaysia,Thai Border.

    • Thank you!

      When I did a search on google maps, I found another proposition, type in “Jalan Durian Burung, 20050 Kuala Terengganu, Terengganu”

      So… which is the one?
