As someone who is from the west, I’ve always noticed just how expensive some tropical fruits can be. Take mangos for example, in England, I always remember paying nearly a pound each for them. I didn’t even need to join a Vietnam tour to realise the price here is much more appealing, the same pound will purchase you a kilo of mangos here. Now one of the many exciting aspects about coming here and probably the most obvious, is the price of beer. With just a tener, you could afford to get the Salvation Army on a merry level, therefore things like fruit aren’t too high on the priorities of most tourists or travellers. A Vietnam Holiday Package could potentially take you all over the country and some of the delightful flavours available is astounding. Personally, I have always loved mangos, however since I landed in Vietnam, my taste buds have been shocked, surprised and impressed with a variety of fruits I have never seen or even heard of.

One of the most fascinating fruits which is abundantly available in Vietnam is the Durian, an intriguing local treat which could easily knock a boxer unconscious if propelled directly at his head. This fruit is more than twice the size of a coconut and is most aptly characterised by its spiky shell. The interior is soft creamy coloured, boasting a flavour which has always divided the realm of cuisine, some people love it, some hate it. It’s flavour could be described as a quirky combination of nectar and butter, however one of the most noticeable aspects of the durian is the fragrance, again a love/hate thing.
During Holidays in Vietnam, you may get the opportunity to visit some of the ethnic villages and if so, you’re in for a real treat. The Vietnamese are generally quite healthy people and feast on a kaleidoscope of delicious fruits and vegetables. Before I came here and embarked on a Vietnam Holiday Package, I’d never set sight on the Jackfruit before. This interesting number looks similar to the Durian on the outside, however is slightly less spiky and intimidating. Now personally I’m not a big fan of the durian, however the jackfruit is incredible in my opinion. The first time I tried it, my segments had dried out a little, which simply meant that I didn’t need to wipe my hands afterwards. It tasted just as delicious even though the moisture had evaporated and is now one of my favourite fruits. I’m not really sure how to describe the flavour, but all can certainly say that it’s a very rich fruit, too much would probably provoke feelings of sickness. The texture is similar to a mango, except it’s a little more chewy.
If I’ve managed to convince you to embark on a Vietnam Tours of fruit, you may also love the Watermelon, Dragonfruit, Mangostreen, Rambutans and Papaya. All of them are magnificent in their own way and to boot, they are all of course very healthy additions to your diet.
