The recent travel restrictions out of China have resulted in a significant decrease in Chinese tourists visiting the country.
This has led to a significant drop in Chinese tourist spending, impacting many tourist-related industries — Durian sales being one of them..
According to a report by Malay Mail, the price of Malaysian durians have fallen significantly in the past two weeks due to the decrease in demand by Chinese tourists.
Some shops have even reduced the price to as low as 50% of the market price.
Looks like this might be a good opportunity for locals to enjoy better prices for the fruit now!
