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!
