Durian was in full force in Bali last year while I was there from November - January.

Wow Ryno really? I'm dying to get to Bali. This year Philippines is a strong possibility.
Marianna may be worth starting a discussion for that one. I haven't worked over there so not sure. I fund it through my mentoring, we really live pretty cheaply. No 5 star hotels :D

I heard that Bali's peak durian season is December!

How do you all fund your stays? What kind of work is available in Thailand, specifically Koh Samui? Do you need work visas etc?
I am seriously considering a few months over there...

Hey Karmyn,

Here are a few of the peak season periods I know of (anyone please correct me if I'm wrong):

- Most of Thailand peaks in April - June
- Bali is February - March
- Mainland Malaysia (and Penang) is mid-June
- Singapore should also be mid-June (most of the durian comes from Malaysia)
- Mindinao, Philippines is August-November
- I think Hawaii is September

A few notable absentees are Borneo, Sri Lanka and Sumatra

I need to know when durian season PEAKS in each country in SE Asia that grows it.

Thank you! :)

I am teaching English in Bangkok for the next year and I hope to travel around during my vacation time doing various volunteer work. :)
Comment by ViNiki on October 18, 2010 at 4:01am
is everyone just traveling/vacationing or is anyone doing any sort of work/volunteer type thing? I'd love to go to se asia (or any cheap tropical place for that matter) for at least 3-6 months this year to live and do some sort of work (i'm not a vagabonding/nomadic type, i need consistency/stability). does anyone have any suggestions/experience?

I should be in Mindinao, Philippines from the first wk in November to mid-December
