Hi Travel Buddies,
We went to Desaru for a short weekend getaway last week. Our first stop was at the Desaru Fruit Farm. This fruit farm won the Best Agro Tourism Site in Malaysia in 2006. The entire fruit farm is about 100 acres of tropical fruit land. Entrance fees is RM20 per person, you get a guide to bring you around and you can bring back a small box of fruit platter at the end of the tour.
From passion fruits, dragon fruits to durian flowers, banana flowers, we were introduced to a number of interesting sights of many different fruits and fruits flowers. There is a small fish pond, bee aviary, mini zoo and you can even find crocodile, monkey and ostrich in the farm! At the end of the tour, we were given some ‘sales talk’ and tasting of their honey products, like royal jelly. But we were glad that they were not pushy and no hard selling. Overall, we find the tour is educational and interesting to both adults and kids. 🙂
