Durian in Bangkok

hyacinthgirl | Dec 14, 2010 07:31 AM

In January, I'm travelling to Bangkok, which will be my first ever trip to SE Asia.
Having heard so much about it, I'm very excited (and nervous and wary and fascinated...) to try durian. However, from what I've read, you can't take it on any public transportation, you can't take it in most hotels....
So, my question is, HOW do I try it?
Do I just need to find a market, buy it and eat it right there? And if so, is it carried in most markets or only specialty places?
Does anyone cook with durian? Are there any restaurants in which I could try it?
Help, help, help!
And thank you!
