Calling all durian lovers, make your way up the “shan” (mountain) this long National Day weekend for a Mao Shan Wang durian experience!
From the Pahang highlands to the top of Mount Faber, One Faber Group presents the first-ever “Mao” Faber Durian Night during the long weekend. Held on 10 August 2019 (6pm to 10pm), Faber Deck, an alfresco deck on Mount Faber’s picturesque hilltop, will be transformed into a durian wonderland, complete with premium-grade quality Mao Shan Wang durians from Pahang, durian-themed interactive stage games, and local delicacies.
One of the many exciting activities in celebration of the Singapore Cable Car’s 45th anniversary, the “Mao” Faber Durian Night is not-to-be-missed for all durian lovers. Pahang Mao Shan Wang durians are exceptionally sought after and Spikes of Love, a community of durian aficionados led by durian expert Collin Chee, has chosen the best for the event. The team will also be there to educate guests on the different varietals, provide tips on how to select the best Mao Shan Wang durians, and more!
Mr Buhdy Bok, Managing Director, Mount Faber Leisure Group, says, “This is our first ever Durian Night to celebrate this King of Fruits. There is no better place to enjoy durians than under the night sky, with trees allaround, and a fantastic view of Singapore’s southern waterfront. We are constantly looking for new experiences to bring people to Mount Faber and to the Singapore Cable Car, especially since it’s the latter’s 45th Anniversary. We hope that Singaporeans will join us on top of the hill for “Mao” Faber Durian Night!”
Pahang Mao Shan Wang durians are #WorthTheWait Mao Shan Wang durians from Pahang are prized for its thick yellow flesh and bittersweet creamy taste. Known as the durian belt of Malaysia, Pahang durians are larger with greater texture and taste. Only top-tier durians from Pahang will be available at “Mao” Faber Durian Night so rest assured, there will be quality durians at this durian party!
