Enjoy more than 20 types of addictively delicious durians, including the famous Musang King, Red Prawn, Black Thorn, Ganjaa, HorLor and more.

Fresh durians are carefully picked from the durian trees that age up to a hundred years old in their orchard located uphill before transporting to their store nearby for customers to enjoy a hassle-free durian experience!
Shan Cheng Durian Penang implements a unique farm management method that incorporates IoT (Internet of things), in order to help with customising nutrients and water for each durian tree.
