Health benefits of tropical fruit
 

A trip to Thailand & Malaysia is not complete without indulging in culinary adventures as well as tasting some exotic tropical fruits. The warm and humid weather is ideal for large varieties of tropical and citrus fruit that are not found in many places in the world.

Most varieties of tropical fruit help hydrate and enable the body to fight heat and humidity. Tropical fruits are natural detox and help clean the toxins from the body. A regular intake of small servings of fruit is essential to stay healthy and hydrated in the hot and humid atmosphere of the tropics. 


I travel quite frequently to the tropics. Living in Australia, I have little tolerance for humidity and heat. The first thing I do after settling in the hotel is to stock up on tropical fruit. Most supermarkets carry good quality seasonal fruit which is cut and packed for easy consumption. I have developed a romance for juicy mangosteens, guava, jackfruit, pineapples, lychees, and Durian.

Hotels across Malaysia do not allow durians to be taken to the rooms and impose a fine of over RM 200. The smell of this amazing fruit is hard to take but the taste is impossible to forget.

Singaporeans visit Malaysia in peak Durian season to enjoy this exotic fruit which is very common in Malaysia. Here is my list of some lovely tropical fruit along with the health benefits.
