A Muslim boy holds a durian, a local fruit, in a market in the southern Thailand province of Yala August 18, 2005. Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra took his second trip in a week to the restive Muslim south on Thursday as his government struggles to get to grips with separatist violence that has killed more than 800 people. Accompanied by economic and security advisers, Thaksin hopes to allay the fears of businessmen in the Muslim majority region, where threats by militants to kill those who work on Thursday or Friday, the Muslim holy day, are crippling the economy.

Thai models present condoms flavoured like durian fruit on the streets of Bangkok December 1 as they give away thousands of them to passers-by on World AIDS day. The condom maker says it will give away 100,000 to create more awareness about AIDS prevention and of course boost business in Thailand where condom usage has increased to 30 million annually compared to just two million a decade ago. Durians are spiky Asian fruits with a very strong smell but extremely sweet edible pulp which are either loved or hated for its unique smell and attributes.
