How It Begins: Sim Koa Yen is located in Machap District of the Historical City of Malaysia – Malacca. It is 22km from the town. With the compound of more than four hectares, Sim Koa Yen is built abutting the largest dam in the state of Malacca – the Durian Tunggal Dam. Once step into the orchard, picturesque scenery soon comes into sight. The orchard possesses a peaceful environment brimming with sound and scent of the nature.
When the owner Mr Yap Peck Hoe (Li Yu Jushi) purchased this piece of land on 25-07-1991, it was a land with aged rubber plantation. After painstaking exploitation and attentive cares, the branded Balik Pulau Durian of Penang was planted in the orchard which has blossomed and borned aromatic durian twelve years later.
