A Land Trip from ACEH to PADANG

Favorite thing: Sumatra is a great place to explore, I have had a land trip by public transportation from Northern parts of Sumatra going southward. From Sabang on Weh island, Banda Aceh, Takengon, Bireun, Lhok Seumawe, Langsa, Medan, Lake TOBA, Sibolga, Mandailing Natal, Panyabungan, crossing Equator line and its monument at Bonjol village, Bukit Tinggi and Padang..... an earthQuake that rock Padang in September 30, 2009 is now under recovery, my friend over there told me that one could still enjoy the Panorama of West Sumatra right now, Bukit Tinggi is not so much influenced by the Quake, and you can reach Padang from Bukit Tinggi by another route of Lembah Anai (the road at this place was damage but under reconstruction), take a route via Solok by the side of beauty Danau (Lake) Singkarak......have a nice trips, cheers from Bogor Indonesia

Fondest memory: The beauty of Weh island - Banda Aceh, the capital of Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam Province - Danau (Lake) Laut Tawar at Takengon - Medan, the capital city of North Sumatra Province- Danau Toba - Sinolga - Panyabungan - Equatorline Monument at Bonjol - Bukit Tinggi - Padang, the capital of West Sumatra Province.

The Road between Medan and Parapat - North Sumatra Province

The Road between Medan and Parapat

A Nice Road to Parapat

Favorite thing: The Road From Medan To Parapat is better than a few years before, so the trip by land is not a boring one. On the other hand, we can see a greenery of Rubber and Palm Oil plantation along the street, in the far away we also see a bluish Bukit Barisan mountain range in a good weather

Fondest memory: The trip from Medan to Parapat take approximately 4 hours through a few stop over small city, Deli Serdang, Serdang Bedagai, Pematang Siantar and a few moment before entering Parapat we can see beautiful Panorama of Lake Toba

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
