MINANG in local languagge means a triumphant and KABAU means BUFFALO , what is the story behind this two words are already explained by other members of this VT Community.
the Province of West Sumatra is one of Indonesia most interesting and influential ethnic groups. The Minangkabau are versatile and intelligent people who lead a community and family life based on a matrilineal system which is the women who own property and the men who choose to wander. Traveling is considered a mark of success and therefore many West Sumatrans are found in other parts of the country.
PADANG as the Capital City and also as the center of the Provincial Government Administration is one of Indonesian Trade center since the Era of the United Kingdom colony and the Dutch Colony.
The local government was decided that PADANG was established in Agust 7, 1669 , so this 2007 Padang was celebrating his 338 years Anniversary.If we travel to Padang, we can find Padang is a dynamic city where we can see so many Hotels and Touristic places worth to visit: there are so many historical old Building, Teluk Bayur Sea Port, Minang Kabau Air Port, Siti Nurbaya Bridge, and a beach lines along the Western Part of the City
