  not accepting unmarried couple
by asikajee

Maninjau area has strong Islam beliefs. Most of accomodations there will not allow couples that are not married to sleep on the same room. This is only for local (Indonesian) tourists. I was traveling with a guy friend. And when we were looking for a place to stay, the hotel guy didnt say anything and just stared at us like we were full of sins, and did not smile at all. After I asked for 2 rooms, he smiled a little (underline the word little). Hehehe that was a funny experince. For you foreigners, you don't have to worry about this.
