    • Recommended budget accomodation in Medan

      Medan May 12, 2014 at 8:22 PM

      Hey everyone, I'm new to this site but I've already seen some really helpful info. I arrive in Medan on the 29th of September at 19:10. I have to get to Bukit Lawang but I figured it might be best to spend the night in Medan and head to Bukit Lawang the next morning by bus. can anyone recommend a nice cheap save place to sleep and also an easy save way to get there from the airport. I'll be traveling solo.

      Thanx in advance.

      KNO Airport to Tuktuk, Lake Toba

      North Sumatra Province Apr 27, 2014 at 11:03 PM

      Hey guys,

      I'm going to have a solo backpacking trip to Lake Toba in 2 more days on Apr 30th. I need an advise in terms of travel timing.

      Expected to reach Kuala Namu Int Airport on Wed Apr 30th @1400 hours. Any idea the fastest way to get to Lake Toba from KNO airport? FYI I've booked accommodation somewhere in Tuktuk Siadong, Samosir Island. Not sure if I need to get a ferry ride from Lake Toba to the hotel.

      Since I'm travelling alone which transportation recommended? I'm just scared I can't catch a ferry as they said last ferry from Parapat is 7pm.

      My flight back will be on Sat May 2nd @1400

      Hope to hear from you guys soon. =)

      Taxi from Airport

      Medan Apr 8, 2014 at 12:09 AM

      Hi ,
      I will be reaching Medan tomorrow in the evening around 7:30 pm at Kualanamu Airport. I need to go to Sibayak Multinational Resthouse, Berastagi.
      What I am asking is : Is it safe to travel from Medan to Berastagi at night?We are 2 persons. I heard it takes 4 hours. Is Medan safe at night? Or is it better if I stay back in airport that night and start next day morning?
      And,. which Taxi should I choose from airport??? I am considering both safety and money..
      I talked to someone in Medan for Taxi transport. He told me that he will charge 600,000 IDR!.. I believe it is too much!
      Please reply soon...

      Waiting for the reply...

      Thanks in advance.

    • Family Travel - Itinerary & Timing Questions

      North Sumatra Province Apr 23, 2013 at 6:57 PM

      We are a family of four (two older teens) who are interested in going to Sumatra. We have about 16 days (including travel to/from Australia) and were considering flying in Medan, seeing orangutans in Bukit Lawang and possibly trekking a bit there (son is very fit; us not as much!) or possibly saving trekking to do so with elephants in Tangkahan, which sounds amazing. We also want to fit in Lake Toba and a 5+ day beach holiday at the end. We are wondering for the beach part if we should then go up to Banda Ache and on to Pulau Weh (is there snorkelling there as well as diving and is there anything for the kids to do if they get sick of relaxing?) or fly to Padang at go to cubadak paradisovillage where there seems to be diving and snorkelling. As I write all this, I think it sounds ambitious for two weeks, so would like advice about what the best options are. We've been diving/snorkelling in Bunaken, Komodo/Flores and Barrier Reef so wonder how marine life around Sumatra compares. Also visited orangutans in Kalimantan via river boat. We are hoping that Sumatra will be different to those trips to add to our love of Indonesia and our view of how diverse the country is. Thank you for any advice you can provide!
