Hi, thank you for the info on the hotels. Read that an earth quake had happened in Padang yesterday also affecting bukittinggi. Have made plans for my trip to bukittinggi in Dec but now I am not so sure if I should proceed with my visit or cancel it. Is it still safe to go? Hope anyone in padang or bukittinggi could give some opinion. I am looking forward to this trip.
I'll be in Bukittinggi this Dec. Between Dymens Hotel, Nikita Hotel and Ambun Suri..which is the better one? Nearest to the clock tower? Can anyone give me their rates?
How much will it cost to take taksi from the airport to Bkt. Tinggi. I had terrible experience with taksi in Indonesia. They tend to charge ridiculous price if they know you are not local.
I am looking for the embroidery material/fabric in bulk. Where can i buy the material in Bkt. Tinggi with wholesale price? Where is the factory producing those nice embroidery fabric.
Thank you very much!

Saya ingin melancong bersama keluarga ke Minagkabau hujubf bulan ini. Ada cadangan hotel/wisma/losmen yang baik di Padang dan Bukit Tinggi? Bajetnya sederhana. Kami bercadang untuk mencuba Hotel Benyamin di Padang dan Villa Merdeka di Bukit Tinggi. Ada yang pernah menginap atau sampai di sana?
Sewa kereta dari Padang ke Bukit Tinggi: berapa harganya?

Am taking my parents to visit the land of the Minangs end of this month. Any place to recommend in Padang and Bukit Tinggi?. Mid range budget. Considering Hotel Benyamin in Padang and Villa Merdeka in Bulit Tinggi. Anyone been/ stayed at these places before?
Taxi from Padang to Bukit Tinggi: How much approximately?
Thanks in advance!
My wife and I will be visiting Bukittinggi next month (Dec 18-21) and would be grateful for advice on the following:
i) Transport - is it at all possible/advisable to hire a self-drive car?
ii) Taxi - Minangkabau airport to Bukittingi - what's the typical one-way cost? How long does it take from the airport to Bukittinggi?
iii) Accommodation - the internet searches only comes up with Hotel Pusako or Novotel - this is OK for our budget. However, are there any unique/quaint guest houses that are clean and affordable? Perhaps something like an old colonial house, eg like in Camerons Highlands in Malaysia?
Lastly - where can I sample the most awesome Minangkabau food in Bukittinggi/Padang. This is the main reason for coming over to the Minang highlands...and I must warn you, I am of Minangkabau descent and the best food is cooked by mother...so it has to be damn good!! (I love balado....where can I get the best??)
Saya akan liburan ke Padang/Bukit Tinggil tanggal 31/8/06 nanti dan tertanya kalau ada rakan2 lain yang juga ke sana. Mungkin boleh kenal2.
