      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.
      Thank you.

    • Guide on Transportation to Bkt. Tinggi & Shopping

      by hazirf Online Now Jul 6, 2007 at 9:58 PM

      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!

      Trip to Bukittinggi in December

      by saa73 Online Now Nov 6, 2006 at 5:33 AM

      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??)

    • Good local guide

      by AndyDem Online Now Oct 15, 2004 at 1:13 AM

      We will be coming to Bukittinggi in January next year and will only have five days there (unfortunately!) Can anyone recommend an experienced local guide who can (1) take us on a tour of local sights and industries and (2) take us up Merapi? We don't speak very good Bahasa so some English would be helpful. And does anyone know if Merapi is safe to climb at the moment? Thanks for any suggestions/ advice.
