    In Parapat, the public transport was cheap, a mini van with regular route, would charge you three or five thousand rupiahs from one point to one destination nearby.
    If you want to go to samosir island just head on to PASAR TIGA RAJA, a local market where you could find a boat use by local peoples from Parapat to samosir vise verse, its only ten thousand rupiah one way, and they drop you at carolina port or silintong port. see "SAMOSIR ISLAND The HEART OF BATAK Tribe" - Pulau Samosir by meiyergani
    In samosir island you could getting around by hire a bycicle or motorcycle please see Pulau Samosir Transportation Tips by meiyergani.
    Another option is from Ajibata ferry port at Parapat to Tomok port at samosir island.
