One of Indonesia’s largest cities, Medan is a thriving hub for food, drink, and unique museums. Tjong A Fie’s Mansion, for example, is a small but fascinating museum exhibition housed within a historic Chinese style mansion. This mansion will enable you to step back a century into the past. Visit the Marian Shrine of Annai Velangkanni in the city centre to see one of the true architectural gems of Medan. The majestic blue and white Medan Grand Mosque is another real architectural treasure of the city. If adventure and excitement are what you are looking for, then make sure to pay a visit to the Hillpark Sibolangit, a large amusement park. The Gedung Arca is one of the most interesting exhibition centres in Indonesia, and is a great place to learn about the history and culture of this part of the country. The Two Colors Sibolangit Waterfall is a lovely place for a day trip, a picnic, and a stroll. Indonesian food is deliciously spicy, and there are plenty of sweet treats to sample too, so checking out some of the restaurants and other eateries in Medan is certainly a great idea during your stay here.
There is a good bus network in the city, and plenty of taxis around too. A more traditional way to travel is by Becak, or rickshaw-style bike. These chauffeur driven bikes are much cheaper than taxis, and provide you with a unique way of seeing the city. If you like, you can also hire a vehicle and a driver for the duration of your stay, or you can hire a car for yourself to drive. There are specialised tour buses, too, that will take you to key attractions in and around Medan, such as the waterfalls or other beautiful parts of the countryside that surrounds the city.
Getting from the Airport to the City
Kuala Namu International Airport (KNO) is located 24 miles (39 km) from the centre of Medan. You can take the modernised ‘Railink’ service from the airport to the centre of town. Railink is probably your easiest option for reaching your hotel after your flight arrives, but if you prefer, you can also take an airport bus, hire a car, or hop into a taxi.
