Padang

Porch of Medina

The largest city on the western coast of Sumatra, Padang enjoys a reputation as one of Indonesia's cleanest and greenest cities despite its hub of residential and commercial activity.
Take a break from the city and head to Pasumpahan Island and Air Manis Beach. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Pamutusan Island and Tiram Beach. The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Pantai Carolina Bungus (Carolina Beach), stop by Kripik Balado Shirley, head outdoors with Lubuk Minturun, and see the interesting displays at Museum Adityawarman.

To see photos, where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Padang trip maker website.

Bukittinggi

London of Sumatra

With a population of over 117,000 spread out over an area of 25 sq km (9.7 sq mi), Bukittinggi represents one of the largest cities in Western Sumatra.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Batang Palupuh Nature Conservation Center (Rafflesia Park) and Goedang Ransum. Step out of the city life by going to Sianok canyon and Mount Marapi (Gunung Marapi). Explore Bukittinggi's surroundings by going to Lake Singkarak (in Solok) and Harau Canyon (in Payakumbuh). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Museum Rumah Kelahiran Bung Hatta, make a trip to Jenjang Seribu, get great views at Puncak Lawang, and pause for some photo ops at Jam Gadang Bukittinggi.

To see maps, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Bukittinggi journey planning site.

You can drive from Padang to Bukittinggi in 3 hours. Expect a daytime high around 35°C in July, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Fri) so you can travel back home.
