Medan Trip 20-25/10//2011 - Day 1

Once again, my family and i got a chance to travel with free flight tickets. Our destination is Medan, Indonesia. We only pay for the airport tax which is worth RM 26 for return trip from Penang-Medan-Penang. Thanks to Airasia for this great opportunities.

My parent insists to visit Medan  since we can get there from Penang and its only  took us 45 minutes to get there. I used to visit Bandung few times and it is one of my favorite places since it the best place for shopping and its cheaper there. But, discover new places is good too.My parent never travel outside Malaysia, so, it the best time to visit Medan.

Before my trip, i do some research, asked friends about Medan and interesting places to visit. From there, i knew that Medan is not the best place for shopping since the price there almost similar to Malaysia. Furthermore, it attraction areas located far from the city. To get to Lake Toba itself took around 4-6 hours drive.

Since i dont have much time before the travel date , i decided to search for travel agent and managed to find one. Thanks to Lovelyholidays, even though we just managed to confirmed for the package less than a week, they did a great job and discover Medan became easier for us. 

Based on the details i gave, they proposed an itineraries which i think suitable for us since i don't want my parent get tired with too pack schedule. The package price is reasonable too.

From there, he took us to a local  restaurant for dinner. This restaurant is famous with their Nasi Padang and Ayam Pop dish.






The foods is nice and we enjoyed our dinner. Mr. Asdo took us to Antares Hotel and we check in there for that night . Hotel Antares is a great 3 star hotel right in the centre of Medan. Located on Jalan Sisingamangaraja 50m down from the Mesjid Raya. Yuki Simpang Raya Supermarket located just 240m from that hotel.
