What We Love About Medan

Once a mere settlement in a swampland between the Deli and Babura Rivers, Medan has developed into a beautiful and bustling metropolis and was dubbed “Parijs van Sumatra” by the Dutch because it’s said to resemble France’s City of Lights. Explore its lively streets, drop by and purchase things from its numerous shophouses, admire its exquisite architecture, and discover its festive nightlife. Outside of the city, you can go bathing in colorful hotsprings and explore its numerous natural wonders. Adding this city to your itinerary will surely make your Indonesia trip more memorable.
