Medan Flights Guide
Medan is Indonesia’s 4th largest city, and the biggest urban center on the island of Sumatra. As elsewhere in Indonesia, Medan was for a long time ruled by the Dutch. Colonial architecture contrasts with other styles, setting a tone of diversity that the city’s demographic mirrors in ethnicity.
Medan is often visited only as a stepping stone to get to other, more touristic areas of Sumatra. However, there are a number of places within the city that are beautiful. Of recognizable sites, the Mesjid Raya Mosque is probably the most emblematic. Nearby, one comes upon the original, alluring façade of the Maimoon Palace. Of diversity, there are three main Buddhist temples, the Shri Mariamman Hindu Temple and the Annai Velangkanni Catholic shrine. Of the Buddhist temples, the most-visited is modern Vihara Maha Maitreya. It is the largest of its kind in the entirety of Southeast Asia. Another city icon is the water tower, which was constructed by the Dutch. For the best old Dutch constructions (and a myriad of food on offer), one should find themselves in Kesawan Square. When the city has well enough impressed, most find their way to Berastagi town and the crater Lake Toba.
Kuala Namu International Airport is serviced by two dozen or more airlines. Susi Air, Silk Air, Tigerair, Garuda Indonesia, Indonesia AirAsia and Lion Air are some of the carriers.
