  • Best hotel near Pajak Ikan


    The hotel is clean, big room and near the food court at the Lapangan Merdeka. Easy access to Popular Market, Pajak Ikan and near by shopping centre just at the back of the hotel beside the river. Breakfast is really good and staff are very friendly and helpful. I surely will stay there next time. Taxi fare to the airport between 40 to 50K rupiah.

    Unique Quality: Great view and very near to McD.

    Directions: Nearby railway station about 100 meter.

Queries on Lake Toba

by MissyWaterfalls


How many hours drive is Lake Toba from Medan? A day trip to Lake Toba, is it sufficient, factoring in the distance need to be travelled from Medan to Lake Toba and vice versa or is it advisable to stay overnight while we're there to enjoy the beauty of the lake and perhaps taking the time to spend a relaxing day at Samosir Island? Can you also please give recommendations on the boarding in Lake Toba, read online that Elina and Carolina guesthouses came highly recommended. What is the price range (from indonesian rupiah? to indonesian rupiah? a night) of the hotels/guesthouses in Lake Toba?
Thanks, Missy

I recommend spending the night at Lake Toba, why stay in Medan when you can stay at Lake Toba?

I not sure where I stayed but I think it was at the Carolina. I went from Lake Toba to Medan sometime in the mid 1990s. It was too long ago during the currency meltdown so the prices I paid are not relevant today. If I remember correctly, the Carolina is very close to the ferry and was ok, maybe a little better then many of the other places on the island.

BTW at the time I was in Sumatra, Lake Toba was considered pass say and a different volcanic lake south of Lake Toba was considered better by the back packers. I went to both. They were both fine, Lake Toba was more developed then the other lake.

Hi Mikey,

Thanks! :) I have managed to make the change required to my hotel stay in Medan and will be spending a night in Lake Toba upon arriving there this weekend. My first trip to Medan and I'm excited 'bout it! Yeah a friend recommended me Carolina too and said it to be one of the best in Samosir, so will be checking that out!

Oh really, Lake Toba was considered passe when u were there back then, hmmm...irregardless I am heading there still but if there's enough time, might "squeeze" in a trip to that volcanic lake south of Lake Toba as u mentioned.
Cheers, Missy

I don't remember the name of the other lake but both were fine so you may just want to stay at Lake Toba. Sometimes backpackers like to put down what they think is touristy. Lake Toba is more developed and has more hotels.

Remember I was there a long time ago and it may be different now. Also, it was during the currency meltdown and very few people were going to Indonesia. Even when we stayed in different hotels, many of the people on the ferry became friends and got together while on the island because there were almost no people there at that time.

I'm sure Lake Toba is back to normal now. :) Have a good trip.

That depends on the route, but if you go direct from Meda it should be about 4 hours. Toba is great, and head straight over to Tuk Tuk on Samosir Island. Don't bother fooling around with Parapat on the mainland.

Travel Tips for Medan

Road Side "Restaurants"

by SLLiew

At the corner of the busy road, I was fascinated by the sight a local woman selling her breakfast/lunch menu of rice with different curry dishes.

A mobile unit, there seems to be complaints by the locals or interference by the authorities.

There were a few stools for her diners or you could take away (to go).

There are many enterprising foodstalls over all Medan.

dress like a sultan in the Maimoon-palace

by globetrott

The Maimoon palace (Sultans Palace) is a great chance to dress like the sultan and/or his wife in authentic costumes. In the back of the palace there is a room with a large selection of costumes and there is a photographer, who will take photos of you dressed in these costumes at whatever place in the palace : in front of the throne or at the terrace etc.
Charges are certainly quite low, but I did not ask for the price.

Nice Course , Facilities Exhausted .....

by kenari

It’s been said that “The Royal Sumatra” have been taken up by a Korean businessmman as all the website in korean language...anyway the course is beautiful except we dissapointed with the facilities.bUt i think within 2 years time when the new club house ready then should be ok MY advice PLS shower at you hotel after the game...

The Village of Lingga

by kenari

Located some 15 km from Berastagi, this is a unique Batak Karo village where tra-
ditional houses are still well preserved and inhabited today. Five to six families live in each house, unseparated by any partition, while each family have their own stoves
