Travel Tips for Medan

Tree Lined Roads & Nice Roundabouts

by SLLiew

My first impression of Medan from the airport was the beautiful trees along the road. It reminded me of Penang and Nanjing.

In many places due to widening of roads, trees have to be cut down to make way for more lanes. Hopefully the trees along the roads of Medan will be preserved.

Not only the trees provide greenery and shade, they are so important symbolically in our world working against global warming.

There are several endearing roundabouts with fountains and small monuments. Hope they will not all be replaced by "efficient but lack of character" traffic lights anytime soon.

Medan "Starbucks"

by SLLiew

At the Main Post Office, I observed many locals having their coffee at this mobile "coffee shop" by the road side.

Across the road was a 24 hour McDonald serving their breakfast menu but it had fewer clients.

At least for the time being, it is great that everyone has a choice of going local or "international".

President of Indonesia

by SLLiew

Indonesia is the 4th populous country in the world with the largest Muslim population. It has a secular constitution, a republic with an elected parliament and a President. Indonesia declared independence and waged a war against Dutch in 1945 - her former colonial master.

So my camera caught the photo displayed in one of the hotel rooms of the current Indonesian President Susilo Bamban Yudhoyono.

Previous Presidents were Sukarno, Suharto and followed by elected Bacharuddin Jusuf Habibie, Abdurrahman Wahid, the daughter or Sukarno - Megawati Sukarnoputri.

Tor Tor Dance

by SLLiew

This is a popular Batak dance to welcome visitors.

The steps are simpler and holding the palms together and moving is up and down. Then later palms apart and blessing over the dancer's head.

It is a common practise to give a RM1000 rupiah into the hands of the welcoming host and hostess as a symbol of returning your goodwill and belessings.

We had a lot of fun doing the tor tor dance during the welcoming dinner night of our convention.

Tai Qi in the morning

by SLLiew

At Merdeka Square in the morning around 7am, you can join a group of local Indonesian Chinese doing the traditional Chinese Tai Qi exercise with music.

Each move is slow and determined to exercise specific body muscles and joint movement and help blood circulation and respiration through breathing in or out or holding one's breath.

Each move has also a fancy name like dragon chasing after the pearls.

Though Tai Qi is usually practised by the elderly, it is gaining popularity with all walks of life when there are newer more upbeat music rhythm.
