Sumatra Island is famous for wildlife, culture and volcanoes. One of largest island in Indonesia after Borneo.



Sumatra is a big island and its wild beauty is as diverse as its cultural heritage. This island is almost four times the size of its neighbor Java, but has less than a quarter of the population. However its abundant natural resources have long popped up the Indonesian economy. It was known in ancient times as Swarnadwipa (Island of Gold). Today its rich oil and gas fields generate the lion’s share of Indonesia’s export income.

The biggest attractions are in the north between Padang and Medan, many travelers skip southern Sumatra by taking a long bus trip or quicker ship or flight from Jakarta to Padang. The first sight to come on this route is the mountain town of Bukittinggi, a cultural centre for the Minangkabau people. From there it’s a long journey to the other main travelers’ centre at Danau Toba. From Toba to Medan, popular stops are the mountain town of Brastagi and the orang-utan centre at Bukit Lawang. Side trips could include Nias or Mentawai Islands off the east coast. Aceh also has some superb beaches, especially on the Pulau Weh (Weh Island).
