UnderstandEdit

Tapak Tuan is a town on the west coast of Sumatra. When traveling along the west coast of Sumatra it is well worth a stop for a night. The town is located between the mountains and the sea.

Get inEdit

You can get to here for example from Sabuluassalam, when coming from Berastagi.

Get aroundEdit

You can walk around the Main Street and along the coastal promenade within an hour or two.

SeeEdit

When going from the roundabout along Jalan Mederka straight till the end and further, you'll end up at a cafe on the coast. From there you can walk along a concrete path and over some rocks to the *footprint of the giant* after which the town is named. The panorama is well worth the 10 minutes walk. Have a coconut in the cafe on the way back.

DoEdit

BuyEdit

Ice cream and banana crisps are sold at the store next to the roundabout.

EatEdit

DrinkEdit

There are some nice, relatively stylish cafes in the city. Just walk around and you should find them.
