Mein Flug zurück nach Padang geht um dreizehn Uhr. Da die erste Fähre von Tuk Tuk erst um 7Uhr und der erste Bus nach Medan erst um halb Acht geht könnte es knapp werden meinen Flieger zu erreichen. Man muss wissen, de Straßen sind hier nicht immer gut und auf dem Trans-Sumatra-Highway fahren auch alle Laster, die langsam sind und den Verkehr zusä …
... found the staff very helpful and were relieved to discover it was indeed possible to use public buses toget to the airport, as log as you left enough time. All for a mere 40,000 for the both of us!
In a much better mood, we headed to our room, happy to be relaxed and cool for the first time in a while. This turned out to be rather shortlived. Now, on our journey we had come across many creepy crawlies to be expected while backpacking the area... mosquitos, ...

It's also only 25 miles from mount sinabung volcano which erupted at the beginning of the month. EXCITING! Jungle Inn was defs one of the best places we have stayed so far.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Kesawan Medan
This is a cheap hotel and facilities are very basic. No washbasin to brush your teeth. Noisy. Somebody knocked on my door at 03.00 in the morning trying to open it. Staff were chatting, singing and giggling at 07.00 in the morning which woke me up. Staff were otherwise friendly but if I would pay a little more next time for some extra comfort at another place.
