The Angel of Medan

A travel blog entry by mikeandsheila


The road from Dumai to Medan is long, but we don't see much of the Sumatran scenery as it's dark all the way. For the first half of the journey we glimpse towns, villages and hamlets flashing by as the bus swerves and overtakes its way down the simple two lane highway. We stop somewhere for a break and Sheila and I have hot coffees, it's not worth …

Destination 8 – Welcome to the Jungle

A travel blog entry by t-dot


We had a driver scheduled to pick us up Monday morning at our hotel at 11am so we took our time getting ready after breakfast. We had just started packing things up around 10:20 when our phone rang and reception told us that our driver was waiting in the lobby for us. He was 40 minutes early making us rush to pack everything else up. Once we were sure we had everything we headed down to the lobby to check out of the hotel and meet him. ...

Bukit Lawang - Northern Sumatra

A travel blog entry by siancorbs


We flew to medan early on and had arranged an airport pick up with the place we were staying that was about a four hour drive away as the thought of negotiating bus fares and guessing where to go was grim. The driver was called Bebe and he was really nice and friendly and we got to nap in the car. He stopped off at the mosque to pray after a couple of hors which was fine so we got out to buy some water and got heavily bullied by the kids at the mosque school attached! They all came ...

Jungle bells and city blues

... tourist from the very North of Sumatra, Yo Busra! So I started looking around and got in contact with a Czech guy who is really into conservation of rain forests around the world. I decided to go and work with him in a camp at the border of the National Park, a 3-4 hour hike away.

Medan, Sumatra, Indonesia!

A travel blog entry by hugh.asia.trip


... country is given over to oil palm plantations, and I pass through a fair few of them on my way to Bukit Lawang the next day.

The owner at Angel Guesthouse is like “What you doing tomorrow? Going to visit your cousins?”. I’m like “I don’t have cousins here”. He replies, “I mean the Orang Utans. Look it up in the bible” he says, pointing to my Lone Planet Indonesia. So I’m off to Bukit Lawang to see the big hairy ...

Heaven in Hell

Reviewed Apr 22, 2012

Well, Medan is not exactly hell but it works in the title. Medan is a big, crazy city, not voted as the travellers' favourite destination, but rather used as a base to start exploring Sumatra from. The Angel is on a frantic main road with a fence down the middle of it and non-stop cars zooming along it at all hours. That's what puts the hotel in the 'heavenly' catagory. It's clean, tidy, has a very traveller-friendly cafe that sells cold Bintang, and, they organise onward travel to Bukit Luang and Lake Toba. In fact, the transport, accommodation and two day Orang utan jungle trek they sold us was not only good value but also led to us having a great time. If you'r in Medan for a night or two max - stay here!
