West Sumatra

The land of the Minangkabau, West Sumatera, has a district culture and architecture which distinguishes itself from the rest of the island. A land with scenic beauty of green lakes and blue mountains, West Sumatera’s center of culture and tourism is Bukittinggi in the highlands, north of the provincial capital of Padang. The name of Minangkabau means a triumphant buffalo. Most prominent in the west Sumatera landscape is the horn shaped roofs of the houses in coconut groves. The Minangkabau follow a community and family life based on matrilineal system and the Moslem religion plays an important role in communities, which cluster round mosque and traditional prominent village houses.

MENTAWAI ISLANDS

Known worldwide as the mecca for surfers, the Mentawai islands are exotically enchanting with traditional cultures and tribes that still strive. From Padang the boat ride is a long 6-10 hours, but this mini archipelago is worth every hassle.

AIR MANIS BEACH

Malin Kundang is a famous folktale from West Sumatera about a son who chose to become very arrogant even to his own mother. The mother then casted a spell on her son and turned him into stone. This stone is believed to be located on the beah of Air Manis.

MANINJAU LAKE

The ancient lake of Maninjau is 36 KM from Bukittinggi on the end of the famous winding road of Sumatera, the Kelok 44. Passing through this road is an experience of its own. It will have anyone grab on to his seat. Just try looking out the window and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Maninjau rests within a volcanic crater and the atmosphere is very serene.

ANAI VALLEY

This is the place to experience dense tropical rain forest that is inhibited by various flora and fauna, also home to three picturesque waterfalls and an inviting natural pool. Along the way to Anay Valley from Padang or Bukittinggi, keep your eyes open for wild monkeys and exquisite panorama.

SIANOK GRAND CANYON

Arguably the most stunning scenery in West Sumatera, Sianok Grand Canyon lies on the outskirts of a hill town named Bukittinggi. Sunset is particularly stunning when viewed from here with the stoic Mount Singgalang in the background, covered with mist to provide a sense of romanticism. The canyon is 100 meter deep, 15 KM long and 200 meter wide. The towns of Bukittinggi and Kota Gadang are separated by this gorge. Panorama Park in Bukittinggi is the most convenient place to enjoy Sianok Canyon.

TRANSPORTATION
The most convenient to venture Padang is by renting a car. Some rental companies offer a price that already includes everything; the car, driver and gas. Make sure to shop around. A horse-drawn carriage is perfect for couples that are looking for a unique way to enjoy Padang.

CULINARY
  • Padang Satay: Try Mak Syukur Satay Stall in Sutan Syahrir Silaing Bawah Street in Padang Panjang for an authentic West Sumatera style satay.
  • Talua Tea: A unique beverage that combines tea, egg yolk and milk. Best to be enjoyed while hot and frothy. Talua Tea can be easily found at traditional stalls or Padang food restaurant.
