Porch of Mecca
The relaxed, relatively peaceful atmosphere and viable tourism industry in Banda Aceh attests to the city's resilience in rebuilding after over 160,000 people were killed in the 2004 tsunami. Nicknamed the "Porch of Mecca," this is a devoutly religious city, and a Banda Aceh holiday would not be complete without checking out the ornate and intricately carved mosques that are central to life here. Bicycle tours, diving clubs, and island trips offer diversions for the active traveler. Plan your trip to Banda Aceh and other Indonesia destinations using our handy Indonesia tour itinerary planner.
