The capital of North Sumatra, Medan earned the nickname "Paris of Sumatra" during Dutch colonial times due to its marked resemblance to the French city. Situated on the north coast, Medan represents the largest city in Indonesia outside of Java. Though relatively untouristed, Medan has a charming historical center and often serves as a jumping-off point for other appealing spots like Lake Toba, Malaysia, and the island of Penang. For those that do stay here, things to do in Medan include cultural tours of the old city hall, an impressive mosque, and several museums, or trips to modern malls and restaurants. Take a look at our Indonesia day trip planning website to refine the details of your trip to Medan.
