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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Museum Tsunami Aceh and Baitul Musyahadah Mosque. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Rahmatullah Mosque and Taman Putroe Phang. When in Banda Aceh, make a side trip to see Lhoknga Beach in Lhonga, approximately Lhonga away. Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 10th (Thu) at Kuta Malaka Water Boom. And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Rumoh Cut Nyak Dhin, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Baiturrahim Mosque, don't miss a visit to Siron Mass Grave, and explore the galleries of PLTD Apung 1.

Aceh travel guide

Scuba & Snorkeling · Specialty Museums · Beaches
The province of Aceh, situated at the northwestern tip of Indonesia, holds many natural wonders. The lush tropical jungle boasts some of the greatest biodiversity in the Asian Pacific, supporting critically endangered Sumatran orangutans, tigers, elephants, and rhinos. The coral reefs off the Aceh coast are equally fecund, creating a diver's and snorkeler's paradise. You can hike and climb to the top of mountains and volcanoes, or stretch out on miles of undeveloped beaches. The towns and cities hold traditional architecture and grand mosques. All visitors planning a vacation to Aceh must be aware that Sharia law is in effect, including for tourists. Failure to comply risks severe reprisals, not only from the local authorities, but from religious police and vigilante crowds.
