Sumatra, the largest island wholly in Indonesia, embraces wildness to the point that the region is steeped in myths and legends. Jungles here teem with orangutans, tigers, rhinos, and elephants, while smoldering volcanoes create an otherworldly environment. In the towns, cultural landmarks of religious and historical importance sit alongside new feats of impressive engineering, entertainment attractions, and tourist-focused shopping districts.
