The journey in this province will be on Padang and Bukittinggi.
Padang is the gateway to the Minang highlands. With the largest port on Sumatra’s West Coast, this is a merchant town attracting ships trading in goods such as rubber, cinnamon, coffee, tee, cement and coal.
Famous throughout Indonesia for its distinctive cuisine, Padang is the place to go to sample the famous spicy nasi padang food that has spread throughout the country and the world, includes such delicacies as the spicy coconut curry rendang and soto padang.
Experience the unique way how Padang food is served. The waiters expertly carry more than ten plates with all kinds of delicacies on both arms. These dishes will then be spread out on the table for diners to pick and choose.
And Bukittinggi is the place to visit the remarkable Sianok Canyon, where giant rock cliff faces, rugged trees which grow on top and the dramatic surrounding mountains make this canyon a spellbinding view. Bukittinggi has a refreshingly cool climate due to its elevation – over 900 meters above sea level.
