Medan Trip 1: Toba Lake and Samosir Island

Last December 2013,  I got the chance to go to Medan and traveled to some popular cities around Medan, like Pematang Siantar, Prapat, and Berastagi before exploring the Medan itself.

For the flight from Palembang to Medan, I used Garuda. I was surprised that I should walk to the plane until I realized the plane is the small one. The seat is 2-2 so the foot space is bigger but the height isn’t.
