Siberut National Park Vacations
Staying in only one place, regardless of its popularity, usually only offers you a glimpse into the broader rhythms and life-ways of a region. So be sure to set aside enough time to explore Sumatra's other sights and attractions.
People who visit Sumatra are often delighted to discover the wide range of open-air markets here. A useful technique to really get a sense of a place and its people is by gaining an understanding of its past. While in Sumatra, be sure to tour the area's traditional villages.
Water-based sports are a much-loved activity here. When the weather is fine, why not go kite surfing or surfing; this area has some great spots. No getaway is really complete without a good dose of down time. Wildlife watching is one of the activities they do to relax in this region and sunbathing is another.
More often than not, a region's true personality can be found within its culinary traditions. Pork as well as dog are commonly used in cooking here. Rendang (spicy buffalo meat dish) and pempek (deep fried fish and sago dumpling) are two local dishes guaranteed to delight visitors' palates with a true taste of Sumatra. Once the main course dishes are cleared away order the delicious rujak (fruit salad).
Sumatra should absolutely be one of the top items on your bucket list.
