Sumatra

Sumatra, Dangerously Beautiful

Sumatra offers a breath of fresh air after the hustle and bustle of Singapore.  While the island’s capital Medan is still a very energetic city,  as soon as you leave the city you’ll find an explorer’s paradise as the vast majority of the island remains undiscovered. Most of the highlights are in the north at places like Bukit Lawang, a jungle-shrouded river, here we are able to offer our guests the best chance to see orang-utans in the wild.

As varied as the land, the people of Sumatra are a spicy melting pot of mixed cultures, from the Muslims in Aceh to the hedonistic Batak Christians around Danau Toba and the matrilineal Minangkabau of Padang. All are unified by respect and love of the wild and wondrous land of Sumatra.
