The climate in Indonesia is warm throughout the year, so it can be said that there is no bad time to visit in terms of the weather. Travel between March and October to avoid the (usually short) periods of rainfall that can occur in Medan, though be aware that traveling during the summer vacations can be more expensive than at other times. Visit during one of the city’s many festivals (such as the annual Holi One Color Festival, the date of which is confirmed anew each year), to enjoy the buzzing crowds of locals and visitors alike.
One of Indonesia’s largest cities, Medan is a thriving hub for food, drink, and unique museums. Tjong A Fie’s Mansion, for example, is a small but fascinating museum exhibition housed within a historic Chinese style mansion. This mansion will enable you to step back a century into the past. Visit the Marian Shrine of Annai Velangkanni in the downtown area to see one of the true architectural gems of Medan. The majestic blue and white Medan Grand Mosque is another real architectural treasure of the city. If adventure and excitement are what you are looking for, then make sure to pay a visit to the Hillpark Sibolangit, a large amusement park. The Gedung Arca is one of the most interesting exhibition centers in Indonesia, and is a great place to learn about the history and culture of this part of the country. The Two Colors Sibolangit Waterfall is a lovely place for a day trip, a picnic, and a stroll. Indonesian food is deliciously spicy, and there are plenty of sweet treats to sample too, so checking out some of the restaurants and other eateries in Medan is certainly a great idea during your stay here.
There is a good bus network in the city, and plenty of taxis around too. A more traditional way to travel is by Becak, or rickshaw-style bike. These chauffeur driven bikes are much cheaper than taxis, and provide you with a unique way of seeing the city. If you like, you can also rent a vehicle and a driver for the duration of your stay, or you can rent a car for yourself to drive. There are specialised tour buses, too, that will take you to key attractions in and around Medan, such as the waterfalls or other beautiful parts of the countryside that surrounds the city.
Kuala Namu International Airport (KNO) is located 24 miles from downtown Medan. You can take the modernised ‘Railink’ service from the airport to the downtown area. Railink is probably your easiest option for reaching your hotel after your flight arrives, but if you prefer, you can also take an airport bus, rent a car, or hop into a taxi.
KNO stands for Medan Kuala Namu Intl Airport. Codes like this one are often called IATA codes, a set of identifiers established by IATA (International Air Transport Association) that is widely used by airlines and the aviation industry.
Booking a flight to Medan Kuala Namu Intl (KNO) is your only option if you intend on flying to Medan. It is only a 14.8 mi journey from Kuala Namu Intl to Medan’s city center.
