Summary

Medan, capital of North Sumatra, is a booming economic hub and commercial centre for the region. Due to its array of ethnic diversities, Medan is well known for its delicious diversity of culinary hotspots, rich with many flavours from all over Indonesia and beyond. Medan holds some glorious examples of 19th century colonial architecture, built by the Dutch gentry who grew rich on the back of the vast plantations stretching up the slopes of Bukit Barisan to the west of the city. The city has changed considerably over the past several decades from a small but wealthy plantation city, into a sprawling and bustling metropolis.
