More about Medan

About Medan

Medan is the capital of North Sumatra Province and the third largest metropolitan city in Indonesia. Kuala Namu International Airport and Belawan Port have been the gateway to these western parts of Indonesia. In addition to facilitating access from Medan to other regions, this gateway also affects the tourism potential with the increasing visits to tourist attractions in Medan. Geographically, Medan borders directly with the Malacca Strait to the north, Deli Serdang Regency to the east, south, and west. Compared to other regions, Medan is relatively small. However, the Medan region that tends to be tilted and located on the edge of the Malacca Strait lane gives a significant advantage, especially to the province’s growth. According to historical records, the name “Medan” is derived from the word "Maidhan" or "Maidhanam,” which means terrain in Tamil. Before becoming a metropolitan city that offers many interesting places, Medan used to be a port area. Medan is a tropical rainforest with an annual rainfall of 2,200 millimeters per year. The average temperature in Medan is around 27oC. The city, which is crossed by nine rivers, has abundant natural resources. It’s no wonder that Medan has been growing rapidly and becoming a tourist destination for both domestic and international travelers.
