Tapak Tuan is in Aceh.

Understand[edit]

Tapak Tuan is a town on the west coast of Sumatra. When traveling along the west coast of Sumatra it is well worth a stop for a night. The town is located between the mountains and the sea.

Get in[edit]

You can get to here for example from Sabuluassalam, when coming from Berastagi.

Get around[edit]

You can walk around the Main Street and along the coastal promenade within an hour or two.

See[edit]

When going from the roundabout along Jalan Mederka straight till the end and further, you'll end up at a cafe on the coast. From there you can walk along a concrete path and over some rocks to the *footprint of the giant* after which the town is named. The panorama is well worth the 10 minutes walk. Have a coconut in the cafe on the way back.

Do[edit]

Buy[edit]

Ice cream and banana crisps are sold at the store next to the roundabout.

Eat[edit]

Drink[edit]

There are some nice, relatively stylish cafes in the city. Just walk around and you should find them.

Sleep[edit]

There are at least 6 hotels, two of them along Jalan Mederka, the other 4 in the street going along the coast. The coastal ones are newer. The ones along Jalan Mederka need renovation.
