2D1N Sabang – Banda Aceh

Short weekend getaway after driving 5-6 hours from Lhokseumawe to Banda Aceh.

We departed from Lhokseumawe around 6 or 7 pm. We made a stop at Socolatte (local chocolate product) for a while to buy some souvenirs. We arrived at Banda Aceh around 1 am and stayed a night at Siwah Hotel since all new hotel are already full.

The First Day:

Early morning we went to Ule Lhee Harbour to take ferry to Sabang Island. We use SABANGKOTA tour service for our short and quick getaway. We also had snorkling time on the first day.

Kesawan Street : Tjong A Fie Mansion

I’m so glad to come back to Medan city in this October 2015 after my first visit two years ago, exactly in the same month, October 2013. Not because I have more time to enjoy the culinary tour, but because I also can walk the heritage trail here, Kesawan Street. Not much to see since the street were very crowded. I visited a museum named Tjong A Fie Mansion and grabbed some pictures in it.
