Bukittinggi

Trip Planner Asia  /  Indonesia  /  Sumatra  /  West Sumatra  /  Bukittinggi

London of Sumatra

With a population of over 117,000 spread out over an area of 25 sq km (9.7 sq mi), Bukittinggi represents one of the largest cities in Western Sumatra. Literally translated as "high hill," Bukittinggi houses some of the most scenic mountain ranges in the country, as well as two volcanoes--one active, one inactive. The lush, green environments of the city are offset by a buzz of activity; religion, commerce, and traffic all combine to make this an incredibly vibrant place. That said, a Bukittinggi holiday will be a wet one, as it tends to rain every day in the region. The rain is often light and shouldn't affect your trip, but do bring appropriate footwear. Plan my Indonesia trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
