The city of Medan is the third largest city in Indonesia and is the capital of the most westerly island of Sumatra. It is a city usually only passed through for people on the way to either Lake Toba, a volcanic crater lake; or Gunung Leuser National Park, a vast expanse of primary rainforest home to a variety of flora and fauna — most famously orangutan.
The city does have several impressive buildings including the Maimoon Palace and some interesting museums depicting the troublesome history between the Aceh and Deli people.
