Chinatown Medan – Asia Mega Mas

I’m pretty sure that almost every country in this world have “Chinatown”. Well Well.. My hometown Medan also have Chinatown leh!

So, the Chinatown Medan is located at Asia Mega Mas. Last time, this place was just housing area, but few years ago, this place has turned become a crazy crowded place, especially when weekends or holidays.

So, WHAT can you find here?

A LOT OF THINGS!

But first, it’s FOOD!

Oh yeah for you who don’t know, Medan is the second biggest city in Indonesia, located at North Sumatra and FYI, it’s very famous of the FOOD! Lots of people say that Medan is the heaven of culinary. Is it true? I let you say.

So back to Chinatown Medan, is that you can find a lot kinds of food here. Penang Kwetiao, Duck Beehon, Ayam Penyet, Sate Padang, Lok Lok, and many moreee.. And not just food, you can also find some stalls selling BKK dress, shoes, cosmetics, and some other stuffs.

What I don’t like about this place is : It’s too packed! As in, if you come on weekends, most of the times you will have difficulties to find a parking lot. And also a lot of cars / motorcycles pass by the road. So, sometimes it’s just very uncomfortable when you want to shop and at the same time, you need to watch out for the vehicles passing by. It’s nicer if they close the road for vehicles so that people will be comfortable to walk around. Just IMHO though.

You haven’t come to Medan? Oh you should! Say bye bye to your diet before coming here and make sure you visit Chinatown Medan at Asia Mega Mas. It opens from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Confuse about how you should travel in Medan? Don’t worry. Just drop me an e-mail to wongsofenny@gmail.com and I’ll be happy to help 😀

Romantic Vibe and Gorgeous View all around

It’s a bit difficult if you want to find some nice parks or calm and quiet places in Medan city. Most of the time, Medan is always crowded and noisy :p
But, if you really want to just sit and relax, spend some time with your beloved ones, there’s a place I can recommend.

What?
It’s The Hill Hotel and Resort.

Where?
Located at Brastagi, about one hour+ drive from Medan city. It’s not really Brastagi city, it’s still Greenhill area, so not really far tho 😀

Don’t worry if you don’t stay at the hotel. You can still go inside but you have to pay Rp.100.000/ car for the entrance fee.

How..
is the view?
1455630299976One word: Amazing. This place has nice garden with a unique concept. It also has fish pond, gazebo in the middle of the beautiful swan lake, and also a mini zoo. You can even find flamingos, kangaroo, mandarin ducks, beautiful birds, swans.. There’s also a “jungle” and you will feel like wanting to explore the place itself.

Who..
should you go with?
Anyone. This place is nice if you want to get some fresh and cool air. Just sit and relax. But I still think it’s the best to spend your time here with your partner or with your little family.

Oh, you are a photography freak?
1455630327559This is also one of the places that you should visit. Every corner is just perfect for your eyes and lens. Colorful garden, vary kinds of beautiful animals, and nice scenery everywhere! P.s : I think this is a good place to do pre-wedding photos too.

Not forget to mention that this is a good place to paktor with your partner also! hehehe. The vibe is just perfect for it. Weather is perfect at night time as you can feel the cool wind blowing around you.

So, how interested are you to visit this place?
