Last day in Medan; Leaving Taman Simalem Resort and leaving Medan

After so much fun and joy staying at Taman Simalem Resort for 2 nights and 2 days, the time has finally come for us to leave. It was also our last day in Medan, so we planned to drop by several places as we leave before catching our flight in the evening.

We have certainly had so much fun and memories to keep while we were here. From sightseeing around the mountains, playing games, catching sunrise, eating the local organic vegetables, playing the flying fox, etc.

We woke up in the morning around 7AM, and guess what?! The weather and sky outside was crystal clear. Finally! We were so excited that the sky finally cleared out, which means we could take better photos of the scenery and everything.

We tidied ourselves up first and packed our stuffs first before heading for breakfast. In case you might be curious on how our room looks like, here is a preview for you. The room has a full-sized window that is faced directly towards the Lake Toba and also a small balcony outside where you can sit and enjoy the breeze.


Look at how lovely the scenery is without all of the fog! Everything just looks so clear and awesome from this distance. This is the view that we got from outside of our balcony, we can directly see the edge of the lake and a small village beside it, also the mountain roads and landscape around the area. If only the sky has been clear since the first day we arrived..


After leaving the resort, we headed towards a Buddhist temple called Taman Lumbini, which is said to be the tallest and grandest pagoda in Indonesia, located not far away from Taman Simalem Resort. Taman Lumbini is covered in a bright gold color and it has a similar style with the Shwedagon Pagoda in Myanmar.



When we arrived there, the crowd is surreal. We had to queue up to get into the area, my friend from Medan even said that the place is a lot more crowded compared to any other days. I guess we picked the right date to visit then, just like how other people thought they did.


The weather was apparently too hot for us to stay under the sun, so we didn't stay there for too long and got back on the road shortly after. The traffic seems to be jammed somewhere in the middle so we had to take another alternative route, which helped us reach the city a lot faster.

Upon arriving back at Medan, our stomachs have growled so hard at us indicating that our hunger has reached the peak. We went to this famous restaurant called Afuk 88 Cha Sio Pui for their pork dishes. It was simply HEAVENLY! Words could not describe how satisfied and pleased I was with the taste of the foods served.

P.S. Sorry for the messy shot. We were too hungry to resist the temptation of digging in

We ordered a complete platter of the pork, it consists of the Chinese BBQ pork, roasted pork, and boiled egg. The BBQ pork was crispy and the soup served alongside of it was good as well. The price for the foods here is certainly not cheap, but it is definitely worth it!

After having our fill of the late lunch, we went directly to the airport and waited for our flight. It has been such an awesome time being here and I'm definitely looking forward to visiting back again. There is just so many more foods that I haven't tried yet!

See you next time!
