I love using the train in indonesia to travel. What other places can i visit using trains in indonesia? Many thanks..
So sorry, I never ride a train in Indonesia. Usualy we use car or plane.
Since I live in North Sumatera, so I know a little about train in here.
The train in here is connecting with the small town.
Sumatera capital citi is Medan, the train in Medan that just conect to small town like Binjai, Tebing tinggi, Sintar and other town.
But the tourist place that famouse in Sumatera is Berastagi and Lake Toba. All this place just can be connect with car, not train.
If you would like to visit Berastagi, so you have to stay in Medan citi and go there by car.
But if you would like to go to Lake Toba, you can catch a train from Medan then stop at Siantar then continue with car.
Since you are foreigner in here, so better hire a car with a big company like Toyota witch usually including driver around 60 to 70 usd for 1 day. It will be more safe.
But if you still want to use train, better take the VIP class, since there will be alot aff thief in the train, good luck about 8 years ago
