How to get to Sumatra

Sumatra at 473,481 km2 and a population of about 50 million is the largest entirely Indonesian island and the sixth largest island in the world. (Two larger islands, Borneo and New Guinea, are shared between Indonesia and other countries.) Sumatra’s biggest city is Medan.

If you are flying from Europe or the US you can fly to Medan with a stopover in Kuala Lumpur, Singapore or Jakarta. Air Asia offers some very cheap flights from Kuala Lumpur.
