Treasuring North Sumatra Railway (KA Sumatra Utara Aceh : Divre 1) – Bandar Khalifah Railway Station

Bandar Khalifah railway station is one of active station in Regional Division 1 (North Sumatra & Aceh) Indonesian Railways. It is the first railway station if we go from Medan city to the East, and serve the area of Percut Sei Tuan, especially Tembung city. Located around 9 km from Besar Medan City Railway Station.

Ahmad Yani Park, Medan

These are photos of the greenly Ahmad Yani Park in Medan, my home town. Named after our Indonesian hero who sacrificed himself during revolution era in 1965 to tackle the communist rebels in Indonesia.

I went there in 2011 with my nephews, uncle, and cousin to enjoy some relaxing and refreshing air just in the middle of the city. With so many green plants and high trees added with great landscape design, it is a very good place to take our wheel off and spend some rest. I heard that last month the city’s government have added some children and sports tools to make the park more enjoyable. That’s great
