Indonesia: Pekan Baru (Riau)-Bukit Tinggi-Padang (West Sumatera)

Sumatera, Indonesia time = UTC +7
Indonesia currency = IDR (Rupiah)
Currency rate = 0.0285 (e.g IDR1k = RM0.285)
Language = Indonesian

Plz note actual date went to Riau-West Sumatera was on 11-14 May 2014. The expenses stated here was for 2 pax.

As most of my previous journeys were arranged by travel agent, however this time we did it by ourselves from ticket, hotel, meal and itinerary. Hence, for the first time I depict myself as a traveler instead of tourist. Not so called traveler as we rent a car together with the driver (locals called driver as Supir). We booked AirAsia air tickets a few months earlier and cost us RM236 returned for both (expense1). We were advised to reach KLIA2 earlier cuz it was newly air terminal which was officially opened recently on 9 May 2014 and some area still ongoing construction.

We booked Hotel Benteng at Bukit Tinggi area and cost us RM288 for 4D 3N per room (expense2). We found this hotel at Agoda and we interested to accommodate this hotel cuz free wifi services and breakfast provided. Plus it was quite cheap and a bike rental services were provided.
