After had breakfast and checked out, we went to Minangkabau Documentation Center (PDIKM=Pusat Dokumentasi dan Informasi Kebudayaan Minangkabau) at Padang Panjang. Locals marked this center as Minang Villages. This center such a museum and the best place for those needs to acquire informations and histories of Minangkabau tribe. Not to worry cuz beside the books and replicas, there is an officer may help you clarify and explain any queries. Plus, visitors may rent the Minang apparel here as well.

The city of Padang Panjang is located at the foot of Mount Tandikat. Mount Tandikat has historical volcano activities and it is a twin volcano with Mount Singgalang. According to locals, the final eruption was on 1924 and uncertain on the next eruption. Some locals had climbed up this mountain and share their experiences at the crater and the peak.

Doa Harian di Bulan Ramadhan (Hari ke-13 dan 14)

Indonesia: Bukit Tinggi, West Sumatera (Day 3rd)

After breakfast, we visited Taman Panorama Lubang Jepang (Japanese Tunnel Panorama Park) juz nearby our hotel [Entrance fees IDR10k (RM3) for 2pax (expense9)]. Visitors may go through the tunnel by map stated on the wall at the tunnel entrance or with assistance of the local guide. Normally the local guide charged RM5 per pax if tour group, however only both of us so the local guide charged us RM10 per pax and we paid RM20 for 2 pax (expense10). The guide accepted both IDR and MYR currency.

This tunnel was built as Japanese bunker by Indonesians under forced labour (as slave) by Japanese military in 1942 till 1945. Inside this tunnel, there are area to store ammunition, meeting rooms, prison, torture room, the Romusha (forced labourer) dining room, kitchen, surveillance room, ambush room, and the escape gate. When walking along the tunnel, it was cold ambiance, quiet, creepy and sorrowing surrounding.
