Dear Sir/ Mdm,
I neeed help in the following questions:
1.In Samosir Island, which hotel is located near shops , restaurant and backpackers area where most of the happenings occur?
2. How far is the Medan airport to Medan town where where are many hotel and hostel. How long is the travelling time in taxi from the airport?
1. You can try Toledo Inn/Hotel. You can try to book this through agoda or asiarooms.
2. The airport is very close to town. Do be careful though when getting a taxi from the airport. They hardly want to use taxi meters and prefer to haggle on price which of course unless you know the distance to the hotel then they will charge unreasonable price. If there happens to be a taxi with a label blue bird group, then you can use this as they use taxi meters.
