A quick tour through Medan
Medan was only a quick stopover: we had half a day to explore the city so I didn’t capture more than only a few impressions. There are many old buildings in Medan that still retain their Dutch architecture. The peranakan Tjong A Fie Mansion was definitely worth a visit as well.
