Padang is a prosperous city and major ports, which has retained the atmosphere of a market town. It is the third largest city of Indonesia with a population of more than 300,000. South of Padang, the massive Kerinci-Strait, Nature Reserve is Indonesia's largest national parks sprawls across a 345 sq km stretch of Jungle Mountain dominated by the volcanic core of Mount Kerinci, which is Sumatra's highest mountain.
Padang has some pretty beaches. The most popular ones are located south of Padang. The beaches are good for swimming, boating or just watching fishing boats going out in the afternoon. On Sundays, the beaches are usually crowded with families and youngsters enjoying their weekly day off. On other days, however, we will find the beaches deserted.

Literary the cleanest city I've ever been in Indonesia. But it was before the major earthquake 3 years ago. Hope it has fully recover to the time when I was there. Also love the culinary! This place is packed with places that serve awesome local food and they're dirt cheap. But if you're not too adventurous and has low tolerance for spicy food, you may want to skip the local food and explore the friendly town instead.
