Travel from San Francisco to Jakarta, Indonesia! Then onto Sumatra (also known as Sumatera).

Located in North Sumatera province, Toba Lake is the world’s largest volcanic lake. Here is the birthland of Batak, one of Indonesia’s indigenous people.

We learned about Batak cultures and tradition at TB Silalahi Center and Batak Museum, which are next to each other at the south shores of the incredible Toba Lake.

This is part of Trip of Wonders 2017 hosted by Ministry of Tourism Indonesia.

    12:00, thats true, almost all indonesian have different accent in speak bahasa indonesia. you can trace ethinicity by the accent. javanese, slow n quite but very bold and very bass. sundanese, slow, flowing, treble no bass sound and cannot say F and V, like, FANTA sundanese said "PANTA" and VESPA, said PESPA, batak very fast and loud just like angry people shouting and yelling.
