Traveling outside the city or outside the island is usually better by plane or train. The goal is to save time and energy. But, some people prefer to drive. Besides being more flexible, driving a car when traveling between cities or between islands can provide an unusual experience.
Besides Java, Sumatra is the most exciting place to explore by using a private car. If you are from Java, then your journey will begin by crossing the Sunda Strait and anchored at the Port of Bakaheuni, Lampung, South Sumatra.
There are three Sumatra routes to choose from. You can pass the western crossing path if you want to enjoy the beach views along the way. If you want to enjoy the winding roads in the high mountains, waterfalls, tours and large lakes can pass through the middle and east lanes. All according to taste.
Prepare supplies, physical health, medicines, tourist equipment, GPS or a map of the trans-Sumatra routes. And most importantly, check the condition of the vehicle. Book accommodations at several points of the city. Even better if you can stay overnight at acquaintances and relatives, because a trip through Sumatra can take days. If you want to camp in a natural tourist location it will be even more exciting.
