Graceful Culture in Medan, North Sumatra

Do you have to travel at work ?. I often have to travel while working. Here I will tell you about MEDAN City in Northern Sumatra. After the flight, I arrived at the international airport of Kuala Namu. The majority of the MEDAN is Batak tribe. And there are some tribes as Mandailings, Malay and Karo.  BATAK and Mandailings language is the language that is often used.

In the city of Medan I see something that I have never seen before. If in the area of  Java I saw BECAK driven by way of pedaling. People who drive BECAK behind. But in the city MEDAN , I saw BECAK driven with a motorcycle on the side.

Famous cultural of the Batak tribe is ULOS. Ulos generally has a shape like a scarf, but different materials and their use. Ulos specifically used in various ceremonies, be it a wedding celebration, a traditional feast and birth ceremonial. How to use also differs between men and women. Ulos usually still used by the Batak tribe’s traditional event even though they did not live in his hometown.
