After Mirissa we travelled back to Colombo in a taxi with Diamo and Em where we stayed for the night before taking a flight to Kuala Lumpur. KL has been a good hub for our travels around SE Asia.
From KL we had a short flight across the Malaka Straight to Medan.
Indonesia is the final country on our trip and also our honeymoon destination. Many thanks to everyone for our wedding money, we are grateful that you funded our trip. All this travelling is tough and exhausting…I’m so glad we finally get a holiday haha.
We stayed a night in Medan (which is nothing special, just another dirty, polluted Asia city) and then took a taxi to Bukit Lawang, passing many palm oil plantations on the way. Bukit Lawang is on the edge of the Gunung Lesuer National Park but this is where the palm oil plantations stop and the protected area begins. It’s the place to go to see orangutans!
