Banda Aceh Overview

Banda Aceh is located on the west tip of the island of Sumatera. It is well-known from when the most devastating tsunami in history hit this place back in December 26, 2004.

In general, Banda Aceh is a secluded place, great for those who love to travel to serene locations. You will feel the strong Malay and Islamic culture in this place but the people here still respect people with other religions as well.

The famous attraction in Banda Aceh is Great Mosque. It is still standing strong even though there was some damage to the building. People in Banda Aceh believe that God is protecting His holy place.
