Back in 2012 when my wife (then fiancee) was pregnant with our first daughter, we headed from KL over to Medan for a short couple of nights holiday. Medan was absolutely fantastic and despite its reputation for being somewhat boring and dull, we found it to be an enthralling and beautiful mix of many different styles of architecture, extremely friendly people and some absolutely fantastic food. The Tip-Top bakery has been operating since 1934 and is well worth a visit to step back in time to see Dutch colonial influence. I’d no doubt love to go back there sometime and once again visit its old world charm. Was also quite funny to see my pregnant fiancee be the only person who didn’t wake up when our plane get struck by lightning on the way back to KL as we flew through an insanely scary storm!
