The weather in Langsa, Palembang, Lac Maninjau, Tanjungpinang, Tebingtinggi, Gunung Leuser National Park, Bandar Lampung, Kisaran, Batam, Bukit Lawang, Metro, Bukittinggi, Payakumbuh, Sibolga, Padangsidempuan, Padang City, Lhokseumawe, Pekanbaru, Medan, Bengkulu, Takengon, Banda Aceh, Pariaman and Sigli is OK but just acceptable. The sun is not there all the time and you may be faced the rain often.
