Legend: perfect weather good tolerable bad very bad

Where should you go in Sumatra in may when it comes to the weather?

Remember:
The climate in Sumatra in may is tolerable across the board.

warning in may the weather is not the same depending on the city and regions of the country.

May is not the best month to travel to in Sumatra. 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. Nevertheless, if you don't plan a pool & relaxation trip in Sumatra but rather discovery of heritage or a trek, this climate may be good enough for you. In addition, there are certainly fewer tourists during this period.

But it is finally better than in Simpang, lake Toba, Berastagi, Dumai, Jambi City, Samosir, Pematangsiantar, Parapat and Gunungsitoli (Pulau Nias) and surrounding areas where the climate is very bad. It is not recommended to go to these areas this month.
