Padang is the capital city of the Indonesian province of West Sumatra, and the largest city on the western coast of Sumatra.
Population: 1,015,000 (2022), it is the 16th most populous city in Indonesia.
Padang is widely known for its Minangkabau culture, cuisine, and sunset beaches.
The traditional people of Padang are the Maningkabau, known also as the Minang. They are nearly all Muslim, and much of Islam around Padang is quite conservative.
The people here are very hospitable, but there are areas where tourists are not recommended to go without a local guide. “Bad boys” specialize only in tourists, they do not touch their own.
