Banda Aceh, Indonesia is a very special place to visit. The people are genuinely polite and well-mannered. I call it the city of smiles and laughter. The historical sites must be visited while here.

I was very impressed with the majestic architecture of the grand mosque. It is beautifully designed and is a must for visitors to Aceh. However, maintenance should be looked into as the new, beautiful, grand mosque has began to show damage like taps, toilets which...More
