Sumatra or Thailand? HELP!


We are visiting SE Asia this fall for 2 months. We are visiting Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. We need advice for 1 segment of our trip.

West Sumatra beaches/culture or Thailand beaches/culture?

Thank you!

You can fly direct Jakarta Padang, loads of operators, Garuda, Merpati etc (or fly to Pekanbaru from Jakarta and go overland through Bukkitinggi) - the latter allows you to see the countryside and experience some culture etc.
