It took about 5 hours driving from Medan Polonia Airport to Lake Toba. The journey was long and boring but when i saw the lake, i immediately forgot about the tiredness. The lake is extremely huge with greenish blue lake water. We really enjoyed the ferry trip from Parapat to Samosir Island. It is a good way to see the lake nearer. The water near to jetty was a bit oily but the rest are still very clean. Some local ladies were selling boiled eggs and steamed peanuts on the ferry. I tried the boiled egg and found that it was quite different from the eggs that I normally eat. Must try! We stayed one night in a lake side hotel in Samosir Island. The next day, we visited Batak Houses before leaving the island. Then, we proceeded to Sipiso-piso Waterfall, which is another attraction of Lake Toba.
