Silversea Luxury Cruises To Banda Aceh

Banda Aceh, the capital of Banda Province with a population of over 200,000 people, was severely hit by a tsunami in 2004. Since this tragedy, the community has resurged both in terms of cultural revival and building. The Blang Padang Park and Tsunami Museum were constructed as memorials to all the nations that helped Aceh after the terrible earthquake and tsunami. The city was originally built in the late 15th century and was a stop for hajj pilgrims traveling by sea to Mecca. View more

It has been a thriving and strategic port in the Indian Ocean ever since. Today, it is possible to get around the city in a motorized cycle rickshaw known locally as a ‘becak’. Popular destinations in the city include the Baiturrahman Grand Mosque originally built in the 12th century and perched on a stunning reflective pool, and the Aceh Museum, likely one of the oldest in Indonesia.
