Voice of Travelers to Padang

Free trip to Padang

My first time in Asia happened to be in Padang. I enrolled for updates on ticket discounts from a travel agency I bumped into in a mall. A couple of weeks later I received an email to fill a survey from the company. Shortly afterwards they responded by offering me a free trip to Padang. They sent us scanned copies of the ticket and the hotel booking details. Attached to the email was a list of rules for the area. Ladies in particular are supposed to dress in long decent attire. The trip was great we used Air Asia as per the ticket details. The people were friendly, the food was rather too delicious. I will be back again.
