Batak : Its Culture, Habits and History

A blog review

Batak is one of the many ethnic groups in Indonesia with region of origin is North Sumatra (one of Indonesia's province) and live mostly around Lake Toba (a famous tourism destination).

And this blog is all about this ethnic group. The culture, habits, history, songs, traditions, even famous people from this ethnic group, etc.

It's a recommended blog for those who want to know more about batak. And I think it's a should to visit blog for batak's people who lives outside their origin, so they don't forget their culture.
Especially for those born in foreign.
And the end, to maintain one of the cultural diversity of Indonesia still remain awake.....


But, unfortunately this blog doesn't provide the English version. Only in Bahasa Indonesia and Batak language with its dialect diversity.
