If you are thinking about teaching in Indonesia, then Teaching English in Padang may not be at the top of your list, but that should no longer be the case.
Under the Dutch, Padang was developed as one of the main harbour towns in the Dutch East Indies. The main attraction of the city is the colourful Dutch old town and harbour on the Muaro River. Padang’s historic Chinatown is also a big draw for tourists. Padangese cuisine is renowned for its spicy curry and rice dishes and is beloved throughout the Southeast Asian region.
Padang is one of the cleanest cities in Indonesia. It has received the “Adipura” award (for cleanest and greenest city) several times. It is the largest city on the West coast of Sumatra.
