Pasca Tsunami 2004, moreless one third of Banda Aceh City area were lost and becoming un-useable land. Especially, along the coastal area and lowland area. Population of Banda Aceh left were predicted in 2005, about 198,000 people (one hundred and ninety-eight thousand) from 230,000 people (two hundred and thirty thousand) in 2003. (Source: BPS). It is the same amount of population of one sub-county (kecamatan) in Jabodetabek. But now, 3 (three) years after Tsunami, the population of Banda Aceh is rapidly increased. Many outcomer came from Java (Jakarta, Bandung, etc), foreigner from all countries, and workers from other provinces in Sumatera and Java to make fortune here. New Banda Aceh will come soon……..
