The people were the best thing about Jambi. I met so many friendly people who genuinely were interested to meet me and have a chat (practice their English beyond the usual "Hello Mister").
The kampungs on the other side of the river were wonderfully clean (not a scrap of rubbish to be seen) and full of traditional houses. Muaro Jambi was fascinating - a little difficult to get to but well worth the 3500 rupiah (35 cents) entry fee!
Jambi is a small town and very traditional oriented. Most of their life are as a farmer and fishermen and few of them are doing bussiness
Not much to do in Jambi. I was here for family friend's wedding. The only highlight is eating pempek at Pempek Asiong.
Not much to do not much to say about this city, even the taxi drivers cannot tell the city sightseeing available.
All is about 2 hours drive to an island or 8 hours ddrive to mountaineous resort
Jambi is the small city without any entertainment. Its suitable for those who worked is mining or plantation
