The capital of Jambi province is a busy river port about 155km from the mouth of the Sungai Batang Hari. The main reason to visit is for its large temple complex at Muara Jambi, 26km downstream from Jambi – the single biggest attraction on Sumatra’s east coast. Jambi also has a pleasantly low-key and friendly vibe, especially around the riverfront food stalls that kick off at dusk and look out at the city's abstract pedestrian bridge.
