Krui is our artery to the outside world. Our largest town in the area, here you will find markets, stalls and if your timing is right you may even stumble across a festival, cultural dances and traditional music.
South Sumatra is well known as a highly rated fishing destination and is rated amount anglers as some of the best waters for targeting pelagic species like dollys and tuna right up to your very own marlin.

We can arrange charters depending on availability.
Depending on how much you drink or shop it is best to bring between $300-500 in cash. But make sure you change your money to RP before you get to Sumatra.
There are ATMs available at various locations, but please let your banks know your travel plans before you leave your country.
Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park
Sumatran Tiger, Sumatran rhinoceros and the Sumatran Elephant all call the Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park home.
The park is 3,568 km2, and spans across 3 provinces – Lampung, Bengkulu, and South Sumatra. Together with Gunung Leuser and Kerinci Seblat national parks it forms a World Heritage Site, Tropical Rainforest Heritage of Sumatra.
With so much area to explore why not grab a guide, put on your jungle boots and try your hand at spotting one of the many endangered species here in South Sumatra.
