South Sumatra

Trip Planner Asia  /  Indonesia  /  Sumatra  /  South Sumatra
(3.1/5 based on 1,400+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, nature, religious sites
Flat, fertile lowland crisscrossed by rivers covers most of South Sumatra, though rubber and palm oil plantations have replaced large swathes of the natural rainforest. Once the capital of Srivijaya, a vast Buddhist maritime empire that stretched as far north as modern-day Myanmar, today the province retains only a few archeological remnants of its illustrious past--though it does boast some prehistoric megalithic structures. Most tourism in South Sumatra centers instead on the area's nature parks, waterfalls, and hiking in the mountainous regions. The local people are known for their frank but hospitable manner. In the build up to your vacation in South Sumatra, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Indonesia vacation route planner.
