Lubuklinggau is a non-descript town on the Trans-Sumatran highway. Few tourists ever come here, though it is within striking distance of Kerinci-Sablat National Park, with its rare fauna and flora. The reason we came was to catch the train to Palembang, as Lubuklinggau is the end of the line.
If you are staying in town overnight, The Smart Hotel is a good, new business hotel with wifi in public areas, a good Chinese restaurant which serves beer and comfortable rooms. The staff were friendly and helpful. Overall, a pretty good bet for this neck of the woods.
