Taman Rekreasi Rengas Condong
(Small Family Park in the City of Muara Bulian)
This is a small and simple park in the City of Muara Bulian (Jambi Province of Indonesia). It’s an exceptionally nice park for local people who want to spend an hour or two with their children, or a place for teens to hang out. It’s an exceptionally clean park (absence of trash), but with no unique attraction we wouldn’t recommend it for tourists from outside the area.
The park’s exact location can be found by clicking this link.
Below is a video we made of the park.

Golfing in Jambi

We are not avid golfers, in fact, we’ve only been golfing 2-3 times—excluding miniature golf. Knowing there are golfers that may come to Jambi as tourists from time to time, we thought we would prepare this information on their behalf.
The City of Jambi has one 9-hole golf course on the west side of the city. It can be found by clicking this link. We found this course to be very well maintained and the atmosphere to be quite relaxing.

Purple Mangosteen / Manggis
Purple Mangosteen is known in Indonesia as manggis.
Sitting in the roadside markets the fruit doesn’t have an appealing exterior, but don’t let that exterior fool you. We’ve found manggis to be extremely sweet and enjoyable.

(Competitive Fishing Location)
Pemancingan Lesehan Adit, located in the Village of Bajubang Darat.
We previously wrote about Pemancingan R & R and Pemancingan Telaga Jati, two competition fishing locations in the City of Jambi. We recently learned of two other locations where fisherman can go to compete, and both fishing ponds are located within a 1 mile distance of each other. One being in the village of Bajubang Darat and the other in the Village of Sumber Sari (on the road between Tempino and Muara Bulian). These two fishing locations operate very similar to the fishing pools in the City of Jambi that we mentioned above. With the villages of Bajubang Darat and Sumber Sari being located within a 1 mile radius, these fishing pools are easy to find—just ask anybody along the main road for their exact locations.
