Next late September to mid October I'll be travelling to Sumatra from Singapore. The round trip will be Batam - Jambi by boat, then by bus to Kerinci (Sungai Penuh), few days in the park, then down to Lampung (Way Kambas and Danau Ranau), then up to Palembang and back to Sekupang by boat. Advice will be appreciated on:
-boat fare/schedule from Sekupang to Jambi and from Palembang to Sekupang
-bus route and schedule from Jambi to Sungaipenuh
-the Ulu Batang Asai and the surrounding villages
-spot in Kerinci where the Rafflesia is supposed to flower this period
-the rainforest trek around Danau Tujuh

Jambi cannot reached by boat, you have to go from Batam to Kualatunggal first and then take a bus to Jambi.

From Bandar Lampung to Palembang there is a train. From Palembang to Sekupang by boat is a ??,
I don't think there are any boats.

To Bangka is possible.

There are flights from Palembang to S'pore. Immigration on Palembang Airport is great fun, the officer asked me for a present, so I gave him a newspaper I had just bought. He understood the fun. After the cap in my passport I walked out of the airport to have a meal, so very relaxed there
