I got a goosebump once I reached here. I sat by the river where there is some boat who was selling food on the deck. Definitely an Icon worth visiting!

Don't miss your picture with the bridge at the background. The Ampera Bridge is an authentic evident that you have visited Palembang! The best place to take a picture is from the floating RiverSide Restaurant. A romantic scenary will be at the night time--when the lights illuminate along the bridge ...

A variety of other places within close walking distance (Grand Mosque, Monpera, Benteng Kuto Besak, etc) so can spend a few hours wandering around taking photos and having lunch in one of the local eating places (although mostly average chain stores lacking any local flair, even a KFC in...

Take a seat at Kuto Besak fort, in the edge of Ampera Bridge. This is the best spot for you to spend the night with your lovely. The bright light came from the hundred of lamp around the bridge make it looks better than before. Don't forget to try the 'tek-tek' noodle sold by many seller ther. Enjoy!

The middle section used​ to move to let tall ship pass but that of course is no longer needed​. Common traffic jam. Somehow popular amongst​the local.

Though it is nice to expierence the culture of selfie... More
