We were invited by local newspaper to experience Musi river cruise where we also could see Ampera Bridge' magnificent view during sunset. It was beautiful. However a few minutes before the sunset it was scorching hot!. The river is not the cleanest river in the country so expect the air would be a bit smelly.

If you visit Palembang, just don't forget to see this historical landmarks; which also become the icon of Palembang city. Based on my experience, it is better to see this bridge at night. Because, you'll also see the beauty of bridge's architecture with sparkling lights.

Come to this bridge at night is better. But still crowded with car and motor passing by. Sometimes you will get the traffic jam around the market. You can see a Musi view from the bridge. It's not complete when you come to Palembang without visiting the Ampera bridge.

Good to view the bridge both in the day and at night. Very colourful at nights with lights that keep changing. Only setback is that you cannot park your car on the bridge to snap any photo. Buy your Palembang T shirts near the bridge at night. Bargain and ask around. Visit the museum surroundings at night. .

Along the Musi River across which the majestic Ampera Bridge spans, are rows of semi-permanent food stalls selling local delicacies such as pindang patin, pindang tulang, gado-gado, and the list goes on.
