Buy your Palembang T shirts near the bridge at night. Bargain and ask around. Visit the museum surroundings at night. .

Not that spectacular. Nice view at night and to take a pictures. And not much to do except you can rent a boat to cross the river to small island (?) And the river color was really chocolate and lots of big ships crossing and stopped by the river. A bit scary.
