A scenic view of the bridge. The word AMPERA itself in Bahasa Indonesia should be explored and understood its real meaning. By then your trip is not complete without trying to understand its meaning. You should travel to and fro to get the feel of it.

The bridge it self is still iconic for Indonesian people as it was build and archichectured by its own first president,Soekarno. But dispite quite potentially attractive it is not well managed. The bank is dirty, the vicinity is slum. Be aware from pickpocket ing.

Went there several times. Best scenery at night with the lights and all. Lots of people hanging around and some local food stall. When I went there at night, the wind is strong so that many kids (and adults) playing kite.

One of the grandest bridges in indonesia, which is an icon of palembang. A popular site among the locals for an evening stroll. This bridge is a nice spot for photo taking. Considering that this is a landmark of palembang, i'd suggest the local government to pay special attention to security in the area. It was crowded with locals while... More

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.
