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.

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.
