If you want to have a good memorable photograph (when you have the skill and tools for taking picture in low light) come to this bridge at night.

We sail on a boat under the bridge, quite an experience. You can see the local who lives nearby the river and still utilize the river as their essential water supply. A very interesting trip to learn about the local/

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.
