Formerly named Bung Karno and then changed to Ampera (Amanat Penderitaan Rakyat). This bridge is the landmark of Palembang. quite old bridge. Better to see it at night because the lighting makes it so much more beautiful. it can be seen from so many spot but you must ignore the not-so-clean river.

This bridge is a leegendary bridge that becoming of landmark of Palembang. Closed from the bridge there are a crowd place call benteng. You can take time just to have a seat and see the bridge and river. You may also take restaurant meals around the benteng. Was a pleasant visit to Palembang Landmark.

I stay at Semarang where the traffic jam rarely. It needed almost an hour crossed the bridge. Yes, it has a beautiful view from a distance, but if you in a hurry, please avoid busy hours.

It is more enjoyable to come to the bridge during the night. No scorching sun, and it's more fun to see local people hanging around the pier with the view of the bridge being lit by lights.
