“Mind the Traffic !!!”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

A special view in Palembang. It is famous attraction there. It is not going to Palembang if you haven't gone to Ampera bridge. Mind the traffic by the way. I trapped in the middle of the bridge when I visited at the time people going home from the office.

“Better at night”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

The historical story is more interesting than the bridge itself. If you'd like to take a picture, the silhouette of the bridge is great.

“a place to sunbathe :)”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

if you visit Ampera bridge,u can sit on the edge but be carefull coz the thieves around you. i suggest u may cross the river by hire a boat "getek". the cost is negotiable. U can visit the temple in the kemaro island and looking around the community and home life "original palembang peoples" in the riverside. If you a foreigner with no local friends, very be carefull if you try to vist local market Pasar 16. Maybe someone will steal ur money or things :)
At night the place is studded the light.....

“Nice Hang out Place”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

When I visited this bridge, I park on place next to this bridge. It called Benteng Kuto Besak. Good view at night, so many light on the bridge, and during weekend, lot of young people gather here.
Must see during trip to Palembang
