“Landmark Palembeng Bridge”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Bulit by the Japanese during WW2. Used to be able to be raised up to allow tall ships to pass underneath but some *%"** folks have been stealing the bridges's metal cables and now it can't be moved up and down anymore. Best seen at night with the lights on.

“Nice Sighteseeing”
Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

It's a huge bridge red coloured, unfortunately the paint looks pale enough now. Seeing nice view from Benteng Kuto Besak, morever when the night's coming because of colourful light at bridge. Try to have experience river-boating to Kamaro Island and nice view along the river provided. Go there in the morning or in the evening, I suggest about 3.30 pm, when sun's coming down it's good to take a picture around River Harbour. Good!

“Stupid Big Bridge”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Have you been to San Fran Golden Gate Bridge? Have you been to Hongkong Bridge? Well Congratulations! You don't need to go to this miniscule, poorly maintained and sad excuse of a bridge! You'd have seen better bridges, and this abysmal rendition of what the Palembang government regard as a tourist bridge, would have conjured a sense of pity to visitors, of what the government had tried to emulate, but failed miserably.

It's a rickety old bridge held by a series of strings in the middle of a muddy, choppy water, sometimes frequented by motorcycle thugs, or couples who turn the bridge into an improptu romantic rendesvous, If you want to see Palembang's Harley biker wannabes race in a darwinian exhibition, or like voyeurism in general then by all means go here!

“Average attraction”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Since there are not so many tourist attractions in Palembang, I should have rated this sight with 5-stars. But after all it is just a bridge, nothing special to it at all. You may go up there, enjoy "the view" or just watch the bridge from the distance... Much more interesting it is, to go by boat on the river!
