“Must visited site in Palembang at night...”
Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

Ampera bridge is the most notable landmark in Palembang. Although it' s not the biggest or longest bridge in Indonesia, Ampera Bridge is a symbol of Indonesian development at that time. So it is its historic value made Ampera is worth to visit.

As a bridge only, Ampera is not an amazing one. But crossing Musi River and connected 2 part of Palembang city, Ampera has a more value rather than steel structure only. And the best time to apreciate and enjoy Ampera is at night. No better time.

At night lights will lit Ampera Bridge and turn the old steel structure to be an artistic installation. Visitor can enjoy its beauty from Benteng Kuto Besak Plaza, an openpublic area near Ampera. Just sit down at the bench on the promenade or take a seat in a boat restaurant to take beautiful scene ofAmpera. And visitingPalembang is visiting Ampera Bridge.
