When come to Palembang, you have to pay attention to your purse or your personal thing... take care of the rider when they follow you behind....

“Ampera Bridge -day and night view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

Good to view the bridge both in the day and at night. Very colourful at nights with lights that keep changing. Only setback is that you cannot park your car on the bridge to snap any photo. Buy your Palembang T shirts near the bridge at night. Bargain and ask around. Visit the museum surroundings at night. .

“beware of daylight robbery”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

Along the Musi River across which the majestic Ampera Bridge spans, are rows of semi-permanent food stalls selling local delicacies such as pindang patin, pindang tulang, gado-gado, and the list goes on. We had lunch there one day and the price was very reasonable. The following day we tried another stall for variety. Also we took pity on the guy shouting away inviting people to his stall and there was no one eating there. Little did we know that we would be in for an unpleasat surprise! A simple lunch of rice for three came up to rp300,000! That's close to RM100! Even the seafood dinner that we had at one of the posh malls in Palembang came up to only less than RM50 after conversion. If that's not daylight robbery I don't know what is! So visitors beware! Although we did not experience any pickpocketing in Palembang, our pockets were picked in a different way!
