It is rarely... But if you're there when the bridge's open up to allow ships to pass, you're in for a treat, but if not, the light all over the bridge that can be seen after the sun's fully down is it's own treat. Very beautiful, definitely worth it. Ah.... I've been told to watch out for my belongings by... More

You haven't been in Palembang when you're not seeing this bridge. The city is evolving now, preparing for Palembang Emas 2018 and Sea Games in the same year.You can use public transport or taxi for a ride. Jembatan Ampera is still their trademark, a little bit identic with Chao Praya riverside in Bangkok.

I visited the place twice in my visit to Palembang. They said it has nice view on the night, but I only have chance to see it in daylight. The first trip on the bridge, I use small boat to enjoy the view across the river and for me the view is not really impressive. The second trip, I try... More

Ampera Bridge has been the most famous place in Palembang that you have to see during your visit. It's good to go there during a day but perfect in a night with the amazing night view with lights. Around the bridge you could find a lot of restaurants and some Palembang's attractions as well.

Visit this place at night, and you will get beautiful scene. Ampera's Bridge Light. Better visit Ampera using motorcycle, cause parking area for mobile too far. One more thing, I prefer take picture and enjoy Ampera's Bridge from Benteng Kuto Besak.

Nice Place to Hang Out at Night Time. The bridge is decorated with fabulous light. Road Side Food is available for those adventurous enough to eat like locals.
