London Bridge is wellknown in the world, but i never go therre, I think Ampera bridge is also an awesome, a bridge that split up PALEMBANG, acapital city of SOUTH SUMATRA Province, into two parts, West and East Bank, we can see a maritime activities from the bridge, where Musi river flow under its huge Bridge, and also a beautiful Panorama of South Sumatra's Ground Zero from far away,The bridge has 1,777 meters in length, 22 m in width and 11,50 m in height and was built in April 1962 finished 1964, long ago, the middle parts of the bridge could be lift up allowing a big ship with maximum of 44,50 m in height passed the river under the bridge, However, since 1970 it could not be lift up anymore by the cost of Maintenance

MUSI RIVER The Busiest River r Traffic

The Length of Musi River is about 460 KM, it divided South Sumatra Province from The East to the West which consist of EIGHT Tributaries.
From Palembang downtown tourist would enjoy a motor boat taxi just to get around in a short distance of Musi river or you could take a speedy motor boat to Pulau Kemaro in only 15 minutes one way....Pulau Kemaro is a small island which located at the main stream of Musi River where you would find a big Chinese temple with a great Pagoda


Pasar 16 (Pasar Enam Belas) is one of big Market which located at the edge of Musi River and just 5 minutes in walking distance to the Ampera Bridge...Pasar Enam Belas was established since the era of Sriwijaya Kingdom which played an important role in Trading between the Kingdom of Sriwijaya with another country in South East Area ... Until now Pasar Enam Belas still played its important role in Trade and Business for Local peoples and also for attendants who visit Palembang
