it could be many times, i was visiting this city. Palembang, the main city of South Sumatera as known as Sriwijaya or "Pempek City".  In my short holiday, i have to know deeply about Palembang's Night life.  Yeah...i said "great...!!!"...there was not useless for this time, although i had to travel to Kertapati (Train Station of Palembang).  9 - 10 hours Only.

Palembang always be a hot city.  The temperature, atmosphere, and the person exactly (just kidding...hehehehe).  Palembang was a river city, therefore this city always be hot, let alone in dry season.  But it was ok for me, because i prefer a hot weather... Palembang had a big river, Musi.  Musi a huge and deep river, so i can find some boat and ship (like ferry) was crossing this river.

  Usually, some water transportations were used for tradding, shipping, and transportating too.  When i saw this river, i might imagine about The Sriwijaya Kingdom (lived at 7th–13th century).  Sriwijaya became a symbol of early Sumatera.  Sriwijaya made this river for main purposes, such as tradding and transportating.  Yeah, i can feel the power of this kingdom..hmmm...

When the evening hold me, i was not patient to visit the main bridge of Musi.  It names was Ampera.  It was a great bridge, with orange colour its body and some "discotique lamp" made my night surrounding it be colorful...hehehhe...I could see some visitors getting some photos. and the others were eating "submarine pempek"....  hmm...yummy...Pempek was a famous traditional food in Indonesia and Palembang may be proud because this city always used pempek as a main product and a favorite food to eat every day and every time...(hehehe...)...

I can't tell more about Palembang. I got a sleepy...hmmm...
