Boating motor it may be a new experience for visitors from the region who have no water provided. Kids are sure to love it. The distance of the journey from the base motor boat (under the Ampera bridge) is not too far away so that his journey is not boring. Not the city of palembang, nature tours, so no need to compare it with the existing tourist areas in the archipelago. That is, do not berekspektasi there is something extraordinary in the Pulo,.

Where to stay in Palembang

Unusually for a city of its size, Palembang's budget-friendly options are not as plentiful as other destinations within Indonesia. By contrast, you'll find luxury hotels ranging from three- to five-star in good supply here. Offering large banquets, Wi-Fi, ensuite bathrooms, indoor swimming pools, and other recreational facilities, some of these hotels rise to an impressive 18 stories, so accommodations should not be hard to find within a midrange to upscale budget. For more affordable lodgings, explore the few backpacker-friendly hostels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses.
