Palembang-going out with the girls--yayyay!

Posted by Fico , Tuesday, March 2, 2010 6:46 PM


After planning for only a week before leave i decide to stay over in Palembang before i went to Bangka island to visit my friend. I will stay over at my co worker house in Palembang.




After made appointment i leave Jambi with Ratu Intan shuttle car at 7am. The price of the shuttle is Rp 120. 000,- one way. I choose Ratu Intan sinply because it had shuttle leave for Palembang for every hour. And i book the shuttle a day before i leave. The travel time is approx 5 hrs with road condition is quite smooth. There are 4 other passenger beside me, and its a Toyota Innova car. We stop one time at a restaurant near Palembang for lunch, but i am not eating there. I arrive in Palembang nearly 1 pm.






I wait my friend at a gas station on BLK area, where the ojeg riders crowd me and ask where to go, and offer a lift. And they short of think i am a "bule" because i can't even say anything hahaha too many of them and too many questions. So i just keep in silent mode and they thought i didnt understand what they said.. lol ! its a pretty agressive ambush, but i am not surprise.

After a while my friend pick me up and we go to her house, for me to refresh my self and then we go for lunch.

For a Palembang taste we go to Empek-Empek A. Doha near University of Sriwijaya, the area called the hill or "bukit" in bahasa. We order "Model" and its very tasty! i also have what they call "Sanghai Ice" (ill upload the picture next time).



After we full we go to "Benteng Kuto Besak" and old fortres build by Dutch colonial. But none of my friends know the details of this fort. Its been use by the army, i could see the guards on the fort entrence, but i don't know either if we could get inside the fortress or not.

We go to the park on the other side of the road that show the big AMPERA bridge.
