Things to do in Palembang.

Will be going to palembang for 3 days in june.

I'm wondering what there is to do there. I know there's not much sightseeing. I'm more interested in markets and learning about the lical culture, tradition and daily life.

Any suggestions?

Has anyone been to the sriwijaya archeological park? Is it worth a visit? I hear it is not well maintained, but wouldnt mind visiting if there was something unique to be seen there.

Palembang is nice city, especially for culinary. There is so much delicious food there. There are pempek, martabak, pindang, e.t.c if u want to go palembang u can go by plane, until sultan mahmud badarudin airport, u can call taxy, or u can wait for busway. Taxy is about 300000rupiah its about 30 usdolar, n busway its about 5000rupiah or 0.5 usdolar. I think the better u can stay near by masjid agung or jembatan ampera, theres some hotel there, like sriwijaya hotel, hotel duta, etc. All the thing in indonesia is cheaper than sgp,or malay. With 300000 rupaih or 30 usdolar u can rent car and walk around palembang. There are ampera bridge, bkb, pulau kemaro, masjid agung, etc and for the food, all of them is delicious n cheap, lime pempek is just 0.4 usd, martabak, bakso, sate, etc just about 2 dollar.
