|After a day of good rest and recovery I was eager to ride again and wanted to see more of Palembang. Together with Andrew we went off early in the morning for another adventure.|
|By now we were familiar with the local LRT operating procedure and again we will stop at Cinde Station.|
|The mascots of Asian Games 2018, the bird of paradise “Bhin Bhin”, single-horned rhinoceros “Kaka” and Bawean deer “Atung”.|
|Still craving for Aloi's Bakmie where we went for one more round before we return to Kuala Lumpur. You will never find a Bakmie of this kind in KL.|
|My Bakmie with extras added in my serving.|
|We went back to Jalan Sayangan area to see more of it, the old traditional trading ground with many pull carts and in deed very human intensive way of working.|
|A man slaughtering chicken at the road side single handedly.|
|And this man selling live ducks kept in rattan cages.|
|Still lofting at Seberang Ilir of Palembang observing more activities by the river bank and overlooking the iconic Ampera Bridge.|
|There were several touts soliciting boat ride to Kemaro Island and the bigger boats are eatery restaurants serving local cuisine.|
Getting closer to Ampera Bridge as we need to ascend the bridge and cross Musi River to Seberang Ulu for Kampung Arab.
|We stumbled into this Kuan Yin Temple by accident, as we went to the river bank of Ulu Side of Palembang.|
|Locally it's known as Soet Goat Kiang 水月宮 or Chandra Nadi. One of the attractions of this temple is the old tomb of Ju Sin Kong a.k.a Apek Tulong, he was a Chinese Muslim and a special altar for him as he was regarded as the Guardian of Palembang.|
|This oldest Chinese temple has attracted many devotees from local and abroad like Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan.|
|Located at Jalan Benteng, 10 Seberang Ulu GPS : -2.992694, 104.766487, you can visit the temple by boat from the opposite of the river bank besides the land transport.|
|Still on the river bank of Seberang Ulu we headed towards Kampung Arab seeing many houses on silts as well as the pathways.|
|We missed a few turnings but we know Kampung Arab is just nearby our position.|
|The Islamic school is operated according to the Arabic practice where Friday is their rest day and Sunday is a school day.|
|According to their culture, a woman of Arab heritage can not marry a man of non Arab heritage. However, an Arab man can freely be married to a non Arab woman.|
Kampung Arab is good location for film making depicting old communal settlement with interesting and narrow alley.
|Our young and friendly guide giving a good commentary of Kampung Arab.|
Riding along Jalan KH Azhari cutting through the busy marketing spot as we headed for Kampung Kapitan as our next target in line.
|My faithful Oregon showing me the way and orientation of our ride.|
|Jalan KH Azhari goes straight and underneath of Ampera Bridge.|
|The Kapitan's house consisting of 3 houses, 2 for the family's usage and 1 for social purposes such as function or meeting with village people.|
|The house is elevated with architectural influences from the Dutch, Chinese and local Palembang.|
|One by one, the artwork took us to the inside of a run down warehouse sited near the river bank.|
|The exploration went deeper towards the bank of Musi River.|
Some of the murals seen in the interior part of Goedang Boentjit where we met a group of children having fun at the playground.
Time to wrap up our indulgence here and proceed to the next.
|Til we meet again Goedang Boentjit Kampung Mural.|
|A pond with a golden feature seen at the park with poor maintenance, this park needs a revamp in order to be able to attract more tourists into this spot.|
|It's another 5km we should be back to the hotel, love cycling along this water canal without any railing to protect motorists / cyclists.|
|Lorok Pakjo GPS : -2.981670, 104.730845|
|It was a good ride discovering more places of interest before we go back to Kuala Lumpur covering a distance of 30km for the day.|
|We left Palembang the next day in the early morning and it was surely a wonderful experience visiting this historical place in South Sumatra. I hope to come back again. Bye !|
