Voice of Travelers to Palembang

Family vacation to Palembang

We finally decided to take our family trip to Palembang in Indonesia. It was our first time in Asia. We got the return ticket via Singapore Airlines. The service on the plane to Palembang was sub standard. We arrived in Palembang after 10 hours of jetlag and one stop in Dubai. It was noon when we arrived. The weather was sunny and the place was rich in culture and diversity. We settled in the Arista Hotel Palembang who welcomed us with a traditional Asian drink. The next few days were full of sightseeing in Palembang and learning about this ancient city's culture.

Honeymoon to Palembang

Hi my name is Diana. My husband arranged the whole trip to Palembang I knew about the destination only after being handed my air ticket. I was rather skeptical about the trip after being ambushed by my husband at the airport. We boarded the plane by Garuda Airlines who had ticket offers. The return ticket was by Saudia Airlines. When the airline discovered we were newlyweds they upgraded our economy ticket to first class ticket. My husband had planned a series of places to visit in Palembang that kept us busy for the next couple of days. The highlight of the trip was eating in the kaya boat by the rivers.
