Venice of Sumatra

The history of the major port city of Palembang dates back a thousand years to the highly advanced Sriwijaya civilization, which ruled vast swathes of Southeast Asia. Today, relics from this era--in museums and around the city--remain one of the highlights of a visit here. Sightseeing in Palembang is a breeze thanks to the city's efficient bus system, among the most punctual and regular in the whole country. The river running through Palembang draws locals and tourists alike, offering several spots for relaxing along its banks and enjoying a gentle breeze. Palembang is in South Sumatra.
