Although I have compiled quite a few references to sources of tourist information for South Sumatra’s Palembang area, you are going to have to be tolerant — many of these websites use atrocious English. I can never tell if it is because whomever composed the information has an inferior grasp of English composition; or if it is due to article spinning.
My personal opinion is that the problem is likely a combination of both factors — badly written material that has also been spun.
To illustrate what I am speaking of, the first website linked to just below has statements like this:
- As well as the typical foods that pempek Palembang, Palembang also has tourism potential is not inferior to other cities in Sumatra.
- Here also can be found a tomb is the tomb of a princess Palembang. This princess has its own story, that she was married to the son of the king of China with the dowry in the form of 9 jars of gold, but in the end the couple threw himself into the river and drowned.
- Forest Park Punti Kayu pine forest wood is the largest city in Indonesia.
It has been my extensive experience that this sort of poor English structure is a common feature of websites offering information about Indonesia. I used to just ignore such websites and omit offering them as reference material; but often they are such a dominant presence insofar as sheer numbers are concerned that it becomes almost impossible to locate sufficient websites that do not have this sort of fractured English.
So it boiled down to either giving the reader few reference resources for information that might interest a potential tourist; or else just hoping for the best, and including the suspect material because such websites do at least offer a variety of information that otherwise is not possible to assemble.
Please understand that I am not criticizing the sincere author who may have limited English as his or her second language. Rather, I am condemning the prevalence of articles bearing such tortured, spun English that it has become nearly incomprehensible — a prime example will be the second reference below, with paragraphs such as this:
- Palembang is a beautiful and fascinating city. now kembalii will address contained in the tourist city of Palembang ddan surroundings, never an endless stream of his talk about the city that is often dii pempek call it, everyone and never visited.
It is impossible for me to believe that someone — no matter how poor his or her grasp of English may have been — sat down and deliberately created that paragraph with a sincere heart brimming with noble intent. That paragraph is garbage — there can be no other judgment.
This is why I counsel tolerance for much of what follows.
As well as the typical foods that pempek Palembang, Palembang also has tourism potential is not inferior to other cities in Sumatra. What are the tourist attractions in Palembang which must be visited? 1. Ampera Bridge.
