The method in this study is descriptive qualitative. Descriptive because this study aims to describe the phenomenon of attractions in a systematic, factual, and accurate manner regarding the facts and the relationship between phenomena. Based on the results of the analysis of each tourist attraction, the Batanghari River has a high level of potential category with most of the river attractions that can be optimized are swamp buffalo attractions, and the beauty of river trunks that have the highest value. The results show that the supporting factors of the Batanghari river tourism object have not been well promoted, in the case that the area is not far from the city center, can be reached within 90 minutes from the city of Palembang.
