A huge cultural park at Bali that newly build. You can watch the great Vishnu statue that enormously build. It is advise to take a tour bus since this place is huge to explore by foot. They also offer you with food that serve in buffet at the top of the park. You can enjoy the food there, of course it's come in a package that you can ask when you buy entry ticket. Amazing place to visit at daytime.

GWK was amazing. An extremely grand park for tourist attractions and the view from the top is very soothing . You can see the coastline near Kuta beach very clearly. We saw their cultural dance as well. A very nice place it is, offering a lot to explore. A huge-huge park with good restaurants with the view. The good thing is that you can pay and opt for their shuttle services to explore the entire park.
