1. Bali Uluwatu: Garuda Wisnu Kencana Entrance Ticket

Rising from the rugged hills of Bali’s Bukit Peninsula, the magnificent Garuda Wisnu Kencana statue watches over the island. The towering statue is Bali’s most iconic landmark and depicts the Hindu God Wisnu and the mythical eagle, Garuda. Designed by renowned Balinese artist Nyoman Nuarta, the Garuda is the national emblem of Indonesia, an enduring symbol of freedom from oppression. Soaring to a height of almost 400 feet, this is one of the tallest monumental statues in the world. The statue makes a stunning central feature of GWK Cultural Park, a fascinating 60-hectare cultural park that provides a glimpse into Bali’s heritage through cultural performances, folk tales, and immense sculptures. Enjoy panoramic island views as you explore the park on foot or by Segway. Indulge in traditional Indonesian cuisine, immerse yourself in a land steeped in mythology, or plan your next big event in one of GWK’s epic venues.

I really enjoyed this tour. One of the highlights was Nusa Dua Beach, which was not overcrowded and was heavenly beautiful!!! Personally, I don't find the GWK monument as beautiful as, for example, the statue of Christ in Rio de Janeiro, but that's a matter of taste. The GWK site is super interesting and beautifully designed. Overall the day was great and I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone vacationing in Bali.

We had an amazing experience that was mostly because of our tour guide Dewa. He made our trip the most fun and took us to the best photo locations while giving us good insights into the balinese culture. The views were breathtaking and definitely worth the money. We would definitely recommend booking this trip!
