If you can drag yourself away from the beaches for a day, a visit to the Garuda Wisnu Kencana cultural park will offer a glimpse into Balinese culture and mythology. At the heart of the park is the enormous (and as yet unfinished) statue of Vishnu, which will eventually reach a majestic height of over 1,500 feet and will be visible from just about all over the island. The GWK is a popular venue for outdoor events and its lofty location on the top of a hill affords sweeping views over Bali. You can tour the GWK on foot, by shuttle, or on a Segway Tour, and highlights of your visit will include seeing Balinese dancers, watching the Balinese Parade (at 5:00pm each day), and dining at the authentic on-site restaurant.
