Overview

Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Cultural Park is a ± 60 ha area of cultural park located in Ungasan, Badung Regency or about 10-15 minutes driving from Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport. With a future plan of ±120-meter tall and 64-meter width statue of Garuda Wisnu as its main attraction, GWK Cultural Park boasts one of the largest artistic masterpiece and most astonishing works of arts ever created in Indonesia’s art history, which reflects the strong values of one of Indonesia’s inherited local cultures.

Recommended by the driver who took us round for a half-day trip. The statues are impressive but not enough to make you come all the way out, however, if you are out anyway then no harm to pop in if you don't mind the entrance...More

The place is well located with great view in the surrounding. But the big statue is not finished yet and it's been years the development is abandoned. Standard experience for tourist visiting this place. Many other better options in the surrounding area.

We went with our six year old and loved the local dance performances. Our kid liked the animation movie of Garuda the most. The place has good scenic views of the city from the top.

You can go there by cab/taxi for sure, but to leave, I didn't see taxi waiting in GWK, maybe you can rent a car for half or fullday and you can go anywhere else from GWK, thats what I did.

You can complete it in less than 2 hours. But if you enjoying the show at amphitheatre, they show different title every hour.
