After arrived to the hotel and the day already afternoon, so I decide to spend my time going to South Bali.

You also can rent a boat to go to Turtle Island, where the breeding and maintenance of the largest turtles in Bali.

After from beach, I continue to go to Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Cultural Park, where there is a statue of Vishnu riding Garuda bird (but this statue still not already finish created). This park is in Unggasan Hill – Jimbaran Bali. This statue is masterpiece Bali, I Nyoman Nuarta. In this park, you can see statue head of Vishnu and also head of Garuda bird.
