There are a few abandoned treasures in Bali, but the largest, and best in my book, is Taman Festival Park – and abandoned amusement park overlooking the ocean.
I suggest you rent motorbikes for the day and make one of your stops this badass place. There are locals sitting out front that will try to make you pay 10,000 IDR, but they’re just trying to make a quick buck. It’s free to get in – ignore them, and walk around back to let yourself in.
There is some of the most amazing street art I’ve ever seen in this complex, and the open roof is undeniably awesome.
Pay close attention to all of the detailed carvings throughout the park as well.
You will see old ticket booths, signs, animal shaped boulders and more. There used to be a crocodile pool within the park, and there are rumors that some of the crocodiles still live in the river next to it.
There is so much to explore here…don’t stop after the entrance! You’ll want to catch this gorgeous painting below that leads to a building.
Where inside you’ll find mostly rubble…
Take at least an hour to see it all… and don’t miss the gorgeous flowers hanging from vines all throughout.
Nature has clearly taken over here.
