Happened to see this huge wood carving at Mas, an art village in Ubud, on my way to the Bali Bird Park. Came back to get a really good close look at the sheer ‘mindblowingness’ of it. Several heart-stopping moments of beauty in the streets of Ubud, and some with more than a touch of humour in them, such as the monkey sculpture below, outside a crafts store. Cracked me up every single time I saw it.
Bali Bird Park is a wide 250 hectare aviary park with more than 250 species of birds. The aviaries are wide and open, and birds fly freely through the park. They have a show, 'The Free Flight Bird Show' that lets visitors observe the antics of birds of prey. There are fixed feeding times, during which the visitors can feed the birds. There is also a special ‘Hatchling Area' which showcases the different stages of many of the birds in the park.Opening hours: All days, 9.30am - 5.30pmCost: US$26 (₹1666) for adults, US$13 (₹835) for children
