Nusa Dua is the place to be if you have an evening free this July. Peninsula Island is hosting the first ever Nusa Dua Light Festival providing entertainment, food, and plenty of photo opportunities.

Tickets cost between 30,000 and 75,000 Rupiah, with lower prices for locals and higher rates at weekends.

Inside you'll find fields of flower lights, a magical forest, and lanterns in all shapes and sizes, including a towering dragon. It's a real transformation of this usually empty park area.

The impressive centrepiece


The festival is open from 5pm until 10pm each evening. The lanterns are best viewed when it gets dark after 6pm but there is plenty to do if you arrive before then.

To the left of the entrance is a long row of food stalls selling something for every taste, from nasi goreng to BBQ ribs. Further around is a play area with trampolines, bumper cars, and an inflatable slide for the kids. All of these are ticketed at 20,000 - 30,000 Rupiah.

Up on stage there are various musical performances throughout the evening, beginning with a gamelan show. You can sit on the grass and soak up the atmosphere or enjoy the sounds as you wander around the park.

If you're coming by car I'd recommend getting there earlier rather than later as when we left at 7pm the cars were still streaming in and having to park a long way from the event.

Nusa Dua Light Festival is running from 17 June - 30 July 2017. Judging by its popularity I expect they're already planning how to bring it back and make it even bigger and better for 2018.
