Finding exclusive time to spend with our kids is not easy, but it is definitely rewarding. The fact that parents are so busy with their daily activities makes it difficult for them to know what their little ones really want during the weekend. Children can be curious about anything. Their minds are set for challenges and adventures. For that reason, as parents, we have an obligation to free our kids’ wild sense of imagination. So, the next question is, “Where should I take my kids this weekend?”
Ideas pile up, but all kids centres in the southern part of the island have been checked from your list. If you are running out of ideas, why not take a momentary break from the typical island attractions and head north to experience a fun day at Krisna Funtastic Land.

Located on Bali’s northern coast, near the famous Lovina Beach, this park is designed to entertain visitors through the fascinating world of modern science and technology. To get there you need to drive 4 hours from Denpasar. Starting your day-trip in the morning is not necessary because they open daily from 4 – 10 PM.
