This 250-acre cultural park on the outskirts of town was built in the 1970s as a way to foster national pride. Full-scale traditional houses for 26 of the country's provinces surround a small central lake with a miniature version of the Indonesian archipelago built into it. A cable-car ride above the lake is a great way to get a bird's-eye view of the park. On the grounds are 17 museums, theaters, monuments, theme-park rides, a bird aviary and a reptile enclosure with a komodo dragon.
