The show itself was a magical experience. You can get hypnotized a bit by these singing men. Main story is a bit confusing but you still enjoy watching it; all these costumes and outfits are just amazing. The only thing that was bothering for the entire time was the audience. I totally get it, it's cool to see and worth... More

Dance and make chorus very interesting and entertaining but BEWARE the fire. I was sitting front row (along with everyone else, as it was not a packed performance) and the man kicking the burning coconut husk kicked at us. The girl on my left fell off her chairman in an attempt to move away from the fire. I have burns... More

First the setting of the show is amazing, right on the coast with sweeping views of cliffs that dive several hundred feet into the Indian Ocean. While you watch the show the sunset is an unforgettable backdrop, a fire red and purple amazing site. As for the show, it's culture and beauty is amazing and it's sprinkled with humor to... More

We loved this dance and also the Barong and Legong dance. The cultural and religious side of Bali is one of the most interesting we've come across in years of travelling. Don't miss to attend at least one dance show while in Ubud. You can buy the tickets and get all the infos at the turist center just in front... More

A dance with a lot of tradition. It helps to read the pamphlet before watching or it is like being at the opera and not having any idea what is going on. Around $7 each for about an hour. Get there early and get a chair and relax into the atmosphere

I went to the fire dance with my family (including 2 kids ages 9 and 12) this past December. The dance was wonderful and the story was easy to follow after reading the narrative in the pamphlet they give you upon entering. The temple it was in was small and there was no bad seat in the house. I didn't... More

The dancers are really talented and the concept and execution is amazing. The organizing folks are too kind and accommodating and let way more people in than the capacity which filled up even the dance area. Audience in a bid to beat the traffic on the way back start leaving in the middle of the performance creating a massive distraction.... More

We enjoyed this performance very much. The setting was beautiful by the ocean / cliff by Uluwatu Temple. The story was amazing, cast was great - easy to follow. Get there early to grab a good seat. Performance starts at 6:00pm and its a packed house every night.
