The Kecak Dance is one of the most interesting and unique performances I've had the pleasure to experience in Indonesia. If you're with a tour make *sure* that you let them know you want to stay till the end. The finale is a ring of fire which is performed at nearly the end of the show and several of the... More

We went to the Kecak dance held under cover adjacent to the Puseh temple. The performance had been moved indoors due to the chance of rain. We enjoyed the Kecak Dance very much. The costuming was done very well and the performers were excellent. It is a bit like opera...if you don't have the patience for opera, you may not... More

This is my personal favourite, the Kecak and fire dance; colour, sound and fire and such an energetic performance. Real toe tapping rhythms and a spectacle to witness.

I loved the show . The monkey looked so real that we were scared when he was waking along the stalls among the spectators. The show with fire is great. Don't miss the Kecak dance if you have the opportunity to watch it.

Without knowing the stories, the dances mean very little. The kecak dance has evolved into one that I do not recognise. There may be too many performances during the week and the performers may be a little tired.

Found it boring and monotonous, too much chanting and couldn't wait to leave. The sun went down whilst there and that looked amazing.
