We saw this at the Pura dalem in Ubud and thoroughly enjoyed it. I think that anyone interested in foreign cultures and different experiences will really enjoy this. This is very different from western music and western performances. As such, it requires more patience and a more open mind. However, assuming those it is fascinating. The Pura Dalem is a... More

The dance is really overpriced, I would have spent those 100.000 IDR more fun. I dont know why its called a fire dance as the fire itself took around 1 minute of the whole 1 hour performance. Choir singing a capella was nice however did not seem very well trained. Dance also contained atractions only for tourists like White monkey... More

Something to do but not something to write home about. If you are tired, after this you will be really tired.

Was disappointed when we arrived to see all the seats taken and that we would have to sit at the back. However, once the fire started and the smoke began to swirl around we were relieved to be so far back!! We didn't understand the story that was being told but that didn't stop us enjoying the whole experience and... More

Quite boring to many ...even i dozed off for a while! The Ramayana Epic story being reignited in dance. No music ...just chanting ! Just go earlier and get a good seat. Tanah Lot and Uluwatu temples have this dance in open air while watching sunset.

It is an intersting show that certainly will get you into a trance just bear in mind that you should get there early to make sure that you get good seats. Bring a cushion, mozzie spray and a rain jacket (in case it rains as it did the night that we saw it - though the lady who sells the... More

The show is nice. They even hand you a description of the story which is told. Yes it is a tourist magnet (400-500 visitors). Yes you need to be there on time (actually at least 20min before). But anyway the chorus is impressive and the dancing combined with the costumes is great. The only thing that is really annoying is... More

The critical point is to arrive about 30mins before the performance starts to get a good seat, wherever that may mean for you. Stay in the back rows if you're afraid of fire, or linger around the gate to get the stage-facing view (although there're no seats there). Hinduism is the religion of choice for most Balinese and it was... More

Maybe we don't understood their ability but I found it incredibly boring and I suggest not to go. Moreover,some of the guys singing were chatting and laughting instead of taking it seriuosly... Not recommend it

Book this ticket, find a seat and watch the sun sink into the ocean. It was like a dream. Dance ofcourse was great with dancers making sounds with no instruments and a short story of an indian epic ( ramayan) on display. Hats off to the kacak dancers.
