We had a good ti,e at the show but it is clearly not as interesting as the Legong / Ramayana Dance at the Ubud Palace.

A must-have when in Ubud.Did it with 3 kids (3,7 and 9) and they love it (at least the 2 oldest ones).

Well, It was interesting for 30 minutes, after that it was pretty much the same thing. 50 or so half naked men chanting and 2-3 Indonesian women in traditional costumes dancing around the fire. The dancing was nice but after a while it gets boring as they keep doing the same chanting and dancing.

Really nice show. The dance, the chorous, the costumes, everything amazing. It's a must you have to do if you are in Ubud. The show is for like 1 hour and 15 minutes, but you don't even notice because it captivats you during the hole time. Highly recomended!

Loved it! We went to the performance just up the street from the Ubud Palace at the Batukaru Temple. The performance begins with a chorus of male singers.

A woman offered me the ticket when I and a friend were walking down near the Ubud Palace as you will find people selling the tickets along the street. The price was not that expensive. This is my first time watching the dance. I have known the story of the dance for long so I can follow the plot of... More

We found this very boring. They dancers came out and chanted but just sat on the ground. While it was around a fire there was no extra light so what was going on couldn't be seen. Apparently a story was being told but there didn't seem any change in tone and no commentary. Everyone sitting in the very dodgy grandstand... More
