It is a great show bear in mind that you should get there early to make sure that you get good seats which are limited. We ended up standing by a big tree so see what was going on. Bring a cushion, mozzie spray and a rain jacket as you are outside. The dances are well executed and the women's... More

Wasn't keen on coming here but I'm glad we stopped. The dance was very good. A lot of detail and work went into it and the performers and musicians were very talented. I also liked the guide they gave us so we could better understand what was happening. The only thing I didn't like was how pricey it was ($10aud... More

We went to see Legong dance performance in Ubud Palace. Very busy and few chairs, make sure you arrive on time to get a good seat. The dance is interesting and very different from any dance we have seen before, but it can be a bit boring and repetitive. The troupe was quite good.

I found it terrible, offensive and just downright a tourist trap. What a waste of time. It s bunch of old men, doing a really rendition of a I don't even know what you call it. This dance is obsessed with penises and even though I have no kids and certainly not a prude I would caution parents wanting to... More

This was a fun experience. The story was told over an hour through dance and music. The girls and I found it very interesting and entertaining but my husband was bored after 15 minutes. The hand movements, costumes, masks, eye communication and dance were all very different. This was worthwhile as a cultural experience. But not for everyone?

Maybe my taste is too western, but I find the music and dance at these shows very boring?? Worth watching for a few minutes but not much more!

the setting by the lotus pond is an excellent ambiance, however there are loads of mosquitos so please do not forget your insect repellent. the performance is good, but can get a bit boring..they give you a leaflet which describes the dances but no further information about the performance. its k if you give it a miss too.

From what I could see the performance looked ok. If you don't get there early & are seated at the back it's hard to see anything unless if you stand up. It seemed to drag on quite a bit. Looked like same stuff over & over. The mosquitoes were everywhere. Felt like I was getting eaten alive!

It was a good experience for first timer like me to watch. But the whole performance was degraded by dancers who seemed or looked to be unsettled when came their turn to be seated or stand stationary while the others dancing or acting. They seemed to be not part of the performance when to were looking left and right, and... More

Out Driver Made Paul Artwan suggested this spot to watch a local dance it was well worth the entry fee. It went for about 45 minutes and we where under shelter from the sun and the rain. We stopped here for an early morning performance and it was excellent. We enjoyed the atmosphere and we purchase the plate at the... More
