Experience Balinese culture and some cheekiness with the characters. You can have your photo taken with the dancer.

Loved the expression, story lines and the fact that written story line was distributed upon entry. Outdoor performances added a mystic to each performance. The live music that accompanied many of the performances was wonderful.

Ubud Palace is a nice place to see during the day, but the dance performed there at night is not much. Left before the end of it. Not worth the money at all. For truly spectacular traditional dance, I would recommend the one at Uluwatu Temple (Pura Luhur Uluwatu).

Arrive early to get a seat. Performers are amazing. Good value. Tickets can be purchased anywhere as they have several street sellers. Right across from the Ubud market. Nice venue.

We had a seat in the front row with a perfect view. I have seen this dance on film, but to see it in person was mesmerizing. Well worth the effort to get there early to get a front row center seat.

It's part of being in Bali!! Beautiful. Memorable. Buy the ticket from anyone you meet in the street because they are part of the troupe.
