A visit to the Saung Angklung of Pak Udjo is an excellent opportunity for families with children to have direct contact with the music and dance based on the angklung very much used by the locals. Maybe the entry fee is somewhat high for the families.

What a nice show. I had fun and the price was reasonable. Only young actors (Anklung school) but they seemed to enjoy what they did. A mixture of different styles and dances. A free drink comes with the entrance fee.

Worth doing if you want to see a bit of local flavor, but it's a bit of an assault on the senses, especially if you're not all that into bamboo instruments. The kids are cute, though, and it feels like a tourist trap.

This school is worth a visit, even for people who aren't a big fan of Angklung music. The performance the students give is very entertaining, they really know how to get the audience involved.

Theres just something about this place that screams harmony! Sometimes the beauty lies in nature but there are times, it is in the act of the human being. This institution is run by a family who had always carried values of nature and culture all togetherness since 1966, and passed down through generations. The music, dances and craftsmanship will awe... More

Excellent show to watch, great to see so many children actively involved in local heritage. Not easy to find, so ask clear directions. We enjoyed it very much.

I came here expecting a total tourist trap. It was quite touristy, but it was a good display of traditional Sundanese culture. A little pricy yes, but the performances are well worth it.

It is a lovely place (albeit a bit difficult to find) with a very good show, but that's about it. The show starts at 3:30 pm daily... Make sure you're there in time for it cos there's nothing else worth the admission price. Also bear in mind that the price is different for "locals" and foreigners, not a huge difference,... More
