If you are pressed by time and can not see other Kecak dances, this one is okay because it is located near the I Gusti Ngurah Rai by pass in Denpasar. But the quality of the actors and actresses are just so so and many...More

Bus loads of tourists come here. The music was good but dance was just OK. They have sheets in many languages to help you understand the story. 100,000 per person. Performers take photos with you for tips afterward.

If you're a fan of history and culture, you can go to Uma Dewi to watch it. It is very interesting to watch and definitely an unforgettable experience.
