Ok. Kecak is quite difficult for us to appreciate but you can feel that there is lots of effort put into this! It's a must do but not everyone will appreciate. It's one of those... read more

My husband and I were really looking forward to this performance unfortunately we found it repetitive and boring at times. The performers were very enthusiastic.

I have often felt when traveling and going to cultural performances, that the performers were not enthusiastic about the performance and in fact felt exploited. This performance felt like the performers were engaged and into the dance and chants and the audience was an add on. Certainly the earning from the performance is important to the village, but they are... More

We enjoyed watching the kecak dance. It was very quiet the night we went and only 20 or so guests were there watching. I was completely blown away by the fire trance dance. Couldn't believe that he was dancing around on blazing coconuts like that!! I also enjoyed watching the story of Ramayana. I found the experience unlike anything I... More

It was ok but people should not be allowed to use flash during performance. It is almost impossible to focus on the dance and feel the mysterious atmosphere when everyone is constantly taking pictures with the flash.

We visited the Kecak Dance in the Pura Padang Kerta. You can search all dates and locations online. We paid 5€ per person entrance fee. It's a nice evening activity because it's something that you have never seen. Make sure you show up 30min upfront to have good seats. Show lasts 1 hour and is in open air

It tells a story originating from Hindu religion as shown in the ticket. I suggests that before the show begins, you should read the story in the ticket first to catch up with the story line and feel actors' body language & eye expressions in accordance with the characters within the story. Another interesting point of the show it that... More

We all really enjoyed this dance and my children 5, 9 and 11 were especially enthralled with the fire dance. I would recommend getting there early to get a front or second row seat or perhaps on in the raised seating section. Get there in time to read the information given on the ticket which explains what the dance is... More

We were staying in ubud and had the opportunity to see this show at the temple. Really nice show giving an insight into the culture of Bali. Great atmosphere and not too crowded. Is a longer walk from the town than expected however very much worth it and a very reasonable price also.
