I caught the show on Wed at Ubud Palace (tickets are sold on the premises during the usual visiting hours) and was mesmerized by the beautiful and graceful dances, accompanied by meledious Balinese music which makes it wonderful cultural experience. We arrived 30 mins early...More

The dance is good but a little bit long and repetitive, the people playing seems a little bit tired, doesn't seems like they want to be there. Recomend if you don't have anything else to do but it's not a life changing experience.

Great experience. Beautiful colours. Incredible costumes. The hour went by very fast! Would have appreciated it more if we were given a summary of the event beforehand.

This was such a wonderful experience, the dancing so highly intriguing, that I cannot wait to return to Bali for a repeat performance. It's more than a dance - expect a live open air cultural show that gives a peek into the Balinese practices that...More
