If you’re looking for adventure in Ubud, white water rafting should be high on your agenda, and unless you have your own wheels, a package makes economic sense.

Seeing a Legong or Barong dance is a must do if you are in Bali. It will introduce you to the gamelan music, dance where movements are inspired by the nature (palm trees, animals) as well as traditional activities (e.g., weaving), and exquisite costumes. The performance is at the Palace - a gorgeous location. Be there earlier though to get a good seat. The dance starts at 7:30 pm, I would recommend arriving about 45-60 min before and purchasing the ticket from the front entrance. At the time of my trip (Nov 2019), the cost was 100,000 IDR.

I attended the Legong and Barong Waksirsa Dance at Ubud Palace last night. The show is every night at 7:30 pm and you can just buy tickets from folks standing outside the palace doors. 100 IDR a person. The show is just over 90 minutes and has a huge cast of dancers and musicians. I got there around 6:50pm and it was already about 2/3rds full so you need to get there pretty early for front row center. The costumes were great and some of the dances interesting, but overall it was a bit long and boring with a bunch of dialogue at the end in Indonesian that was impossible to follow. Still, it's worth seeing.

the music was great and they have a big crew of musicians.. i absolutely loved every bit of the performances in 1 hr. i prefer watching kecak and Lelong/Barong dance in Ubud because the audience is small n feels less crowded. mainly u can watch the performance up close. Also they interact with the audience...

I really loved the nightlife in Ubud. After dinner, crowds would start heading to one of the outdoor pavilions and be entertained by one of the dance troops. I attended three, all different locations and different performance companies including this one. The atmosphere, the stage and costumes are ideal for those wanting to feel emerged in the culture past & present of Ubud. Ubud was a stand out location for me and these performances were a highlight. Truly recommend. Travelling alone, first time in a non English country I felt quite safe getting about in the evenings.

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 and was surprised that all the front row seats were already taken. I highly recommend! I just hope that audiences to the performance (and uther performances in Bali) have some basic respect and courtesy for the performers by REFRAINING from leave the performance midway and talking loudly during these performances. It is utterly disrespectful and distracting. Shame on these folks!
