This is a show featuring a Balinese folk tale including dance and acts . It's for around 45 mins . A bit boring for people who can't sit at one place . Not a must watch but good people who love art and history

Don't even think of going there. It was just awful. Most of the dance narratives were in local language and we were not able to understand at all. Compete waste of time & money.

When you are in Bali, naturally the guide will suggest to include this attraction in your itinerary. Little bit overpriced ie 100000 idr per ticket, little bit boring but if you want to see and promote bali culture then ok. Seating arrangement and ancillary management...More

Your tour guide will tell you this is the first item on the itinerary. You want to start the day on a great note with a cultural dance. The dance itself costs rp100,000/-. The truth of the matter is this dance is terrible. The concept...More

Avoid going to if you don't have children with you. Good way to keep them entertained for an hour as the characters on stage are dressed up and funny. Display of Traditional dancing mixed with religious culture. Didn't have a clue what was going on...More
