WHERE IS THE BEST SHOW?

UBUD BALINESE DANCE SHOW RECOMMENDATION:

*) For the best picture or photography i think Ubud palace (outdoor stage, not indoor) is the best one since they have a special lighting and the palace gate as background.

**) For the nice atmosphere and different sensation i think Saraswati temple is the best. It’s open stage and surrounded by awesome Lotus ponds.

***) For the Kecak Fire dance, Pura Dalem temple is the best. The choreography, sound, lighting, custome (dress), background stage, even their jokes also so entertaining.

****) But, those temples sometime crowded, especially on peak season (June – August). So, the best one sometime not far from your stay. 😉

    Thank you for the informative article.
    I think you haven’t mentioned about Bali dance in south of Ubud park or soccer field. I forget the name of the place, but i’m sure they have a show there. Maybe you can add it in your post?

  2. Polina Souza

    Informative blog!
    I think you need to describe all the kind of Bali dance. Since we really don’t know about Bali dance itself.
    Thank you.

    Informative section of content. I just stumbled upon your weblog and in fact enjoyed your blog posts. Any way, can you describe about the kind of Balinese dance?
