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. 😉
