Not what it’s made out to be

Sat on uncomfortable wooden benches for nearly 2 hours. About 50 men sat in a circle shouting cha cha cha every so often. The fire dance part is just a guy dressed up in a costume kicking hot coal around. Not my thing

Original Trance

Seeing an original dance preformance was definately a highlight from our vacation. The trance singing was good for the soul.

Unique Balinese event. If you appreciate local culture you should see the show. Setting is cool too as it finishes with the setting sun.

Very interesting and worth a visit for the local colour

Wasn't too sure what to expect, really did enjoy the chanting and costumes. If there is anything I would recommend it is to have spot lighting to enjoy the costumes and view of the main characters.

Tourist Trap
Nov 2019 • Couples
If you enjoy being packed like sardines in a humid amphitheatre with zero escape routes organised by people who just wants to maximise profit while watching a cultural dance made popular by those who hopped on the hipster bandwagon, this is for you.

People started to leave 15 minutes into the show. There's a constant stream of people heading for the exits from the 30-minute point. Those were the lucky ones sitting nearby the exits. For the rest of us, since there wasn't any way out as we were seated right smack in the middle, we had to endure the hour-long show.

Even one of the characters had to do a 2-minute mediocre stand-up comedy 45 minutes in.

Avoid at all costs.

Great dance, long wait

The dance itself was entertaining and great costumes! We heard that you needed to be there early to get tickets and a good seat which is true. The arena was nearly full by 4.30. The temple itself is cool to see with some awesome cliff views. Also be aware that Grab does not do pick up in this area and the traffic is crazy after the show with so many people leaving at once.
Costs 50k to enter the temple and an extra 100k for the show. Taxi back to Seminyak Square cost us 450k.

Very exciting and excellent to experience. The men were all very much into their character and the feeling in the air was palpable.

Absolutely amazing!!!

The temple is on the smaller side so the all seats had good views, even towards the back. The temple itself was very beautiful and the performance was just incredible! We had the most amazing time and were signing for days after the show!

Funny and spiritual show
Oct 2019 • Friends
The fire is only to the end of the show so you should not expect to something really spectacular, but the show is more spiritual and maybe religious.
