Traditional Dance Performance cum Dinner

Traditional dance is part of the fascinating Balinese culture. This tour takes you to the village of Batabulan to see the famous Kecak dance performance. The Kechak dance is performed by a group of at least 50 men who dance in a circle around blazing bamboo torches and it tells the enthralling story of how the monkey-like Vanara helped Prince Rama rescue his wife Princess Sita who had been kidnapped by the evil King of Lanka. This dance is unique because it has no musical accompaniment unlike many other Indonesian dances. The rhythm of the dance is produced by the men’s chanting.

Dinner will take place after the dance at the Warung Bebek Restaurant in Lodtunduh Ubud. Tantalize your taste buds with sumptuous Indonesian Cuisine served with Sambal matah, a signature Balinese spicy condiment.

*Vegetarian food is available upon request. Please indicate this when you make your booking for this tour.
