Tips from the community

Culture vultures heading for the Isle of the Gods will want to be sure they hit up the legendary Kecak Fire Dance of Uluwatu Temple. It’s now one of Bali’s unmissable performances, but has a history that goes back all the way to the 1930s when dramatized renditions of the Hindu Ramayana became popular. You’ll join hundreds of other visitors in a stunning cliff top theatre overlooking the wild waves below. Then, costumed dance troupes take to the stage, chanting and gyrating until fire illuminates the whole place. It’s not one you’ll forget in a hurry!
