Tips for you
Enjoy the Balinese traditional performance every night
On our first day in Ubud, Bill and I stopped into Ubud Palace. After chatting for a while with one of the guides, we were invited into an inner sanctum where visitors are not normally allowed. There, we were fortunate enough to view the true opulence of the royal family's lifestyle. Although they are now royals in name only, they still use the palace as a residence, and one grandchild was married there not long ago. Later, we attended a legong dance performance of parts of the Ramayana, accompanied by gamelan music. It was a delightful introduction to Balinese culture and dance. There is a modest fee for the performance, but not for visiting the palace itself. TIP for legong performance: Arrive an hour early to get a good seat! These performances are packed! http://www.tripadvisor.com.vn/ShowUserReviews-g297701-d1009746-r246766580-Puri_Saren_Palace-Ubud_Bali.html#
