Barong and Kris Dance
The Barong and Keris Dance is a story about the fight between Barong, a good spirit and Rangda, a bad spirit. Barong is a mythological character of Bali and considered the king of the spirts, leader of the hosts of good and sworn enemy of Rangda as the Bali myths dictate.
The Barong and Kris dance is one of the Bali’s most iconic dance dramas, on par with the Legong and Kecak. Those with a keen interest in arts and culture will appreciate the performances the most, with daily shows scheduled at various stages throughout Bali’s main tourism areas – the most popular being at Batubulan in Gianyar, and the Denpasar suburbs.
Celuk Gold and Silver Art Village
Celuk Village is home to the most amazing artistic Gold and Silver art. Celuk Village is a traditional village situated near Ubud in the Gianyer Regency where you can appreciate the mountain culture which in many ways is similar to that of the traditional areas of Ubud and the other surrounding.
Celuk Village is famous for the incredible gold and silver handicrafts which are available around this area for very low prices. In the Sukawati area you will find craftsmen of a very high standard and you can barter over goods or even purchase them in a wholesale capacity.
Batuan Village is famous for its artwork and style of painting which originated in the village in the 1930s and has since emerged into a major Balinese artistic style, known as a Batuan painting.
It is a major painting centre and contains a number of art galleries and cooperative art societies which have played a key role in promoting the art of Batuan. The village is also known for its performance of the ancient Gambuh dance, performed every Full Moon day.
Tegallalang Rice Terraces
Tegallalang Rice Terraces are located only 20 minutes north of Ubud. The area is one of Bali’s most famous tourist attractions for it beautiful rice terraces.
If you want one of Bali’s best tourist photos, then this is the spot. Offering dramatic views and vistas, the rice terraces sprawl down and away on the slopes and across the valley. For a small fee, a farmer who is also a local elder and land owner invites visitors to purchase woven hat handmade by himself as well as sample his green coconut drink.
