Sanur – Arrive in Bali and Attend a Legendary Dance at Batubulan Village
Bali is an island paradise on the Indonesian archipelago known for more than just the serene beauty but also the inspiring ambiance emanating from the historical culture. Your flight lands at Ngurah Rai International Airport, where your private transfer greets the family upon arrival. You make the brief journey to Sanur, the perfect town for parents and children due to a fine assortment of restaurants, bars, and private resorts spread across a thin stretch of beach protected by a colorful reef. The shoreline reaches approximately three miles along the east coast pressing against lush greenery hiding the local shops and cafes.
The scent of the sea blends with the aroma of white jasmine flowers. You continue to a performance known as the Barong and Kris dance, reflecting the eternal struggle between good and evil. Two men play a large lion figure known as Rangda who embodies demons with long fingernails and a drooping chest. The hero, Barong, is depicted by men wrapped in banana leaves wearing masks. In the different regions of Bali, Barong can take the shape of a wild pig, tiger, snake, dragon, or lion depending on which animal is more sacred to local lore. The battle ensues on stage exploring the epic struggle between the legendary figures. The entire family stands captivated by the movement, music, and story until at last, Barong is victorious.
