Bali emanates an essence of culture and fun, which is embodied in the temples, artwork, beaches, and restaurants. Diverse flowers decorate villages and rice terraces texture emerald slopes. Long-tailed macaques run through historical temple complexes, and farmers cultivate seaweed along the shores. From the jungle-clad mountains to the white-sand coastline, the island offers insight into a fascinating past and an exciting present as your flight lands at Ngurah Rai International Airport. Your private transfer will greet you upon your arrival and escorts you south to the shores of Nusa Dua.
The town overlooks the glistening waters of the Indian Ocean as framed by palm fronds and lush ferns. Your resort-style hotel will offer pristine views of the sea that laps at the sand. Surfers set out to catch the waves, which crest beyond the reef. The scent of roasted coffee drifts out of cafes that happily use coffee beans grown on the island. In the evening, you will venture to the Devdan Show for your introduction to Balinese culture.
The theatrical performance follows a storyline that crosses the Indonesian Archipelago with a focus on tales from Balinese, Sumatran, Borneo, and Javanese legend. The stage fills with exotic light that highlights the movement of the dancers. Each dancer uses their hips and hand motions to detail the meaning of the tales. Acrobats flip across stage beneath neon colored trees and small temple replicas. The performers are hypnotic in their movement and the choreography will immerse you in the Tangkep, soul, of the dance.
