As evening descends on this tropical paradise and the last rays of the setting sun light up the sky with a warm red glow, the shadows and sounds of the night join together to cast a spell over the island, infusing it with an aura of mysticism. As twilight falls, you'll travel by coach to Bali's own amazing Bird Park. Here, an open-air dining area located in the center of the Park provides the setting for a delicious traditional Indonesian dinner. As you relax and enjoy your meal, the unique sounds of the native birds as they settle for the evening provide a tranquil background of nature's own music.
Following your meal, you'll be transported to a nearby stage where you'll witness the utterly unique and fascinating performance of the Kecak Dance. Kecak is a ritual dance that recounts a tale from the Ramayana, an epic story that found its way from India to Indonesia. During the dance, the only musical accompaniment is the chanting that is supplied by men who are positioned in a concentric circle on the stage. As the men chant and rhythmically sway to the music, colorfully costumed dancers weave and intertwine their way amongst them. With the stage lit only by glowing torches, the shadows cast by the dancers combined with the haunting chanting, create a truly mesmerizing and unforgettable experience.
A pleasant drive back to the pier concludes this very special evening of Balinese entertainment.
