ne of the richness of Indonesia that you shouldn’t miss when travelling here is the traditional dances. Each region has their own dances and they have their own meaning. In Bali alone, there are so many dances. UNESCO recognizes three genres of traditional dance in Bali, Indonesia, as Intangible cultural heritage. The three genres includes Wali (sacred dances), Bebali (semi-sacred dances) and Balih-balihan (dances for entertainment purposes). You can find these dances in the temples or in special occasions. However, since Bali is a tourist destination, you can also find and enjoy these dances while eating. We listed some places where you can dine in and enjoy these traditional dances.
