As this is a place of worship, visitors must ensure that they wear a sarong to cover knees and ankles when visiting a temple. Also, make sure that shoulders and midriffs are covered. If you do not have your own, you can hire one from the locals at the entrance.
If you would like to come and see the dance and are travelling from Denpasar or Kuta, it is best to get a taxi. There are many metered taxis in Bali, particularly in the tourist areas of Denpasar, Kuta, Seminyak, Sanur, Ubud and Nusa Dua. Finding a taxi is extremely easy as taxis usually crawl along the main road beeping at tourists. Make sure to get a taxi with a meter, look for the Bluebird Group taxis, otherwise ensure you negotiate a price before getting in. As a guide, a 5km trip will cost around 40,000-50,000 IDR ($4-$5 AUD or $3-$4 USD).
There are also many accommodation choices located in Ubud, so perhaps you could come and stay for a couple of nights, as Ubud has a completely different feel than the beach towns of Kuta or Seminyak. Book accommodation online today!
