Batubulan is a craft village south of Ubud, supposedly known for its stone carvings, but famous among tourists for its Barong Dance theatre (if it's on your Bali bucket list, buses and private drivers all stop here). In case you were wondering, the Barong is a lion-dog mythological creature. The colourful and energetic dance weaves a (very complicated) mixture or myth and history. You'll be offered a pamphlet with the summary of the story at the entrance, but good luck keeping up with the plot. 👍 Arrive a little early to get the chance of taking a photo with one of the beautiful dancers.
