Indonesian traditions from east to west in a theater performance

Devdan show.
An indoor show about Indonesian Cultures from all over the Island packed in 1.5hours of dancing, story telling, beautiful acrobatic action, with good sound system, laser show, and a little bit of fire and water involved.

Interesting but if its open air show will be more existing. And if you have saw Moulin Rouge in France or amphitheater in Senchen China, this one is less colossal.

Show Times: Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday at 19:00.
Ticket depends on the class seat from $55-120, special price for Indonesian (bring ID)

When you stroll the island you might see incredible way people can carry with their small motorbike.
Once I saw an old man and his wife carry 3 big sacks. And the other day I saw man bring a mattras.
