Preparation of Cock Fighting For Tourist in Bali


Two men in a stone circle painted in yellow. Each one helds a cock. What did they do?

Well, they were members of a guide team in Nusa Lembongan, Bali. They had a duty to show one way of old culture of Balinese, a cock fighting.

A cock fighting has been known widely as inseparable part of Balinese way of living in the past. People may hold it on special occasions. but they do it also when they have too much spare time.

Now, most of travel agencies in Bali will propose this cock fighting habit as one of an attraction for tourism. Visitors are often asked, not only to watch and being spectators, but also to join by putting their money (not big amount) on one of the cock.

Quite different from the past cock fighting, where the cocks will fight until one of them are dead and when their legs was equipped with a sharp blade, the winner or loser are now decided by seeing which cock crosses the yellow circle.

It's just a tourist show but it shows a bit part of Balinese Culture. Quite attractive, especially when you win.
