Most Popular Shopping Places in Bali
Bali caters to a wide range of shoppers, as it is a treasure trove of fine art and handicrafts, antique and semi-antique furniture, paintings, delicately carved jewellery, wood and stone carvings, masks, woven and dyed fabrics.
It is where international and world-famous designer brands can be found beside local and handmade curios. Ubud features a traditional open-air art market that is a favourite place for souvenir hunters. Similar art markets can be found in other areas as well. Strike a bargain at the colourful art markets of Kuta or Sukawati, or shop in air-conditioned modern malls.
The Ubud Art Market is located opposite the the Puri Saren Royal Ubud Palace and is open daily. Here you can find beautiful silk scarves, lightweight shirts, handmade woven bags, baskets or hats; statues, kites and many other hand-crafted goods. Most of the goods are made in the neighbouring villages of Pengosekan, Tegallalang, Payangan and Peliatan. The location of the Ubud Art Market which is centred among the art producing villages, and being just opposite the royal palace which is a centre point to Ubud itself, make it a strategic shopping place for Balinese handicrafts and souvenirs.
