Markets in Bali
There are many markets in Bali where you can pick up local arts and crafts, jewellery, cheap fashion items and souvenirs. The Balinese are renowned for their artistry, so be sure to check out the canvases and woodcarvings. Even if you’re not particularly interested in buying something, local snacks and the bustle of Bali’s best markets and night bazaars certainly offer something different from the modern malls of Kuta and Seminyak, and lets you experience the local culture.
Bargaining is part of the shopping experience at Bali markets. Just remember to smile and treat it with the same sense of fun as the Balinese do. Despite the piles of Bintang singlets and hippy bags, a trip to a shopping market in Bali offers visitors a chance to get up close and personal with the locals and find something truly unique to take back home.
