Tegallalang Handicraft Centre in Bali

Ubud Shopping

Tegallalang is a district in Bali’s regency of Gianyar, located just up north from Ubud. The area spans an approximate 62sqm. However, it is the 10.5km length of road that traverses through this Bali heartland up from the main Ubud places of interest for which Tegallalang is best known for.

Tegallalang is also a famous stopover on day excursions to the northern parts of the island such as Kintamani via Ubud, with its wide open green rice terrace viewpoint, halfway along the Jalan Raya Tegallalang thoroughfare. Although agriculture is still the primary source of living among locals, the area and villages also produce arts and crafts.

This is evident through the various cottage industries in the area, which deal with the manufacture and worldwide exports of an assortment of handicrafts and furniture items. It is not an overstatement to say that perhaps the Tegallalang route may also have the longest row of art shops in the world, making a drive along Jalan Raya Tegallalang a colourful one indeed.


A half-hour's drive north from the Ubud intersection at the eastern end of Jalan Raya Ubud brings you to a much cooler and elevated region in the island’s heartland. The dramatic view of its rice terraces also provides a cool and breezy spot for visitors to stop and take photos. Many artists also bring their canvases here to paint.

Apart from the rows of art shops, the Tegallalang rice terraces are famous for their splendid landscapes. Amazing rice paddies overlook hills and streams and are explored through pedalling or trekking to Tegallalang as well as other villages around Ubud such as Pejeng and Campuhan.

At the viewpoint, located on the eastern roadside, the wide green vista spreads down before you and away to the valley and rice terraces on the opposite side. Afternoons are even more dramatic for photographers wishing to capture the scenery.

The art shops lining the route feature an assortment of colourful and unique items of different shapes and sizes, from interior ornaments, furniture, typical Balinese curios and many others. Several shops specialising in accessories present a variety of jewellery ranging from rings, bracelets, necklaces, bandanas, which are made from a mixture of materials such as mother of pearl, shells, wood, stone as well as beads and resin.

For those interested in accessories, prices vary greatly. The trip here is truly a treat for the eyes, with the many choices of handicrafts and colourful items on display, including paintings. Some shops feature fixed prices... nevertheless, bargaining is still recommended.

Good to Know about Tegallalang Handicraft Centre

The farmer who owns the land sells young coconut drinks and woven hats made from coconut leaves. It is also common sight to see him posing on the grassy ledge then approaching photographers for a small fee. Souvenir peddlers also follow suit, but simply enjoy the view if no item interests you. Besides, the whole roadside shops are full of these goods.

A further drive up north you’ll find the craftsman’s dominion of Pakudui Village in Tegallalang. A right turn up from the famed rice paddy leads to the village with its Garuda carvings and various wooden animal sculptures.

Once again, bargain wherever possible. Sometimes, price tags don’t always mean fixed prices!
