Shopping in Bali

by /bio/dympna »

Bali is a shopper's paradise!!! I ended up buying an extra suitcase there to get everything home. I still look at the things I got and think fondly of that trip.

Though the original poster has returned from their trip, to anyone else looking for a great shopping experience, I suggest a viist to Batubulan which isn't too far from Ubud. It's a stone carving village, and the statues they do of Hindu gods are really extraordinary, and come in all sizes, so you could pack one and bring it back in your suitcase. (Funny story: we did that and had to totally unpack it for customs. I guess they thought we were trying to smuggle drugs).

Bali is sensational!

Just had to second Batubulan. I got some amazing sculptures there. They're the most remarked upon objects in my house.

LucyL -

I am surprised that no one has jumped in to answer this question for you.

Most people enjoy shopping in Ubud, Denpasar, or Kuta Beach..  Yes, shipping of large items can be arranged.

Bali offer many places to shope, for boutiques lovers I would suggest the Ubud, this place is famous for Yoga & resort wear stores like Yoga wear clothing and Bali Spirit Yoga shop on Jalan Hanmon.

Ubud is expensive market, if you think your budget is limited  then head to Sukawati market, this is one-stop shopping.

For craft stuff shopping then head to Legain/Seminyak specially for surf, funky,shoes and clothes stuff. You can also find Biasa, Paul Ropp, Billabong, Body and Soul, Quickailver and Ocean Pacific.


From kuta market take short taxi ride to the Galleria, here you will get many fixed price shops including branch of Matahari, hardware store, kids clothing, restaurants, sports stores and more.

Kerobokan - Geneva Handicraft, a Kuta north region, here you see 4 floors of warehoused handicrafts - famous for cheap price. Really you can get very cheap rate.

Bali is paradise for shoppers The beautiful traditional culture of the island and its focus on aesthetics mean that locally produced handicrafts, textiles, and art are everywhere. As Bali is a thriving tourist center, products from around Indonesia and Asia can easily be found at low prices, while decades of cosmopolitan visitors have contributed to a thriving fashion scene.   The cost of living is low, and so are prices, allowing the smart traveler to enjoy the best of all worlds without breaking the bank. Traditional shops and markets offer flexible prices, making the best deals possible for those with bargaining skills, while most stores offer fixed prices that are so low that bargaining is unnecessary.   What to Buy on Bali Bali is Famous for... A lot of things...and LOW PRICES!  Even the most exclusive high end products will be considerably cheaper than what you would pay anywhere else, and particularly Europe, Australia, Korea, Japan.   Silver work, handicraft, art work and paintings, fashion & clothes, furniture and deco items, natural soaps and essences, coffee, cloth....you name it.   Tips on Shopping in Bali Shoppers will be in heaven in Bali, but should remember some tips that will make their experience smoother.    Cash and Credit Cards First of all, credit cards are generally accepted but cash purchases are the norm in places that bargain and in smaller shops. Larger shops that do accept them will often expect you to pay a 2.5% to 3% processing charge - because this is the fee the credit card companies charges the vendor for processing the payment. If you do not want to pay this extra percentage, carry cash.    Always Check the Quality Also, make sure to always check the quality of the products that you are buying. If you are not sure how to tell whether something is of good quality, ask local people or other travelers. Indonesians are very interested in the tricks that allow low-quality goods to be passed off as the real thing, and like talking about this, as do tourists who come to Bali to shop. This also goes for prices, which can vary greatly. Ask different people the same questions to get a feel for what the right price should be.    Bargaining Another point to remember is that when it comes to bargaining, it’s best to be friendly. Bargain hard but don’t get angry or pushy, and don’t make insulting jokes. You will get nowhere, and might get in an argument. Keep in mind that prices in some tourist areas may be double or triple the normal rate, so start low and wait for the seller to come down to a rate that you like. If that doesn’t work, leave the shop. If the seller really wants to make a deal, he or she might give you a final low price, and if not, there are more shops to look at. Finally, if a shop has price tags and the seller tells you that there is no bargaining, even after a few tries, no bargaining is possible, and pushing the point will make you look rude. Follow these simple tips and dive into the shopping heaven that is the island of Bali!
