Sukawati art market, Gianyar, is a perfect place for those who just love to shop around or even for those who just want to see what typical Balinese souvenirs, gifts or crafts look like. If you can haggle and learn the average price, it will save you a lot of money compared to Legian, Kuta or Seminyak.You must dare to cut the offered price by 90 percent. They will probably pout or mumble in front of you but Sukawati art market is well known as a wholesale heaven so it should be that cheap; especially if you buy in bulk.

Went to the new markets first. Everything is pretty jammed closely together and lots of repetitive products. The old markets are spread along a street and there is a lot more variety and a lot less claustrophobic. Must say that we all enjoyed the experience, plenty of color, movement and different smells as well as heaps of interesting characters all... More

As not much tourist come here, so the price is still a local price ( not a tourist price ) Make a bargain with 50% off, and the shop owner is actually prepared for that. Their first price is just an invitation to treat, your bargain is an offer, and their reply is an acceptance. (E.g) I get a "Sa-long"... More

Heaps more bargains here than at the Ubud markets, and you virtually have to pass here to get to Ubud anyway. So a good idea to stop! Not just art-most of the things you find in any of the stalls in Ubud or Kuta or anywhere for that matter, at a much reduced price. In fact, I think those stall... More

Dirty and messy but look carefully into each shop, you will find... More

Go earlier in the day, i went at about 5pm and shops were starting to close. Double story buildings selling from souveniers to handicraft to clothings, bags and knick-knacks. Prices are definately cheaper than downtown areas. According to my driver from penastanan, prices are alot lower and locals do shop here. Street stalls are also available outside the main complex....

Plenty of different type of souvenirs! Arts, Bags, Clothes, Dreamcatchers, Sarungs etc etc. You may purchase their local fruit: Salak here too! Bought plenty of dreamcatchers at the price of 3000 rupiah each. So remember to bargain! It can go even more cheaper but remember it's best to be a win-win situation. Art pieces were affordable and it makes such... More

SUkawati's Art Market is not only filled with art pieces, but also a variety of other souvenirs (especially clothes) that one can explore and purchase before returning home. For art pieces, you can get them from the market itself or visit some of the galleries that are nearby
