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.

Always a bargain

Most of the island buys their items from here. Come around 6AM for retail and later on for your items to take home. One must bargain or they will eat you alive. A item in ubud can... read more

Only had restricted time to look round. Wish I could have stayed longer. Bought a good priced Buddha carving in one of the streets nearby. Get your bargaining head on but they seem to start a lot lower than other places.

As far as the eye can see is just the same stuff. Wasn't worth the taxi to go there. Nothing worth getting. The wooden ornaments are nice. However, getting them back through customs would be interesting.

Most of the island buys their items from here. Come around 6AM for retail and later on for your items to take home. One must bargain or they will eat you alive. A item in ubud can be three times the price. I have found the street at the end has good prices also. Can be a challenge to park... More

Future shoppers beware, this place is full of unfriendly shop owners and especially pushy staff. They really need to learn how to service customers better, rather than threatening customers to not park the car in front of their shops if we do the shopping on the store next door. What's even more unbelievable from our experience today was that one... More

This local market hosts a lot of art works. However, I find the quality of the art work varies greatly. The market is big and needs a lot of time to explore. One must bargain for best prices here.

Beware of the old ladies because they will keep pushing to buy their things. Just say NO and walk ahead Cut everything off at 60% You may buy the handmade scarf and batik there at a good price and great quality. But the art market is small and very pack .
