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. « less

They have many street vendors who offer you everything as soon as you step down the car. And once you buy something from one, many will push their goods to you. With words like "please help, I havent sold a single thing in 3 days." Bear in mind that it is pure lies, okay... Bargaining skill is necessary. And dont... More

What to buy: The Sukawati market is bigger than the popular market in Ubud and has a lot of the same goods (and more) at a cheaper price. You can also place orders for goods in bulk, or for goods made to order here. Sarongs, clothing, souvenirs, home decor, artwork, bedding, musical instruments, etc, etc are for sale here. Do... More

Sukawati is a 15min diversion from the Kuta-Ubud journey. We are not much into craft, souvenir buying so we bought just a few small items. This is supposed to be the cheapest place to get stuff. All the stall owners are friendly (probably cause I speak a bit of Indonesian + my kids were with me) but the street peddlers... More

I suggested to the wife to visit the place after lunch in Ubud. It was an idea that I did not regret. The colors, sights, smells and sounds are more than enough to make the place worth a visit. It is one place to go if you are really keen on getting stuff back for family and friends.... Remember; bargain,... More

I came here on 2 June 2014. About 1-2 hours driving distance from airport, I was using a GPS to guide me to this place. Pay 5000 IDR for car park. Many clothes and art work, you have to bargain and you'll get a very good price. If you bargain right, the price is cheaper then in Kuta.

The market has the best price in Bali or anywhere else in the world. Where on earth can you get paintings with wooden frames for 40,000rupiah and this is without bargaining! Perhaps it helps that I speak the languange but then again even if you dont...the prices are better than the touristic area. I love going there to shop for... More

The markets from Hell or Heaven depending if you are male or female. So much stuff crammed into one place. A lot of it the same, but a lot of great bargains to be had here if you can cope with the narrow aisles and the heat. You can always cool off with a drink from outside. Have fun!

Good market lots and lots and lots and lots etc, of cheap stuff, very extensive expanding up a couple of roads but seriously most men will find it way too much.
