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.

Most of what one sees around Bali in terms of souvenirs can be bought here at a fraction of a price. Soaps, wood carvings, sarongs which we bought are at least 25% cheaper. However make sure you bargain hard. Go early around 8/9 and you can start at the end of the street where the wholesale shops are. Great bargains... More

The prices of items in this market is way cheaper than places such as Ubud. We bought beautiful wood works from this place for a very cheap price. Make sure you get about %30- %60 discount.

Sukawati is a small town located a little further away from Ubud. I heard most of the crafts and clothing in Ubud come from Sukawati. The art market is a complex of clothing stores, gift shops, craft shops and galleries selling paintings. Bear in mind prices in here are significantly lower than Ubud market so it's really nice. Make sure... More

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
