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

We hired 2 drivers to go up to Sukawati Markets as we had a family group of 9 people. It cost us $40 AUD per vehicle as we also visited the Bali Zoo after the market. We were dropped off at a very hectic market place with street hawkers everywhere, even greeting us the moment we opened the car doors.... More

Is hard work shipping here, but if you stand firm you should be able to get a discount of around 50%. It isn't for the faint of heart, but it's much cheaper than any store in Seminyak or Kuta.

Not bad but wasn't my favourite. The sellers are too pushy and everybody selling the same stuff like everywhere else. It's good for one but I think it's not a must.

The Sukawati market is much better and cheaper than the Ubud and Kuta markets, perhaps because not too many people know about it. We went here with the intent of just taking a look and buying a couple of souvenirs but found the items available and rates so attractive that we made 2 trips to this place during our 10... More

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
