Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

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

I read about these markets on Trip Advisor so asked my driver to drop in on our way home from Zoo. My driver was surprised had not really been there much she ended up ringing her brother who runs a business to say he should buy from here as much cheaper prices than in Kuta etc. Prices were amazing, stall...

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

If you know little bit of Bhasa and have patience and skills to bargain, this is the place to be. You may find the things in dearth cheap, be it glasses, dress, beach wears, accessories.......you have too many options at hand,p. Also I must say that I found quality to be very satisfying

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
