The market is a visual feast for the eyes with so much colour and activity going on. You can find anything you want and more here, with carvings, paintings, jewellery, clothes and souvenirs galore. Many stalls were repetitive, but it helps with the bargaining to say you've been offered a better price. This is half the fun of coming here... More

My husband and I visited the Ubud Market after exploring other art markets like Sukawati and Mas Carving. I was not very impressed by this market. They have many vendors on the street level and some upstairs. The vendors upstairs sell better quality goods, including masks and wood statues. The vendors downstairs sell a lot of souvenirs like soaps, key... More

Don't bother visiting here. The prices are marked up so much and the locals don't bother with bartering. IE an item that you can buy for about $5 in a local Chinese market or $2 store will be sold for $50+ in the market.

The market has literally everything you need to buy from Bali, from Coasters, Silver jewelry, wood souvenirs, wicker baskets to traditional scarves & dresses...etc. But be ready to bargain, they usually give you a high price but would agree at the end for a much cheaper one. Take your time to look around all shops, you should definitely buy all... More

There are many pretty (and mostly useless) things you can buy here but don't expect too much. You can find the same anywhere on the island. The concentration of annoying sellers is very high here.

The market has everything you need to bring back home as souvenir. I highly recommend that you get your souvenirs in ubud as elsewhere might be more expensive with less variety. As tourist be ready to hear a high starting price but dont be scared to lower it to what you think it is worth. It is not rare that... More

Located opposite Puri Saren, this open air market sells traditional art items as well as cheap imitation art pieces, paintings, souvenirs and wood carvings. Worth a visit if you are in Ubud.

This place is a must-visit in Ubud - jam-packed with arts and crafts, but you have to bargain hard or risk being taken for a ride. It's a labyrinth of local arts and crafts woven throughout a 2-storey, 1-block mini-town comprised of hundreds of individual sellers. The market seemed lot quieter this time compared to previous, perhaps due to an... More

A great place to experience the "vibe" most shops do sell the same thing, but at least you may be able to get a better price by comparing shops.
