Don't know what I expected, but the market is just like any other "traditional market" in other foreign countries. It's fun to walk by the stalls and look at the handycrafts and such, but that's it. Nothing spectacular, it's a market! On the other hand I did like the fact that you could buy and mix freshly ground spices. Make... More

The Ubud markets are a great place to spend a couple of hours shopping for souvenirs. So many stalls selling a variety of things. Shoppers paradise! Bargaining is a must!

Huge variety and cheap price. Quality is same as available in discovery or hyper market. But you have to bargain. If you are good at bargaining then... More

If you like over crowded places, store vendors constantly harassing you to buy and asking you, "you like? Only $1" and spend your time bargaining back and forth with the vendors for cheap knick knacks, then this place is for you! It was interesting 1st day I was here...30 minutes into it and then I realized I really dislike this... More

Shop is in the air. The great time to shop is when the Bali people is finished their prayer in the morning. Because they believe first people who buy their stuff will bring luck all day long.. And its true, i got many discounts when i shopped in the morning.

This area is famous for silver, wood and stone art work of local artisans. Wood works are awe-inspiring. Silver jewelry work is also very good and claimed to be of pure silver (92.5% purity). You will see lot of stone art works similar to the one used in numerous temples you see in Bali.

Most of the market has been rebuilt and is much more tourist friendly than it was before. I enjoy going there because I always find what I am looking for but they do raise the prices for the tourists. Don't try and fleece the locals because they also have to make a living! When I look at an item, I... More

This is a good place to buy artefacts and souvenirs. The variety available here is slightly more than what is available in sukawati market but the prices are higher. It is a lot cheaper than kuta market though. Getting there is quite convenient. If you are staying in ubud, you could just walk to the ubud market. The way to... More

Ubud is known as the arts and crafts center of Bali and this place provides tourist with lots of local made goods. They mostly sell the same thing in each shop. Bargain is a must and they do get upset if you bargained and decided not to buy. We did buy a few pieces of home decor from this place... More

Some products proposed are fun or good to bring back home but most of those remain cheap versus the offers of other shops in Ubud. You can actually find the same products at a cheaper price without having to bargain again and again on the road to tegalalang terraces (shops advertising "wholesale"). If you go there, make sure it is... More
