Ubud is an oasis of tranquility and a real Balinese kampong-style living can be experienced here. The local markets, also known as Traditional Markets are full of local people buying their wares, whether food, fabric or souvenir related. The Ubud traditional market offers hundreds of stalls, shops and other outlets to browse for some great bargains. Plenty can be found,... More

Unless you find something uniquely Ubud for souvenirs all these items can be bought all over Bali; even the metal souvenirs.

My wife and I went there to buy souvenirs for our relatives. And the result is we bought so many souvenirs because there was a lot of unique and nice souvenirs. The price is quite cheap and affordable. Besides shopping, we also enjoyed afternoon walk in this market.

If you are clueless of what to bring home for colleagues and friends, there's plenty of cheap souvenirs here.... We came early and managed to bargained for good prices for the items we bought. But be careful and don't feel bad to bargain. There are indeed black sheep among them. We asked for the price for a pack of 5... More

If it's your first time in Ubud, then visiting this place is a must. Conveniently located at the bustling town center and just opposite the royal palace, this market is flooded with tourists daily. Most of the stalls sell pretty much the same stuff so if time permits, one should recee the whole market before making a purchase. The usual... More

There are so many stalls in these markets I feel like one visit isn't enough!! Mostly I saw tourist gumph which is available everywhere in Bali (including an extremely high disproportionate number of wooden penis souvenirs!) but there were some exceptions including original artwork and some beautiful crotched goods. If bartering isn't your thing, don't buy here but it is... More

This market seems very quaint when you first arrive, but as soon as I took steps into the market I was almost bombarded by sellers forcing their wares on me. They see tourists and hike prices up compared to other smaller shops in ubud which sell the same things. I did not stay long as the behaviour of the sellers... More

I was expecting unique local art, but in reality this was just a series of tourist shops which felt like they all sold the same thing - wooden trinkets, t-shirts, etc. Yes, maybe they were all Balinese, but I've seen many of these markets and ended up walking quickly through and moving on.

Having been to Bali 4 years ago the difference is shocking. I find Ubud in general to have become too tourist and not very authentic anymore. Same with the market. However I always do enjoy the bartering with the stall holders.
