Agree with reviewer who said 'same, same, same' wth the market. Reminded me of Kuta 20+ years ago! Sellers constantly trying to get you to look in their stalls and 'best price'. Saw same things at home (obviously cheaper here) but nothing I wanted. Wandered the streets but 2hrs enough - couldn't wait yo get the resort shuttle back home!

Before the arts and crafts get going strong, this is a place to buy flowers, fruit and vegetables. It has a more traditional Indonesian flavor then and less of a tourist feel. Lots of the flowers are used in making the offerings that are ubiquitous in Ubud, not only at temples, but at homes and shops. An excellent selection of... More

If you spend more, you're wasting precious Ubud time. Go see other things (rice paddy fields, coffee plantations, Butur volcano, or just interact with locals!) Things here are the same, I just bought a silk kimono here they originally wanted 650,000 for, which I paid only 180,000 (still not cheap).

Very similar goods sold here as at the Kuta market, only cheaper from what I can gather. Very much in-your-face stall holders here too which I didn't like. Kind of annoying but that's Bali for you.

Spent a nice afternoon shopping in Ubud. There are loads of things to buy from brass ornaments to wood carvings to sarongs and skirts to souvenirs. The market is huge and generally inexpensive. Do remember to bargain a lot though!

Stocked to the brim with exotic wooden carvings, batik sarongs and shirts jewellery and handicrafts. Be prepared to barter and get the price down as the prices are inflated anyway because they know you are a tourist. It is definitely an experience good or bad it's up to you

Ubud is known as the cultural centre of Bali.We were however there for sometime for shopping.There are a large number of shops selling varied items.We bought some good hats and gift items.Bargaining is a must .There is a typical ambience of this place and one must be prepared to spend sometime here.

If staying in Ubud, recommend you leave your wallet at home for the first visit. Just take time to browse and get to know your way around. On your second visit its time to hone in on what you would like to buy and check out all the different stores selling what you want. It really helps if you are... More

Shifted to a new location from the last time we visited a few years back. Crowded and stuffy in the building but the ones along the lanes are okay and sunny. Art works are to be bargained hard to lower prices. Handicrafts are run of a mill mostly though. Still better than Kuta's market IMO and should visit it together... More
