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

It was a good experience. Some of the art works are very beautiful and would be a valuable souvenir , but clothes were almost the same in all the shops. You should bargain and be assertive and don't buy something on insistence of sellers.

The so called Ubud Art Market is a touristic nightmare. From the fruits to souvenirs, everything is marked up way more than even the supermarkets and other fixed priced shops. We had a local guy following us for more than 15 mins trying to get us to buy some sandals. Also everything sold is the same as all the other... More

We thought there would be a variety of arts and crafts to be seen. Turns out that everyone is selling the exact same thing at a slightly different price. Not everything is originally made in Bali. On top of that, you get sellers keep harassing you to buy. The biggest dissappointment are the prices. You can see how tough people... More

At first glance the market is quite interesting but it quickly becomes apparent that most of the stalls are selling the exact same things. As others have mentioned, prices start high (Sarongs generally offered at 200k which can be brought down to 20k). The main problem is the incessant harassment we received from the sellers. You couldn't look at anything... More

I can understand why many people from the city wouldn't like coming to this market because it's narrow and a bit stuffy but I'm ok with it because that's how the locals used to shop as well. I want to experience the local setting so it was quite an experience bargaining and shopping in the ubud market like the locals... More

Visited two years ago and what a big difference it makes. I was looking for some souvenirs and had visited some shops with fixed price items. I then went to the market and saw the same items. Of course they were way more expensive, for example fridge magnets were more than twice the price I saw elsewhere. Unless you enjoy... More
