Good for the experience if you want to check out a market, but there are better places to shop. As always, be prepared to haggle. This was the first market I went to, and I'm glad I waited to spend any money because there are lots of other places to go to.

This was one of two galleries in Ubud I visited today on my overnight private tour of north and central Bali. I have not added to my collection of Balinese paintings in several years so I wanted to update myself on latest trends. Semar Kuning offers an extensive portfolio ranging from traditional temple art to various Ubud styles (village scenes,... More

This is not worth a visit. Cons: hot steamy, overwhelming smell of rotting trash which is dumped right in the middle. Cramped conditions with vendors haggling at you from all angles to buy their stuff...which is basically the exact same stuff they all sell, that you can buy at a nice shop with air conditioning and no trash dump in...

We stopped here on our tour we walked into a building and the insanity began it was very hot inside, the stalls were not even a meter you couldn't stand in the stall and look. I found that this was the worst you were just constantly hounded by the stall owner who would grab you and pull you into their... More

The market in Ubud is very big and is spread out across four levels and one long street. The best time to come is during the day as the market usually shuts down at dusk. You can easily spend hours exploring this unique market and the vast variety of goods that it offers. Ubud is the creative and artistic center... More

Excellent to buy souvenirs, negotiate prices they are always willing to agree a price good for both parts. It doesn´t smell very good but it is totally worth it. Walk in between the streets you can find the same things but less crowded. If you go in the morning time, you can find the traditional foodmarket and get fresh fruit... More

There are such lovely paintings, jewels, carvings and artefacts! But you have to haggle, and you have to haggle hard if you want to get a good price on it all! All people were smiling and the service was good, it is very peaceful and nice.
