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.

Visited on the evening which a lot of shops and stalls closed. However, we could buy something here. Prices are not expensive, but bargaining is essential. Location is in Ubud town centre so easy to access.

This busy market was great! Certainly heaps of opportunity to refine your haggling skills. Don't be afraid to walk away from the first stall as you will find the same item around the corner and can start again.

Having been to the market at Tanah Lot in the morning, we find the selection similar and more expensive. I bought some coasters paying only 10% of the first offer. So please bargain!
