I was very disappointed. I have been to these markets many times, and enjoyed them more before the new look. The old traditional; markets have given way to a more up-market look. The bartering seems to have lost its spirit too, with starting prices way above what would be an expected starting price and stall holders not really interested in... More

We found a night market in Semanyak that was nice, I don't understand why Ubod is rated popular. It's dirty, hot and crowded with sub-par quality merchandise. If you are shopping for anything of value, it's a waste of time. Bali is very hot and humid, and walking through the Ubod market is even hotter and more humid than the... More

This place is big! With lots of shops and lots of sellers who want just YOU to buy from them, this is the perfect place to buy presents for the ones at home. But be prepared to bargain hard! You can make really good deals and you are able to find almost everything you could wish for and then some... More

I just looked at all the shoddy reviews for this market...... Of course it's overpriced...... Of course you have to barter..... That's the whole point! You can expect to have a great time bartering with the local sellers who will weave the best hard luck stories, but a bit of banter, chuck in a few Balinese phrases and don't pay... More

The Ubud markets are an institution. They are loud and boisterous and a hive of activity. Some visitors to Ubud shun the as there are so raucous but whether you are wanting a bag, a quilt, or just some spices it is worth the trip. Go take a look and be prepared to bargain hard. They love it. They expect... More

This place was filled with many handicraft and decorative products. However, everything is actually OVERPRICED! Remember to ask for discount!!! One can actually get at least 50% discount on almost everything!

If you don't like being ripped off, head somewhere else. Mostly junky items. Be careful of buying anything silver....most are fakes from my experience.

A nice market with a a variety of things to find but each shop usually as the same as their neighbour. You will find touristy items, colourful bags, statues and wooden masks and paintings. There is also cheap jewllery, dresses and fake branded sunglasses. If you are after fake branded shirts or bags head to Kuta for that.

Great place to shop if you can haggle your way through. Can get stuff at 20% of the price quoted. Great variety. Multiple shops.

Great bargains to have, but people grab you by the arms and pull you into their shops and harass you. I walked into one small shop and the owner came in behind me and wouldn't let me out without a struggle. Just be prepared to be harassed, but keep a smile on your dial and don't accept the first price.... More
