Legian is busier an full of families, I tend to find Seminyak a bit more upmarket and more couple orientated, though this is a generalisation and you will get a mixture in both areas. Legian has a lot of Market shopping where as Semnyak is more Boutique orientated. There are good restaurants in both areas.

Yes we prefer Legian as our choice as everything is very accessible and within walking distance.

We head to Seminyak our first day to stock up from Bintang Supernarket and it is very quick and easy taxi ride for restaurants and shopping.

We have stayed in Seminyak on our 3 previous visits. Quieter, better resaurants and a slightly easier syyle to things. Legian is busier, a wider choice of activities and cheaper shopping. Both are superb with quality resorts to choose from. Royal Beach in Seminyak is beachfront at a reasonable price.

Legian and Seminyak don't actually have any space in between them, like our suburbs here. There's a mass of shops, restaurants, hotels/accommodation, temples and the occassional local home that stretches from Bit of a geography lesson here, hope this helps.

There's a mass of shops, restaurants, hotels/accommodation, temples and the occasional local home that stretches from the airport in the south to Seminyak in the north and there's no discernable break between the 'suburbs' (in order from south to north, Tuban, Kuta, Legian and Seminyak). This also kind of covers the spread of development over the last 30 or so years – Kuta first then up through Legian to Seminyak.

The rough rule of thumb is the further north you go, the more expensive and up-market the shops and accommodation are but that’s only general - there are cheap and expensive options scattered all around.

The nominal division between Legian and Seminyak is Jalan Arjuna (aka Jalan 66) although there’s nothing to tell you you’ve crossed over when you’re there.

Lizzy is right but I’d add that there are a lot more villas in Seminyak and these attract families or large groups of people staying together, and these tend to have high walls for privacy so it has more of a closed off feeling.

Also agree with TLM in that Legian is more compact, Seminyak more spread out. Personally I prefer Legian because it’s busier but depends on your own preference.

Hope you find what suits you!
