Sukawati art market, Gianyar, is a perfect place for those who just love to shop around or even for those who just want to see what typical Balinese souvenirs, gifts or crafts look like. If you can haggle and learn the average price, it will save you a lot of money compared to Legian, Kuta or Seminyak.You must dare to cut the offered price by 90 percent. They will probably pout or mumble in front of you but Sukawati art market is well known as a wholesale heaven so it should be that cheap; especially if you buy in bulk.

Haggle if you can! Sometimes they give you 300x the price, but if you know how to haggle, then you will get a good price. If you want to buy dream catchers, magnets, wood stuff, keychains, silver and bracelets, you should get them here along with temple sarongs. They have more of those here and are cheaper as well.

I had heard about this place a couple of trips ago but had not managed to get the time to get there, we spent a couple of hours perusing the market, general goods are pretty much the same as anywhere else in Bali, but the art works were pretty awesome, we ended up with a pretty nice abstract at a...

I visited with friends one day and just had to go back again the next day! Walk around a little before bargaining as we found one stall offered to sell basketware for just over half of the price that the first stall had offered. We were pleased with our purchases and would love to go back again just to buy... More

Markets with a more local feel than others we visited. We bought a lovely painting that was a very good price. The stall holders don't seem to be aggressive as in other areas and it was quite relaxing walking around looking at the arts and crafts. The toilets were something else and I found out after you had to pay... More

This is a traditional market in the Sukawati Village. If you have been to Ubud Market you may want to avoid this place as it will be very repititive. The same choices of souvenirs. The quality is not as good but one can certainly bargain a lot here and get stuff at the price he/she wishes. Interesting to visit once... More

The Sukuwati art market is quite big and we found it easier to get around than the art market in Ubud. I have seen this market described as becoming more popular. Far less tourists and more locals shop here yet selling the same goods. With less tourists be prepared to be approached and hassled by sellers. This was quite amusing.... More

The market was full of generic bali t-shirts, sandals, bag, and accessories that you can buy everywhere across Bali, but if you bargain hard enough. My rough rule of thumb is to bargain slightly less than half price and negotiate from there. If you're only buying few generic t-shirts/other souvenirs, it might not worth the trip & hassle (unless if... More

I would recommend going to sukawati first to find out what prices to pay every where else. Even though the shops were very full and hard to find things it certainly was a start to see how much things could be bartered for, for first time travelers to Bali
