Cannot describe how disappointed we were with the market, it has become a collection of cheep souvenirs and clothing, the side street where wooden crafts are still being sold is worth a look and interesting. If you have absolutely nothing else to do visit, better...More

Been to Bali 4 times but managed to escape this place, cannot imagine how hot, crowded (not with shoppers but vendors and vehicles) and overwhelming a scenario this is compared to Seminyak, Ubud and Sanur where goods are displayed spaciously and more attractively. Clothes and...More

We read the reviews that this was a good place to visit while in Bali. Upon arrival, we quickly noted that it was no different than any other shopping districts in Bali. You can go, but don’t go out of your way or plan anything...More

If you think the local ole ole shops (gift items) too touristy and enjoy local shopping areas which gives you an opportunity to try your bargaining skills, then this is the place in Bali you should visit. They keep almost everything but what attracted me...More

This is a great spot for your shopping - you can find all of the classic tourist finds like wickers bags and T-shirt’s, but there are also paintings and wood carvings around. It is a lot less touristy and there are no crowds. The shop...More

There are a lot of small markets to shop pretty much for everything. Make sure you bargain with the vendors to get the best price.

Pasar Kumbasari and Badung in Denpasar, but beware of unsolicited guides aka comission takers and pickpockets. Bargain hard. Pasar Ubud is nice too, but pricier.

Sukawati art market opens on Sundays, business as usual. If you asked about the hours of operation, I would go there between mid-morning to late afternoon.

Hi Carofire I travelled around Bali solo for part of my two week trip in July. I used two drivers from the TA recommended drivers list. Both were great company, very knowledgable and they both had a great command of english. So I highly recommend Sila and Wayan Lia. If you would like any more further info pm me. Have a wonderful time in Bali. Jane

Leaving bags with taxi driver?? (4 Replies)
We will be travelling from Sanur to Ubud later this month . There are things like Sukawati art market & Celuk village, that we wish to see on the route between hotels. Is it safe to leave our bags with a driver?

Up to you. I would not but probably a lot of people on here would say it was OK.
