Shopping for Art and Crafts
For the first time visitor, Bali is just like a huge Bazaar. The main tourist areas, Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Sanur, Ubud, Nusa Dua, Candi Dasa, and Lovina are shopper’s paradise. There are literally thousands of shops, stalls and street side merchants.
The main shopping areas are around Kuta squares, the are market near the beginning of Jalan Kartika Plaza, Jalan Pantai which runs from bemo corner to the beach, Jalan Singosari, which connect Jalan Raya Kuta with Jalan Kartika Plaza, Jalan Legian which runs north from Bemo corner, and all the little lanes such as Poppies I and Poppies II which lead off from it.
includes jalan Legian itself and the alleys which runoff from it, Jalan Melasti with its Art Market, Jalan Padma, and Jalan Padma utara, and Rum Jungle road. Seminyak includesJalan Double six, famous for it’s sarongs, clothing and batik, Jalan Laksamana and Jalan Raya Seminyak itself.
shops in Sanur are centered on two main streets, Jalan Danau Tamblingan and Jalan Danau Poso.
Ubud seems to offer things found nowhere else in Bali, so it’s worth a visit. Main shopping streets are JalanMonkey Forest, Jalan Hanoman and connecting lanes. The large art and craft market on the corner of Jalan Monkey Forest and the main road is one of the best on the island
shops are to be found in the 5 starshotels, along the Bypass leading to Nusa Dua and the charming village of jalan Srikandi
along the highway and on the small road which runs down to the dolphin statue at the beach
Denpasar, and the other towns of Gianyar, Tabanan, Klunkung,and Amlapura don’t really have tourist oriented shopping areas, so you could visit and have city tour in each areas.
