Boasting amazing shopping, lively markets and a huge range of affordable products, it's no surprise that that many visitors to Bali return home with an additional suitcase full of holiday bargains. Bali shopping is one of the most popular experiences while visiting the island. Offering some of the cheapest beach wear, resort wear, jewellery and furniture, Bali markets are a fantastic place to pick up a bargain or 10, while testing out your haggling skills. Bali also offers a great range of boutiques and shopping malls throughout the island that also have cheaper prices, however haggling is not encouraged in these kinds of stores.
Ubud is home to a range of quirky boutiques, specialty stores, and markets. The two main markets are Sukawati Market and the Ubud Market. Ubud Market is renowned as a one-stop shopping destination, while Sukawati Market has a reputation for being the cheapest - so if you have the time it's definitely worth visiting both. The Sukawati Market offers clothing, fabrics, cushions, bags and accessories while the Ubud Market has a great range of rattan bags, placemats and baskets as well as sarongs, masks, fabrics, home décor and coconut husk crafts.
Further south in Kuta, Legian and Seminyak the focus is less on craft and more on clothing, shoes and trendy surf products. This is where you'll find big name brands like Billabong, Quicksilver, Body and Soul, Stussy and Ocean Pacific at practically half the price you'd find them anywhere else. Kuta is generally the cheapest with Seminyak being slightly more high end and Legian action as the buffer in between.
Aside from the boutiques, there are also a number of outlet stores where you'll find some great holiday bargains. The southern areas of Bali are also where the majority of homewares and furniture can be found. Offering much cheaper prices than other parts of the world, here you'll find big ticket items at small ticket prices including dining sets, frames, mirrors and lamps. These designer products are very popular amongst shoppers and there are a number of reputable retailers to purchase from. Perfect for visitors looking to get the best bang for their buck, Bali shopping is sure to impress.
