Shopping in Bali | #1 Art Shop + Best Beachfront Mall & Traditional Markets

Blacksmith soldering traditional jewelry in Bali, Indonesia - featured image

Shopping in Bali is both an adventure in tradition and a discovery of culture. Whether bargaining in local markets or hunting down the ultimate designer handbag sale, your shopping experience is guaranteed to include scores of traditional handicrafts, antiques, artwork and jewelry, charming boutiques and mega shopping malls. The best shopping spots in Bali open early and close late, and some never close at all!

AGODA EXTRA: Jewelry-making is an integral piece of Bali culture. Goldsmith and silversmith skills are passed down through generations of families. Custom jewelry shops and classes have popped up across the island, but the most concentrated clusters of Balinese jewelers are in Ubud and Sanur.

1. Enjoy luxury shopping & ocean breezes at BEACHWALK SHOPPING CENTRE

Luxury shopping draws loads of visitors to Beachwalk Shopping Centre, and the five-star view and on-site activities are why this open-air, seaside shopping resort’s motto is “Bali Starts Here.” A modern take on traditionalism, the thatched-roof complex not only overlooks Kuta Beach, but it also contains a cloth museum, a children’s play area and even a daycare. Buy traditional batik clothing at the heritage textile boutique Batik Danar Hadi, or catch a cultural dance performance in front of a musical fountain. End the day inhaling ocean breezes at sunset while dining on international or local cuisine in an open courtyard.

2. Shop for handbags & Indonesian clothing at UBUD ART MARKET

Wrap yourself in color with a leisurely stroll through one of Bali’s most noted day markets, where ikat and batik clothing are plentiful, and bargaining for Balinese paintings, woven baskets and wood carvings is highly expected. Located in the heart of Ubud, just opposite Ubud Palace, Ubud Art Market, with its rows of handbags, jewelry, traditional clothing and quadruple-colored Bohemian skirts, was featured in the movie “Eat, Pray, Love.” The market is open from about 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and known by locals as Pasar Seni Ubud.

3. Shop for Bali spices & flowers at PASAR SINDU night market

Liven up when the sun goes down with traditional shopping in a modern setting at Pasar Sindu in Sanur. While the popular market near Sindhu Beach is open during the day, the shopping party doesn’t really rev up until evening time, when vendors open their jam-packed stalls, and food carts roll in by the dozens. Bargain for everything from local spices and handmade textiles to kitchenware and native flowers.
