Bali is known as a treasure house of interesting goods to buy. Products of various kinds from traditional antiques to the latest quality fashions in extraordinary displays await the shoppers. It is quite common to bargain in markets, shops and art shops for buyers, so having a good price is partly dependent upon one’s smartness in bargaining. Splendid local hand woven materials, silver and gold works, woodcarvings, garments and many other interesting things can be found at any market, art shop or art market. International standard ready made apparels are quite inexpensive, while qualified tailors and dress makers offer reliable 24-hours services.
Bargaining forms a large part of the fun of shopping in Bali. Remember to bring your cash, as not all places accept credit cards. Shopping hours are generally from 10am to 10pm.
You’ll find that shops selling similar items are generally grouped together. This makes comparing prices easy as you just have to go to the next shop to find the same thing!
