The shopping scene in Kuta is wonderfully eclectic. The area's backpacker heritage is still apparent in the street shopping along Jalan Legian and in areas like Kuta Square and the Kuta Art Market, but as tourists have increased in affluence, so has the merchandise, and the shops that sell them (see Jalan Legian's brigade of boutiques and surf shops, or the many air-conditioned shopping malls in South Bali that have become just as much a part of the landscape as the candi bentar, or split gate).

Many stalls have new stock, some still have stock from 10 - 15 years ago. You need to glance in all stalls. Morning is not the best time to buy. The stalls closest to the beach were good. Make up was of good quality and very cheap. As usual kids clothes cheap.

Although the name is art market, but you can find every kind of things at this market. Paining, souvenier, dress, home decor etc are available in this market. Most of the visitor are the tourist, and the shopkeeper set the asking price well above the normal price. You need to bargain from half or sometimes one-fourth of the asking price.... More

The Art Market (look for the 'Pasar Seni Desa Adat Kuta' sign) are a convenient place to see a very wide range of products that would be available all over Bali (and perhaps from many other parts of Indonesia as well). Wood carvings, fabrics (shawls, sarongs, T-shirts, etc), contemporary and traditional paintings, and other handicrafts dominate. It's a good spot... More

Its a good place to shop for local souvenir but it is very expensive and even though bargaining is practiced here; it is difficult to reach mutual agreement for suitable price...bought a seashell bracelet here after 10 minutes of bargain for 100K rupiah but you can get the exact one for 10K rupiah at Krishna...

We arrived early before the tourist hordes and while there was a semblance of a cooling breeze. We found the stall holders to be much more friendlier than other markets that we visited. Sure, we had the 'just one more boss' as we passed each stall but you could joke and smile and all was well. No one got in... More

Vacation , but really just to shop. This place is wonderful for walking around a picking up fun items to buy. Be prepare to bargain but don't spend a lot on the item know that these items are low ticket items and know they aren't worth the high prices they are charging.

Really loved walking through this market. When we went it was raining so the paths were a bit flooded...wear shoes you don't mind getting soaked if it's a rainy day. Really important to bargain Hard here as they often try to sell you things worth $5 for $50!! You can get some good bargains if you are prepared to barter... More

I love Kuta markets, you will find the same same things for sale everywhere but it's a great fun experience. Visit market stall number 107 and meet Made and Luhvie, tell them Jason sent you, you'll be looked after well :)

The stuff is fairly similar to what you find elsewhere. It's very convenient if you are staying in Kuta and wish to shop. However, if you want a broader choice, try Ubud. And if you are looking for branded apparel outlets, Semniak may be a better location.

Bought a couple of beach sarongs here which were way cheaper than those in Discovery Mall and Lippo mall. I had to haggle though, but it was all good. The place is a bit cramped, but good enough. Although, Sukawati Art Market in Ubud has better choices of small items for souvenirs like key chains, wood stuff and the like.... More
