  • Not really special. Each stall selling the same and about the price must be negotiated each time. In other words, a real tourist trap.

  • Clothes, gadgets, spices, vegetables, fruit, meat and fish, will sell you anything. Interested in negotiating, haggling with these market exchange. Bali people accustomed to Japanese tourists perhaps quite like what some people know Japan language.

  • Quick tip: negotiate, negotiate, NEGOTIATE. Overall, I found the first price vendors told me to be about 4x higher than what they were willing to accept. Now there are exceptions to this but just remember to always negotiate. Early morning 6am-8am - this is the place for fresh produce! I paid 10k IDR for bananas, 5K for a kilo of tangerines, 10-15K for half a kilo of snake fruit and 2K for one clove of garlic. ~11am-5pm - turns into a tourist market. Can be super overwhelming for some people, it's basically a maze of vendors all trying to sell you similar items. Upstairs tends to be more clothing, downstairs more trinkets and things. I visited the market about 4 times during my month stay in Ubud. I personally found the weekends to be overpriced - the prices here are more volatile than the stock market. One day they will start sarongs at 20K the next day they're starting them at 100K. I also noticed if you happen to look very white and touristy the prices they started at tended to be higher. I think less people go upstairs so they are more willing to negotiate, especially on a slow day a few hours before sundown. Overall, this place is a fun experience if you don't mind crowds and negotiating prices.
  • Negotiate all prices. We ended up paying double for 2 kg if fruit. The person we bought from at the market opened up the fruit and gave us a taste of each fruit we did nit know. Make sure to try the Mangosteen fruits. They are delicious!
  • my second time here. lucky that I didn't get too explore all the last time i came. more shops and alley to explore! and still feeling not enough. You have to bargain the price for almost every item from every stalls. But if i may give a kindly reminder, don't bargain too much if u find the price is fine for u. they earning money for daily expenses. bought few fans from kiddos, talked to them, and they r happy. Of course, we too!
  • I can understand that if you don't travel a load, this can feel like an interesting place to visit and shop.Well if you are seasoned traveler, you will be more like.."🤔That's It?" Hard to find anything really original..kind of full of those touristy stuff..The most funny part came when trying to haggle..Going from 800 thousand to 500 thousand, the guy just get up and says.".I don't have a time for this I'm going to eat my lunch"..Actually what is interesting generally in Asia, till they smile on you, than you should understand they just totally ripped you off..If they loose It, get angry, leaving..than you know you just get the price...still too high, but as low as it can gets as a tourist.. And please just drop the nonsense about those "poor people". The farmers has no chance to come and sell at these places..Thats only for certain selected ones.
  • It's a good market and will find many things here. Be sure to hassle as they will price things 10 times more expensive than they would sell it for.

Where to stay in Gianyar

Neighboring Ubud has more to offer in terms of accommodations, but Gianyar itself boasts a feeling of being off the beaten track--something its more frequented neighbor cannot provide. Stay in simple guesthouses for a real taste of life on the island at a low cost, or consider one of the more attractive resorts, where quirky architecture complements the scenic features of the landscape.
