  • A large selection of souvenirs, there is something for everyone! It is always nice to stroll in the middle of the stalls, but do not limit yourself to the pedestrian street, the Court and the ground floor of the buildings. There are stories where tourists are rare. Proposed pre-trade prices are very high so feel free from very low to achieve the price that you set. If you come before 8:30, you'll have an any other vision of this market because it is there then no memory but only fruits, vegetables and flowers as offerings. The atmosphere is totally different and we loved.

  • I suppose you have to go to the Ubud Art Market when in Ubud. To us it was just another busy tourist orientated market with lots of stalls selling the same / similar items (lots of sarongs, wood carvi...  more »

  • Good place to buy excellent wood work native to Bali. But you must know how to handle haggling and bargain. Be ready to offer 20-30% of quoted cost and also check several other stores before you choose to buy a certain product. It will give you and idea of what is a good price, never buy merchandise from the first store that offers it, look around before you close.
  • This used to be a beautiful little market where you could find small and unique things. Since Bali got even more popular it unfortunately transformed into a fairly huge place of identical market stalls, offering mainly the same goods and touting those loudly. A normal development as more people come to see this beautiful place and if it brings some prosperity to Ubud and it's people that's great. I'd rather walk down Jalan Monkey Forest though visiting the little and less cramped boutiques along the road. That all being said though, everybody here was friendly, just trying to win over the buyers' attention, so naturally it just didn't have that old charm anymore.
  • Best place for tourists to shop around in Ubud. Hundreds of small / big stalls & shops. Also visit the nearby street market at Jalan Karna which runs parallel to Monkey Forest road. You get stuff made up of cane, wood, fridge magnets, souvenirs, t-shirts, bags and paintings. Bargain hard, you should not pay more than 30-35% of the price quoted by shop keepers. Wide Variety, similar items being sold at different prices.
  • Make no mistake, it's a tourist trap. But with so much competition, the prices are in your favor if you're willing to barter. A great place to get trinkets for friends and family
  • If you're visiting Ubud I'd recommend taking a look here. A densely crowded place with a laid back touch. Lots of shops offer the same articles so you don't need to spend much time if you don't want to.
