  • The right place for buying souvenir if you have high bargain skill. Bargain more than 50% is must and do not worry, the seller will not become angry to you. Recommended go to second floor since the shop not get much customer and they will thread you very nice if you go to their store.
  • A very loud and crowded place. Plenty of shops offering pretty much exact same things therefore it begs a question whether it's authentic or rather mass produce...If you want a cheap souvenir like a Bintant t-shirt (and know how to bargain) this is the place to come get it. If you want to purchase something unique, stay away from this place.
  • 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.
  • Interesting and eclectic mix of stores. It's as safe as any other market in Bali but keep your hands in your pockets as some folks will try and relieve you of your wallet. Some of the store owners can drive a hard bargain. Watch out for the locals who use it as a thoroughfare for their scooters.
  • 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.
