  • Address:

    Ubud Main Road, Ubud, Gianyar Regency, Bali

Start your day shopping at the sprawling Pasar Ubud at Ubud's town center, and then explore the streets - Jalan Monkey Forest in particular is lined with boutiques selling up market soaps, jewelry, and preserves.

Known as the cultural and artistic centre of Bali, Ubud is home to scores of artists and craftspeople. It is fitting, then, that Ubud Market is bursting at the seams with artworks, traditional sculptures and woodcarvings, batik shirts, sarongs and fabrics, among many other artistic odds and ends. This market is a double storey edifice, and you’ll often find a tour bus or two parked at the market front, as Ubud Market is internationally well known as a tourist destination. On that note, the vendors at this market are well versed in haggling and negotiating, so don’t hold back with your bargaining and don’t forget to smile!

The merchants enjoy bargaining with tourists as much as the tourists themselves so try to establish a baseline before you go in to buy. Most of the merchants downstairs will lose interest if you try to get a reasonable price. It is advisable to also try the shops upstairs where you will find the same products often for sale at lower prices. You will still need to use your best bargaining skills of course.
