Ubud is a haven for arts and crafts and you can find some of the island’s major art markets in and around this region. As you discover a wealth of paintings, carvings, traditional garments and unique knick-knacks on your shopping adventures in Ubud, you’ll find some bearing price tags, but most without – meaning you can always put your haggling skills to the test.

    Along the main streets like Jalan Raya Ubud, you’ll find a continuous row of fashion boutiques. From the main street to the Monkey Forest in Padangtegal, and from Sanggingan to Pengosekan, discover a great mix of shops selling unique items and great bargains from international designer brands and local artists.

    Ubud Art Market, or 'Pasar Seni Ubud', is a central landmark that’s just across the road from Ubud Royal Palace. The market is open daily and features numerous shops presenting everything from beautiful silk scarves and handmade woven bags to statues, kites and a huge variety of handicrafts. Most of the goods found here are products made in the neighbouring villages of Pengosekan, Tegallalang, Payangan and Peliatan.

    The market’s central location makes it a convenient place to bargain hunt in Ubud, especially if you’re looking for unique Balinese souvenirs to take home. Just beware of inflated prices – start bargaining down to a third of the initial offer.

    Sukawati Art Market, or Pasar Seni Sukawati, is Bali’s most distinguished and long-standing art market. It’s where both visitors and local residents can seek and purchase distinctively Balinese art items such as paintings and sculpted wooden figures and traditional handmade products.

    Most of the shopkeepers here are craftsmen themselves, which makes bargaining a better experience compared to the more popular Ubud Art Market. The market’s main building can get crowded at times with bargain hunters and locals sourcing their household and daily necessities. It’s an alternative, inexpensive and complete shopping spot that’s situated along most tour routes to Bali’s central and northern regions.

    The village of Guwang is home to the Guwang Art Market, which is locally called Pasar Seni Guwang’. The market shares many similarities to the art market of Sukawati, particularly in terms of the items sold. Even so, Guwang provides an alternative shopping destination for visitors who wish to avoid the crowds that often travel to Sukawati during peak periods.

    Besides the art market serving as a source of Bali souvenirs and handicrafts, the village streets around Guwang are also filled with many household art shops and painting galleries. Price-wise, the similar items sold at the Guwang market share little difference with those at Sukawati Art Market, but there are certain art items typical to one market that you probably won’t find at the other.

    The village of Celuk, approximately 4 km southwest of central Sukawati in the Gianyar regency, is Bali’s major centre for gold and silver crafts. The main road of Jalan Raya Celuk is lined up with galleries and workshops, and the village is usually a highlight itinerary on tours to the central and northern regions such as Ubud and Kintamani.

    Celuk is also a link between Bali’s Batubulan-Mas-Sukawati-Ubud so-called ‘golden pentacle’ of artisans and craftsmen. The jewellery pieces are of high quality and often feature unique and elaborate designs thanks to skills handed down through generations. Almost all households in the village are home to jeweller families and each Celuk household has a signature design and varying pattern.

You can enjoy the longest row of art shops in the region driving up Jalan Raya Tegallalang. Some shops here state fixed prices – even so, you can still try your bargaining skills.
