Great Bali market. Lots of handy crafts. You need to do the normal bartering but the shop owners are very friendly. Definitely worth a visit.

The front of the market looks fenced up as part of it is now building site, but there is still an entrance opposite the palace to get in. Not a market for fake bags etc but a place where a lot of arts and crafts are sold, a nice stroll through to get souvenirs and not too crowded. Would recommend

Great place for Balinese souvenirs. Would say that the market probably has most of the traditional stuff you wld wna bring back from Bali (e.g. wooden bowls, rattan bags, paintings, clothes, ornaments etc). 100% haggle for everything you buy, the prices they first quote are heavily inflated (likely partly because of the lack of sales during the pandemic), so they’re quite eager to make a sale and wld rather sell u stuff at cheap prices rather than have no sales at all.

Oh and just a note - our driver told us that Ubud Art Market was closed for renovation but it seems that all the stalls simply setup shop again next door along a street of some sort.

Ubud art market is a haven for souvenir and home decor shoppers. My family really liked bringing back small trinklets, souvenirs and some home decor items from this place. The quality and make of all items was quite good. The setting also is amazing with road-side location bang in middle of Ubud city center with amazing cafes and restaurants nearby.

One tip is to negotiate like crazy as the original price is heavily over-quoted for tourists. While this can come naturally to Indians like us but prices can go down to 20-30% of originally quoted price (we ended up buying a round jute-type bag for IDR 60K when they originally quoted IDR 300K).

It offers you a food and art market. If you’d like to find authenctic Ubud food, come earlier in the morning, it has a range of snacks, Balinese nasi campur, and ayam betutu, so tasty!

The minus point was the place itself isn’t too clean.

As the sun goes down, the shopping comes to life in the bustling market in Ubud, Bali. I visited at twilight and found lots of variety, with arts and craft, textiles and trinkets, at the forefront. Some of the space is a bit cosy. Enthusiastic sellers but at no time did I feel it was high pressure. An enjoyable street style market (see my Coffee Chill TV YouTube Vlog) and well worth checking out.

Ubud Market was a great way to buy some of the typical souvenirs that you see people picking up in Bali, although in hindsight we found that Ubud was one of the more expensive places on the Island to find those kind of things. We went early morning, after hearing you're more likely to get cheaper prices, due to the superstition of the first buy of the day being lucky.

I bought a couple of dresses for around 100,000IDR each. I'd advise checking the quality of the clothes before buying, I noticed holes in a few of the dresses I picked up, luckily before I'd bought them.

The famous basket bags that you see everywhere, in various patterns and colours, were selling for around 200,000IDR. I was a bit worried about the haggling situation, I wouldn't say its my comfort zone, but I went in there with an idea of what I wanted to pay and walked away if I couldn't get it. Sometimes they'd keep pushing but I found it overall pretty stress free.

We enjoyed a short break here on the return drive to Kuta. Although there were many tourists, there simply wasn't the masses as on previous visits. The atmosphere was fairly subdued, even stallholders refrained from yelling. It's still a very vibrant market, so much merchandise and such variety. If you need a little more excitement, ask your driver to park within the market. I don't know how ours's managed the feat but with a few adjustments to other vehicles by the ticket attendant, we had secure parking for R5,000. The markets are definitely worth visiting if in Ubud or surrounding area, but, as others reviewers have mentioned, hone your bartering skills, beware of scammers, check and re-check anything that you intend purchasing and ensure it remains in full view.

While in Bali, we also went to the famous Ubud Art Market and bought pretty handbags and windchime from there. The vibrant market retails everything from clothes to jewellery to bags, souvenirs, footwear, gifting options and much more. Be sure to bargain a lot! We also got a glimpse of the Royal Palace from outside but didn’t go inside.

The market is much bigger, than I initially thought so we actually ended up taking it in two turns... It was way too hot anyway.
You kind of have the same stuff at every stall, but I suggest to go around first, find out about the prices in general, than go back to a stall that has most of the things you are actually looking at buying and make a good deal for all items. This definitely worked good for us and we ended up paying nothing like the prices we got separately from different sellers.
