Owner description: The shopping scene in Kuta is wonderfully eclectic. The area's backpacker heritage is still apparent in the street shopping along Jalan Legian and in areas like Kuta Square and the Kuta Art Market, but as tourists have increased in affluence, so has the merchandise, and the shops that sell them (see Jalan Legian's brigade of boutiques and surf shops, or the many air-conditioned shopping malls in South Bali that have become just as much a part of the landscape as the candi bentar, or split gate).

This is just a market selling your usual Bali souvenirs... definitely not an art market. All the stalls had much the same mass-produced tshirts, sarongs, fans and wooden penises!
Worth a look if you're after tacky souvenirs, but that's about all.

I went here a couple of times during my stay. The sellers on the main street are very pushy but on my second visit discovered the little alley shops off the street are far more accommodating for a bargain. The Bing Tang is also sold on ice by a few vendors in this area. Watch the women all the way down the end of the street. They do not understand what "No" means.

Really love to shop here. If you take your time and survey, you will always find something unique and interesting to buy. But be careful, the asking price is quite expensive. So you need to bargain for it. Always bargain for half the price.

There's quite a number of little shops all group together.
You can probably get a lot of what Bali has to offer there but be warned, it takes a brave person to make a good bargain with the merchants.
It's also a great place to just absorb the culture, people and life in Bali.
