We came to Kuta Art Market with high expectations, as we were told it was an alternative to Ubud Market. It's not even a quarter as good as Ubud Market though. Ubud Market had lots to offer - clothes, paintings, wooden carvings, souviners, etc, with plenty of scope for barganing.
Kuta Market is not an art market at all - just 2 or 3 streets full of clothes, and some bags, hats, and bedcovers. Hardly any shops selling souviners either. The clothes aren't even that great.
There were some really nice patchwork bedcovers available, but too expensive for me, despite bargaining down to 25% of the asking price.
There were one or two fixed price shops in the area, which offered a decent selection of bags, jewellery and magnets, which were quite reasonably priced. Worth a visit.
We were in and out of this market in half an hour, really nothing much to write home about. Save your time and money for Ubud market, its much better.
