Beklager, denne siden er ikke oversatt til språket ditt ennå …

    Bali art markets offer unique shopping experiences, where you can discover a treasure trove of artworks and handicrafts by talented local craftsmen, all at bargain prices. Most of the art markets in Bali comprise a sprawling scene of small kiosks arranged within a semi-open-air complex, though some arrange their stalls within a dedicated building.

    All of these markets draw both local and international shoppers looking for a great deal on unique motif batiks, intricate Balinese carvings, and iconic knick-knacks you won’t find outside the island. Even if you aren’t in for the haggling or buying anything, a visit to any of these art markets provides you with a glimpse into the wonderful artistry and creativity of the island’s craftsmen.


    Ubud Art Market


    The Ubud Art Market is one of the most visited art markets in Bali. Locally known as Pasar Seni Ubud, it’s one of Ubud’s central landmarks, located just across the Jalan Raya Ubud road from the Puri Saren Royal Palace. It plays a central role in Ubud’s social and economic life.

    The market has 2 sections: the eastern part serves as a traditional morning market where locals shop for daily groceries and household items. The art market, located to the west, is where you’ll find unique items such as colourful silk scarves, tropical design shirts, statues, kites, handwoven bags, baskets and straw hats. The Ubud Art Market is open every day except on Nyepi (the Saka New Year) when the whole island shuts down for a whole day.

    Sukawati Art Market

    Near Ubud

    Sukawati Art Market is the most longstanding art market in Bali and is regarded as the mother of all of the island’s similar markets. It's named after the village where it resides, which is famous for its communities of traditional artists, comprising sculptors, painters and dancers. Sukawati is often a highlight on tour itineraries and the first place that comes to mind for a myriad of souvenir choices at great bargain prices.

    The art market consists of the main 2-storey building that is filled with many different stalls, some specialising in garuda sculptures and Kamasan-style paintings. With enough time on your hands, it’s best to patiently browse through and ask for prices from several different stalls before finally striking a deal.

    Guwang Art Market

    Near Ubud

    Guwang Art Market is what many consider to be the sister art market of Sukawati, thanks to its considerable size and similar offerings. The market is the main arts and souvenir shopping destination within the Guwang village community in Gianyar regency. It's also a nice alternative to the usually crowded Sukawati.

    The main market building is the centrepiece, but you can also find many bargains around the perimeter, including traditional food stalls serving Balinese cuisine, snacks and refreshments. Guwang itself is regarded as an art village, so you’ll see rows of sculptors’ workshops, art shops and mini galleries along the Jalan Raya Guwang main road.

    Kumbasari Art Market


    Kumbasari Art Market is Denpasar’s longstanding art market that forms the central landmark and the city’s main traditional market complex, together with the Badung Traditional Market. The art market is located on the western side of the Badung River, opposite Badung Market. It occupies a 2-storey building with small art kiosks, textile and electronics shops. Locals source their daily household necessities and temple ritual items from several shops within the complex.

    The 2nd level has a large hall where you can find a huge variety of souvenir items and art pieces, including silverware, mini sculptures, Balinese batiks, paintings and more. Some stallholders apply fixed prices, but most shops expect you to bargain heavily.

    Kuta Art Market

    Kuta Beach

    Kuta Art Market is an important part of Kuta’s history, and still plays a major role as one of the longstanding traditional landmarks in the area. It’s increasingly being overshadowed by the more modern Kuta Square arcade, but remains a popular place to grab some souvenirs. Locally called Pasar Seni Kuta, the art market is right at the junction of Jalan Bakung Sari and Jalan Kartika Plaza.

    You can easily access the rows of kiosks from the street side by Kuta Square or the beachside south of the Balawista lifeguard watchtower. The kiosks showcase various souvenirs and locally crafted goods that are produced elsewhere (often in the workshops of the Gianyar regency). However, it’s convenient for shopping sprees on short stays in Kuta. Prices can be high, so always bargain hard.

    Beliggenhet: Jalan Bakung Sari, Kuta, Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia

    Åpent: Daily from 8am to 10pm
