Markets

GUIDE TO MARKET PRICES AND SHOPPING

Shopping in market stalls or from beach sellers can be a challenge at the best of times.  Consider these handy tips:

  • Negotiation is expected.  First offered prices are often double or triple the real price
  • Don’t reveal this is your first trip to the island (even if it is)
  • Have a clear price you are willing to pay before you start negotiating
  • Knowing a little Bahasa indonesian will often reward you with a better price
  • Be aware shopkeepers do this for a living and are persistent and “athletic” negotiators
  • Go early for best “Morning Price”
  • If you think it’s a reasonable price, then do the deal
  • Remember that 10,000Rp is equal to approximately $1.00Aus
  • Watch the zero’s on your notes as it can be confusing.
  • Be prepared to walk away
  • If you buy multiple items, you should be able to negotiate a lesser price
  • Maintain your sense of humour and be polite

Please remember many of you will be able to secure better prices than those stated here, whilst others will not be able to secure as good a price as stated here.  This is a “guide” only.

* Prices quoted in Indonesian Rupiah.

SEMINYAK SQUARE MARKETS

If you’re an avid shopper and seeking a good selection of women’s clothing, you’ll enjoy the markets at Seminyak Square!

image

Unlike many market stalls elsewhere, the Seminyak Square markets have a good array of modern styles and fabrics. Colourful kaftans with and without pompoms, maxi dresses, stylish sarongs, killer kimonos – they’re all there at Seminyak Square markets.

image

A selection of sunglasses, bags and jewellery are also available.

image

Bargaining in markets is normal practice and getting a good price depends largely on one’s bargaining prowess .Having said that, expect to pay a little more than the usual market fare here.  Well worth it for the unique selections though!

image

When you’ve had enough of market shopping, there’s a plethora of fixed price shops opposite and in the surrounding streets.

Address:  Jalan Kayu Aya, Seminyak

image

Tip:  The Kura Kura bus has a stop at Seminyak Square.  Check their website for details: http://kura2bus.com/

Fixed Price Market Shopping in Tuban

??????????

If it is hassle-free market shopping that you are seeking, fixed price market shops are very appealing!

??????????

Not surprisingly there are a multitude of Fixed Price Market Shops now that soothe the keen shopper’s stress levels.

It had been quite a while since I had ventured out to South Kuta, in Tuban so I was fascinated to see numerous shops featured often side by side, advertising “Fixed Price”.

??????????

?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ??????????

Simply head south from Discovery Mall on Jalan Kartika and you will easily locate these shops.

Happy Shopping!

FIXED PRICE SHOPPING TIP:

 

Image

The ever popular Ketut’s Fixed Price shop in Legian is often crowded these days and you have to stand in line to be served.

You can easily bypass this however by shopping at Ketut’s Family Shop, run by her baby brother, Wayan!

Image

Ketut’s Family Shop is literally a short walk away and it amazes me that not many people know of it.

Image

Shopping here is a breeze!  There are no crowds and stock is plentiful.  Clothing, sunglasses, bags, belts, perfumes and even small toys are sold here by the helpful and always friendly, Wayan.  He will offer you bottled water, just as Ketut does (and has even been known to offer a Bintang!!)

Image

By shopping at Ketut’s Family Shop, you are continuing to support her family and benefiting from a trustworthy fixed price source.

  • Did you know that Ketut is one of 9 children?  (8 girls and 1 boy, Wayan).

Image

*Please let Wayan know that Exclusively Bali referred you ~

Serious Shopper Alert!

image

Bali can offer a menagerie of shopping: from one-off designer items to market gear!

image

If you’re seeking bargain priced summer and beach fashions including great leather wallets and bags, dress jewellery and shoes, head to the markets at Seminyak (known as Seminyak Flea Markets).  Here you will find a good selection of market type purchases.

image

Although you may pay a little more than Kuta or Legian, the quality and design is often improved and more varied, and still at discount prices.

image

Don’t forget to bring a half empty suitcase to fit in all your purchases.

Happy shopping! Xx

Seminyak Flea Markets

Address:  Oberoi Road, Seminyak

image

HINT:  It can get rather steamy under the shade cloth market roofing, so call in at La Sicilia, Seminyak located next door for a cool drink after all your fab shopping purchases.

La Sicilia, Seminyak, Bali

Jalan Laksmana (Oberoi) 151, Seminyak
