About
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).

Beach Dresses
Mar. 2020
I thought that we had agreed to not visit this market again. My wife had admired a ladies beach type dress and been informed that they could be found in the market. A couple of enquiries, and a young lady from one of the stalls understood what my wife was looking for. She asked us to have a seat and dashed off, soon returning with an armful of dresses. The excitement, so many choices, and eventually four purchased. Next morning another visit, another dress and a handbag; happy seller and happy customer. All five dresses were good quality and excellent beachwear. Judging by the reaction back home, it looks as if another visit will be scheduled if visiting again.

Kuta Art Markets

It is an extensive market by the beach. However many stalls sell the same tourist tat and that includes the art stuff.

You also have to bargain hard. Worth a look and we also did buy some stuff.

Art Marjet?... souvenirs, t-shirts and ....magnets
Nov. 2019
We went here trying to find some modern or contemporary art. We find a narrow street market with hundreds of t-shirts, magnets... and other souvenirs materials. One or two places with some art. Does not deserve lost of time unless you need to buy some holidays souvenirs

Good variety of markets right by the beach
Sep. 2019
We shopped here a few times while staying nearby and on our evening walks to be beach for sunset.

Good variety of goods around here, clothing, shoes, souvenirs, jewellery and more. The stall holders can hassle quite a lot but if you are not happy with price just keep walking.
The lane is very busy just after sunset and can be reasonably busy with foot an vehicle traffic. Some cars, and motorbikes a little impatient.

I managed to get a few dress for $5 and $7 NZ each which I felt wasn't too bad. Be careful of quality and sizing tho. Some fabrics do tend to shrink in length.

We tried to barter for the blue tooth ipod earbuds in this area an found them to be alot dearer than elsewhere. And following us for quite some distance when we said no. A bit unusual but that's Bali.

The markets are worth a look at if you are in the area, and as I say very close to beach if you are heading to Kuta for sunset.

Land of the hustlers
Aug. 2019 • Couples
Oooo you need to have your eyes, ears, and mind on point for this...

So you get there all excited to see what clothes they have and immediately you are approached by a store owner. "hey mate where you from?". They then more or less pull you inside the shop stall and get really pushy .
Then you need to haggle.. You need to haggle for your life.. I found this part fun to be honest...

The quality and authenticity is questionable..

Dont spend loads. Be ruthless.. The shop owners are....

Place to get souvenirs for friends back home. Prices can be high. So we must haggle and be smart. Goods are locally made

disappointing - difficult to find the 'arts'
Aug. 2019
This is not worth a special visit and we didn't find much art - the place sells much of the same low-cost souvenirs as found throughout the area.

Too much hassle.
Mar. 2019 • Couples
I think that we will not bother to visit these markets during future Bali visits. There is still a great range in the many outlets crammed into the area but you are simply assailed by the vendors as soon as you venture into the area. A total contrast to our Christmas visit when none of the vendors were interested in selling, concentrating instead on preparations for the Galungan festival. You can deal with the ladies, a polite "no" is generally accepted. The men are deaf to rebuttals and more interested in selling Viagra, ganga and whatever, and it is an unpleasant experience if you wish to have a look prior to potential purchase. We decided to browse and purchase elsewhere without the hassle. Maybe we are getting too old to enjoy.
