Electronics/Phone/Computer shop(s) directions...

Looking for electronic products in Bali. I have found these locations searching old forum threads:

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

-RIMO Centre Bali opposite Ramayana store complex.

-Gold Street.

'-Carefour' on Sunset Road.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Sunset Road comes up in Google Map search (long road just back from Kuta runs to edge of airport). However, can't find Gold Street or Rimo Centre.

I'll be on a scooter. Direction from Tuban/Kuta anyone...?

Hi

Rimo Centre is a group of shops set back off the road almost directly opposite the Ramayana department store.

"Gold Street" is the location of the majority of gold dealers in Denpasar. I do not think it is called "gold street".

Hopefully another poster will give you more specific information.

cheers

Carrefour is part of a shopping complex and occupies the 4th floor.

They sell tv's-dvd,sound,computers,phones etc. It is a large offwhite building you cannot miss it.

Back again!

Ramayana and Rimo are on Jalan Diponegro Denpasar. Ramayana is No 103AB.

The Gold Street is Jalan Hasanudin Denpasar.

Carrefour is on the east side of Sunset Road, closer to Kuta than Seminyak.

As for directions, hopefully someone more experienced can assist you.

cheers

There are also lots of smaller electronics shops, particularly for mobile phones as Indonesians, particularly young ones, are totally addicted to them. Also many ordinary electrical shops sell cables, cords etc for a fraction of the price you'll pay in the West.

Also Rimo is not well signed and easy to ride past. Go slow.

Hi slk

We have travelled from Legian to Carrefour/Bali Galleria and last year I 'hired' a van driver at Bemo Corner to take me to Carrefour and also travelled by bike but went via the back blocks and i'd have to do that again to take in landmarks and give accurate directions.Carrefour is north(we have walked it from Bali Galleria so it's not far)from Simpang Siur roundabout/intersection by Bali Galleria/Planet Hollywood.Each time we have travelled up Sunset Road(so take the right hand lane)and then U turned at a break in the centre island,enter left hand lane and ride back to Carrefour driveway.There is a ticket booth on the right hand side where you pay to park your bike under Carrefour. I'll reply again with directions/best route into Denpasar from Tuban.

Hi Burns!

Thanks for stepping in with clear directions! I know where places are, just not the names etc. I thought Carrefour was on the east side, as that is where the sun comes up!!!! ha ha!!!

I am sure the op will appreciate your clear directions, well put!
