Shopping in Bali

Bali is a treasure trove of handicrafts and fine art, antique and semi-antique furniture, paintings, delicately carved jewellery, masks, woven and dyed fabrics, wood and stone carvings.

Bargaining in markets, shops and art shops, is normal practice and getting a good price depends largely on one’s bargaining prowess. As bargaining forms a large part of the fun, remember to bring along some cash, as not all places accept credit cards – and be good humoured.
