    The skillful Balinese workmanship has made the Bali wooden crafts so attractive. They all display in the stall with higher price waiting for one who like and appreciate the art to bring them home. For the priceless item, one who love it can always negotiate for a better price. They owner can help you to arrange the item to be freight to your home address.
    This few photos were taken at Tanah Lot.

    Praia Beachwear: Bali Online Bikini Shop - Delivery to your Hotel!

    by Diane_Ash Written Jun 7, 2012
    Brazilian Bikini Brand Cia.Mar��tima

    I found this online bikini shop while i was looking for some nice bikinis to buy in Bali. I've been looking around to buy bikinis in Bali for a while, but since I'm quite picky when it comes to quality and design, I haven't really found many brands in Bali that offer good quality.

    Praia Beachwear is an online company that is currently only selling one brand, which is called Cia.Marítima, a high-end Brazilian beachwear brand, that I happen to know after a friend brought me one of these bikinis from Brazil (yes all my friends know i'm such a bikini addict). And since then I just fell in love with these brazilian bikinis!

    The wonderful thing about this online bikini shop is that they bring the bikinis to you, as long as it's an adress in Bali.

    I'm always a bit hesitant to order clothes online, but I didn't hesitate to order from them since they just send a salesgirl to your place, where you can try the bikinis you selected on the website, before you buy them.

    If you want, you can buy them, but there is no obligation to buy.

    The bikinis are a bit on the pricy side (between 120 - 200 USD), but you get what you pay for: an international designer brand, the best quality fabrics, really nice designs and they fit amazingly comfortable.

    I'm definitely going to order from them again!

    What to buy: Bikinis, bikinis, bikinis.

    They are selling Brazilian bikinis, but not all of them have the (in)famous brazilian cut.

    Most of the bikinis they have, have the normal cut bottoms and even the ones that have the more daring Brazilian cut bottom still look stylish and elegant in my opinion.

    They are currently selling their bikinis also in two shops in the Seminyak/Oberoi area.

    I ordered mine by calling them and a few hours later a smiling Indonesian girl was at my hotel room with the bikinis i selected. She patiently waited while i was trying them on and gave me some tips on which bikinis suited my style.

    I bought two and I just love them!

    What to pay: 120 USD - 200 USD

    4.CHOOSE A FEW ITEMS ( TO APPEAR LIKE A BULK PURCHASER ! MORE THAN ONE ITEM WILL GENERALLY QUALIFY FOR SOME DISCOUNT)
    5.ENTER NEGOTATION AND DECIDED WHAT YOU WANT TO PAY .
    6.EXPECT THE FIRST COUNTER OFFER TO BE HIGH AND APPEAR NEUTRAL.
    7.BE FRIENDLY AND COUNTER WITH AN SIGHTLY LOWER OFFER THAN YOUR TARGET.
    8.AT THIS POINT , WE CAN DECIDE TO EITHER PERSIST OR GO ALONG WITH A SLIGHTLY HIGHER PRICE.

    Shopping center bali collection: Bali Collection Nusa Dua

    by Chellenz Written Sep 26, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    this is a shopping mall with a good aray of shops and a little market section where we found a few bargains. Actually a really quiet shopping center alot of the time you only pass a few other people shopping which can be a nice change for bali and the sales people are happy to let you wander around...its alomost like a little escape back to the norm of n.z and au shopping!!

    There is a few good bag shops(my sister had hers checked at the genuine shop in au when she got back and they said it was the real thing...she paid $450au (alot to spend in bali) but its worth $3000 so a good deal!!), clothing shops and eateries....baskin robbins was good in the heat of the day too!!

    What to buy: pretty much anything you need a good little supermarket shop in here too!!

    What to pay: Probably a little more expensive than other options in bali but still reasonable!!

    Matahari: Easy shopping in bali Matahari

    by Chellenz Written Sep 26, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    has a bit of everything is great to shop for perfume, makeup,toys, clothing but my favorite thing to buy here is SHOES!!! There is a few Mataharis on the island they are large stores with lots of choice all at fixed price!!
    When you have enough of bargaining this is a good place to head as they have fixed prices on everything including bali t-shirts,keyrings, towels pretty much anything like that you would want!

    The way the shop works is interesting usually they will take the products from you while you are shopping and they write them up on a invoice give this to you and you collect the goods from the cashier desk...only catch there is lots of cashiers check which one you should be going too to pick up your goods!! You may end up getting goods from three different cashiers if you get stopped in different areas of the store!!

    What to pay: all fixed prices!! Reasonable pricing!!

    Installing Alang Alang Roofing

    by balisunshine Written Jun 17, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Looking from under
    3 more images

    If you have never been to Bali,
    you may become quite enchanted
    by the beauty that the traditional
    alang alang roof adds to many of its structures.

    Alang alang thatching has been used
    in Indonesia for hundreds of years
    on the islands of Bali, Lombok, Sumbawa,
    Timor and Sumba as a
    traditional system of roofing.

    The alang alang roof is
    a good insulation against heat
    and is very attractive to look at,
    both inside and out.

    It is durable, with reports of it lasting to twenty years,
    although by this time it would be very thin and unattractive.
    More commonly it has a life span of seven or eight years.

    Nil: Bargining power

    by THLIN Written Feb 21, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    local bambo frames

    Please please please, when you are shopping in this lovely island, DO BARGIN. DO NOT be shy, starting from one-tenth of the price and adding up gradually. Do not cut the price into half, because you lose your bargining power once you make your price too high.
    Do remeber one thing - BARGIN.

    What to buy: Everything from local wood carving, painting, to t-shirt with BALI on top of it.

    What to pay: Strongly recommend that you pay Rupiah. US Dollars, Euro and Japanese Yen are widely acceptable but the rates may not be so good. So prepare for enough rupiah once you want to do some real shopping.

    None in particular: Pricing based on radius

    by MagePrincess Written May 18, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Price of goods in Bali is quite dependable upon its location. You can find almost the same goods anywhere in Bali, with the same quality with only one difference - price! In Kuta area, the pricing is the highest, followed by Legian Street and then Seminyak. Because I had 6 days of exploring to do, after exploring Kuta and finding some things I liked, I was going to return to the same shop towards the end of my stay. Then I realised, Legian Street offered lower prices. When I went to Seminyak subsequently, their opening price for the same item was 60% off the price offered in Kuta. Upon asking politely for a reduction in price, the shopkeeper further reduced the price. So I kinda bought my item at a 50% discount.
    My suggestion is, shop around Kuta first to find items you like. Then search for it at Legian or Seminyak. Only if you can't find it there, then return to Kuta for the purchase.
