  • Geneva Handicraft: Geneva Handicraft - The Ultimate handicraft store

    by picknick Written Apr 1, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the mother of all local handicraft store in Bali. It has 3 levels of local handicrafts at FIXED price, no bargaining needed, each level the size of a warehouse. In fact, we feel like we are in a warehouse because of the rows and rows of shelves on each level containing all the things you can find in the local markets ike Sukawati or Ubud. In fact, this place has much much more. I found out about this place from a Bai forum, and asked my driver to bring me there. He did not know of this place, and is just as surprised about the size. He even said that the prices in Geneva is cheaper than what you can bargain for in even the cheapest markets, and he couldn't believe such a place exist in Bali.

    What to buy: They sell mostly handicrafts. See their website.

    Krishna: Oleh Oleh Khas Bali!

    by goutammitra Written Apr 2, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Oleh Oleh Khas Bali! You will come across this sign at many places number of times. This means Bali souvenir shop. We were taken to Krishna for shopping on the very first evening at Bali. We felt it was very expensive but later we found , it was better, value for money, no bargain place for Bali souvenir shop. After visiting almost 20 shops and shopping complexes, we felt it was the best, reasonably priced and better than any other shop in Bali.

    It's government run place with mostly girls working with very very smiling face and attitude. They all understand English and shall help you even if you are a small customer!

    What to buy: I shall recommend go for Bali Soaps, Aromatic body oils, paintings, Sarong and small handicraft items. There are many many things right from food stuff to clothes.

    What to pay: Anything between USD$ 1- 100!

    Shopping Street of Kuta, Bali: Go for Bargain !!!!! Up to 80%

    by goutammitra Written Apr 28, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The street is full of shops selling souvenir to Tee Shirts. You may get some good bargain here if you have the ability and patience to bargain. Sometimes the shopkeeper may tell you to keep the thing you want to buy and look for another shop but don't just loose your patience and may increase a few thousand Rupiah on the last price offered. He may perhaps sell you.

    Guarantee: Just don't expect. It's flea market!

    Some shopping tips

    by OneNightInBangkok Updated Sep 22, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You would find it useful to know a few Balinese phrases when you do your shopping. To ask for the price of an item, say "Berapa ini?" Expensive is "mahal" and "mura" means cheap. Try to talk to them in their native language and they would appreciate that. In return, they won't give you a hard time bargaining. You will definitely enjoy your shopping more.

    Most sellers would assume that you have lots of money with you so they would quote exorbitant prices. Here's an example, for an item initially priced at 100,000 offer 25,000 for it and bargain hard. Do not pay for more than 1/3 the quoted price. If the seller will say "me bankroooot" (bankrupt), tell her that you will look for the same item at another shop and pretend to step out of her store. She will run after you and give you the item at the price that you offered. It works all the time. =)

    What to pay: These prices are in local currency (Rupiah):

    Coke: 3,200
    Bottled Water: 3,200
    Wood Placemats : 12,000
    Baskets : 1,000 - 5,000
    Caps : 15,000
    Collared Shirts : 20,000
    Jewelry Boxes : 5,000
    Leather Belt : 15,000
    Beach Bag Woven : 28,000
    Beach Towels : 25,000 - 50,000
    Placemats : 5,000
    Leather Jackets : 500,000 - 700,000
    Levi's 501 : 75,000
    Sneakers : 40,000 - 60,000
    Necklaces : 10,000
    Sandals : 25,000 - 40,000
    Sarongs : 10,000 - 15,000
    Sunglasses : 15,000 - 25,000
    T-shirts : 10,000 - 30,000
    Watches : 15,000 - 25,000

  • Softcomp Center: DVDs

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    DVD shops are everywhere in Kuta area. This is the cheapest DVD I came across, comparing prices of DVDs in Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Bali.

    The shop that I buy from, Softcomp Center, is located in Tuban area, between Discovery Kartika Plaza and Dynasty Hotel, opposite Bali GoKart. This is just one of the many branches of Softcomp in Kuta.

    What to buy: DVD movies, selling at 15 piece for just 100000rp. They sell TV series DVDs like Smallville, 24, Sopranos, etc too.

    What to pay: 15 for 100000rp

    Gianyar Market: A Shopaholi'cs Paradise

    by balisunshine Written Jun 16, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the way to Ubud,
    about 35 miles from the Kuta area,
    is a shopaholic’s paradise
    known as the Sukawaati Market.

    This is a great place to sharpen your negotiation skills,
    and perhaps to need to buy
    an extra suitcase to take back home
    all that you bought.
    Stalls have paintings, to umbrellas, wood carvings, sarongs,
    plenty of inexpensive gifts and
    probably stuff you may never look at after a month.

    I’m not into the ‘accumulating stuff’ thing,
    after all…..
    I am traveling the world and
    I would have to carry the stuff around.

    But the market is an unique experience to see.

    Junk or Treasures?

    This shop is centuries old in Bali. I am told they are the master craftsmen since centuries and used to supply jewelry to the Kings and Queens of Bali and Indonesian archipelago. They did not allow pictures inside but what I saw was just out of this world! They were very very expensive even in Indonesian Currency but if I had that kind of money, I would surely have bought something for the family. But since India and especially Kolkata is full of world famous craftsmen, we have more options to buy.

    But I recommend this shop for buying Balinese Jewelry or ornaments!!

    What to buy: Gold and Silver ornaments.

    What to pay: Depends on how much you can spend usually abut USD$100 to start with.

    Fruit Stand: Shop for Fruit

    by kyoub Written Jun 27, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Stop at a fruit stand and get some tropical fruits to go.
    Some are well know like bananas, pineapple, papaya, and limes.
    Others are mysterious, such as the salak fruit hiding within a snake - like covering.
    Or some with a powerful stench such as the notorious durien that is banned from most hotels.
    Some are surprisingly large such as the jackfruit and guavas. Pomelo, is an excellent large citrus fruit.
    Three popular seasonal fruits are the golf ball sized rambutans,langsat, and the mangosteens

    With the Indonesian being so tiny in size
    buying cloths for the enhanced body
    can be a complicated thing.

    In Legian,
    ‘Big Is Good’ clothing store
    is available with sizes up to 6XL
    for both men and women.

    T-shirts, shirts, polo tops, shorts and pants
    are a part of their selection.

    Surfer Girl: all your surfing needs

    by DidiBeachBum Written Feb 16, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    in Kuta, you shouldnt buy anything other than surf stuffs. Coz they cost more than twcice as much as in traditional markets. and if you're a foreigner, they'll charge you hundred times more than the locals. Best place to shop for cheap is in Pasar Sukowati (Sukowati Market). For example a pair of beaded sandals in Kuta is around Rp. 30,000, while in Pasar Sukowati only Rp. 15.000. Remember those are prices for locals. I think you should bring a local whenever you shop

    What to buy: Balinese handicrafts, silverstuffs, paintings are very unique. Im always flat broke everytime i go to bali ^___^

    Sakura DVD store: DVD's,CD's,MP3's. computer software...

    by Schnecki Written Sep 12, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We all know it's untinkable to return home from Bali without at least 20 DVD's and sakura dvd store in my opinion is the best place to buy them.They have at least six tv's and dvd players mounted on the wall where you can check them your self.If there is something you want and they don't have it in the store they will get it fot you the next day, you can even have it delivered to your hotel room.Verry friendly and helpfull staff.We also bought some of the music cd's they played in the store.

    What to pay: 15 000 Rp for dvd but you get some free ones when you buy more.As far as I can remember you get 3 free ones for every ten you purchase(please forgive me if this is not 100% correct but I think it is at least very close)

    Jeny's shop no 29: Sindhu Beach markets,Sanur

    by austarman Updated May 8, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Jeny's and the next door Tootsies shops at the Sanur Sindhu beach market are different to most shops in Bali because they are fixed price shops, unlike most shops of this type in Bali.
    The staff there are very good because they leave you to look around, but they are there to help you if you need it.
    They have a huge range of cloths in all the sizes.
    Both shops have a large range of clothing, gifts, casual shoes, and souvenirs.

    What to buy: Cloths spring to mind straight away because they are so very very cheap there.
    I remember I asked one girl how much for something one day and she said with a smile "No problem sir this Cheap cheap like a bird" and she was right too. :-)
    There are many Balinese style gifts here and for the ladies, all the bags ,shoes, sarongs and of coarse plenty of cloths.
    Plus you can get all your genuine copy's in big name brands at bargain prices.

    What to pay: At Tootsies and Jeny's the prices are very reasonable so wont need too much.
    I think I may have spent about $30 or $40 Australian for 2 big bags of cloths?
