Where to shop in Bali
To be honest: there are numerous shops, stalls and markets in Bali. Many of which sell great stuff, often for very affordable prices. Especially if you know how to do some serious bargaining.
Not all of those shops and stalls offer as nice a shopping experience, ‘ambiance wise’. They may be very basic, cramped, limited in choice of products, hot (no airco or fans) and so on.
That doesn’t have to be a problem at all. Looking for bargains often comes with some minor suffering doesn’t it?;-)
The 10 cool shops in Bali that I selected for you are pretty suffering-free. The only thing that might hurt a bit is your wallet, since these are not the cheapest shops in Bali. That doesn’t mean they are crazy expensive either.
