Ubud market

Shop till you drop

What we say: 3.5 stars

Ubud's central market featured in the Julia Roberts film Eat, Pray, Love and looked to be awash with tourist trinkets and souvenirs, but there's an entire other section of it that many miss.

There's a basement level to the market that has all the grime you'll need for your authentic Ubudian experience (though to be honest many Ubudians probably shop at the Bintang Supermarket over on Jalan Raya Campuhan, but lets not worry about that little detail).

The basement level is actually pretty interesting, with lots of fresh produce and dead animals, though by God do the walls need a coat of paint. The basement level isn't difficult to find: wander near the main market for a bit and you'll invariably come across some older women carrying either stuff on their head or innumerable tiny plastic bags. Follow them and when you spy the staircase heading down into the bowels of the market, you're on your way.
