Shopping

Our rating:

Along Jalan Legian between Jalan Melasti and Jalan Werkadura are a long row of shops dedicated to selling a large array of women’s accessories.


No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

Many of the shops are dedicated to selling one type of accessory only, such as beads, whereas the shop next door might specialise in bracelets and bangles.

Other accessories on offer are earrings, necklaces, hair clips and rings. These shops can sell at massive discounts when dealing with bulk orders, but most casual tourists will be happy to pay 20,000 rupiah for a string of beads or a bangle.

Also along this stretch are a number of shops selling an array of homewares such as plates, bowls, lamps, placemats and even sinks at great prices. As is the case in Kuta, most of those shops will allow bargaining, especially on bulk purchases. Even if you’re not in the market for any of these goods, it’s often great to just browse and marvel at the enterprising nature of the storeowners.

On Jalan Sahadewa and around the corner on Jalan Melasti are a couple of markets selling much the same stuff as is found in Kuta such as cheap clothing, sunglasses, handcrafts, lighters and stickers. Some of the stuff is not the best quality and it is best to inspect the goods before purchase.
