Best Time To Visit

The Taman Sari Night Market is open daily from 5 am to midnight, offering plenty of time for exploration.

If you’re an early bird, visiting during the morning hours can be a great way to beat the crowds and have first dibs on the freshest produce and handmade goods. 

However, if you prefer a more bustling atmosphere, the market tends to be at its busiest during the late evening hours.

And take note, many only accept cash. So be sure to withdraw some Indonesian Rupiah before heading out to the market so you don’t miss out on any must-haves.

Exploring Taman Sari Market

As a backpacker on a budget, I was thrilled to discover Taman Sari Night Market during my stay in Seminyak. 

It was a refreshing change from the area’s high-end boutiques and fancy restaurants. I couldn’t believe the variety of fresh tropical fruits at such low prices. 

I spent a dollar on a full bag of juicy mangoes and mangosteens, and they were the perfect snack to take back to my place.

Getting to the market was easy enough. I took a 15-minute transfer from Seminyak’s main Petitenget hub.

Getting to Taman Sari Night Market

The market is located near the southwestern corner of the Petitenget and Kerobokan junction. It has a street-side facade lined with colourful fruit displays, making it impossible to miss. 

I enjoyed bargaining with the vendors, especially at the front-row fruit stalls selling by the kilogram. I was able to score some great deals by negotiating hard. 

Inside the main building, I found stalls selling daily local necessities, and it was an excellent opportunity to pick up some souvenirs for my friends back home.

As the sun set, the market took on a vibrant local night market scene. I had to try the delicious meatball soup called bakso and the grilled chicken satay, which were incredibly cheap and tasty. 

My time at Taman Sari Night Market was freaking awesome. It was such a rad experience that I’d recommend it to anyone who wants to shop and eat local in Seminyak without going bankrupt.
