Visit The Ubud Bali Art Market
is referred to by locals as ‘Pasar Seni Ubud‘ is a must visit when you’re in Bali, it is a quirky tourist/arty/handicraft market with extravagant colours, spices and mazes of stalls. You will find all sorts of gifts/household items/general items on the cool stalls, there is always going to be the items no one will ever buy but then there are the absolute diamonds in the dirt of a find.
Location of Ubud Art Market
Ubud Bali Market is on the main busy road of Raya Ubud, but is not the easiest to see from the outside. It is best to start on the corner building as shown in the google map, then work your way through the fun maze of stalls. The Ubud Bali market is also in a prime location to visit other local shops, restaurants and cafes.

- Stuff for the house – There is everything for the house such as lamp shades, quirky room lifters, bright coloured curtains and random gifts.

What you need to know about the Ubud Bali Art Market
- You need to barter, my favourite word. The stall owners will always start the price higher s they DO expect you to haggle on the price. I always push for at least 40% lower than the asking price, anything less I will walk away. Then, they usually shout you back.
- It gets very crowded so make your way there early as possible.
- If you don’t like being hassled then I would give this one a miss as the stall owners will keep on at you to buy something.
I love markets, I think they’re epic for searching through local goods and learning, do you love them?
