Sukawati Art Market

Kumbasari Art Market

Kuta Art Market

Sukawati Art Market, referred to locally as ‘Pasar Seni Sukawati’, is Bali’s most distinguished and long-standing art market. It is where visitors can seek and purchase distinctively Balinese art items such as paintings and sculpted wooden figures, curios, handicrafts and traditional handmade products. The two-storey Sukawati Art Market was established in the 80s and is located on the Jalan Raya Sukawati main road in Gianyar, approximately 20km northeast from the main tourism hubs of Kuta and Denpasar. The art market’s main building is often packed with shopping holidaymakers and locals sourcing household and daily necessities. It is an alternative, inexpensive and complete shopping destination conveniently situated along most tour itineraries to the central and northern regions of the island.

Kumbasari Art Market

The Kumbasari Art Market is one of Denpasar’s main icons, located right across the Badung River, opposite the Badung Market. The market is a primary source of arts and handicrafts, products chiefly coming from the island’s various art producing communities, the likes of Ubud and the central Bali highlands, while also featuring galleries of onsite painters and craftsmen. Locally referred to as ‘Pasar Kumbasari’, the Kumbasari Art Market in central Denpasar is easy to reach, within only a half hour’s transfer, from the main resort areas on Bali’s south such as Kuta and Sanur. The market’s setting might seem downtrodden, much of what you would find at any traditional market in Bali, however the diverse selection of items available will easily appeal to avid shoppers, especially with its bargain and wholesale prices.

Kuta Art Market

Kuta Art Market is a small beachside bazaar-like complex where Bali souvenirs, arts and handicraft items are sold. The compact marketplace is easily located at the end of the Jalan Bakungsari one-way thoroughfare, adjacent to the Kuta Sidewalk and just before Jalan Kartika Plaza Street. Here, visitors who stroll along the street as well as from the sands of Kuta Beach will come across the market.
