Where to Shop and What to Buy in Denpasar

Where to Shop and What to Buy in Denpasar
As modern and traditional approaches blend here, you can either bargain prices down on lower-priced goods or pay the full price for higher-quality fixed-price goods.
In traditional markets, you will find unique handicrafts, woodcarvings, local spices, and much more. Shops selling similar items are often clustered together which makes negotiating and comparing prices easier.

In plazas, fixed prices are more common though you may be able to bargain in some. Every mall in the city consists of a department store stocking both local and brand labeled merchandises, a supermarket, and a few small outlets offering various kinds of products.


Animale is an everyday women’s wear label with creative, unique and elegant designs. From fine linens to imported silk, from batik to jungle prints, from scarves to shoes, its wide-ranging choice of products and sizes aims at client satisfaction.
Location: Jalan Imam Bonjol 448

Duta Silk

For many years, Duta Silk has been famous for its range of fine-quality silk, linen, cotton and much more. The store looks small next to the big Matahari Department Store, yet it provides what’s not available at its neighbour; calibres of fabric are here, as well beautiful laces and buttons. What you bring home from this place will definitely be worth the price you pay.
Location: Komplek Duta Permai, Block 1, Jalan Dewi Sartika

Jalan Sulawesi Textile Shops

Jalan Sulawesi is a small, yet commercial street in the city and it is well known for its fabric shops. Here, you will find rich choices of textiles: cotton, silk, Chinese satins, brocades and much more. Clothing is also a popular option here, particularly if you want to try the Balinese traditional dress. The shops may seem to offer the same products but each shop is different and it’s not a bad idea to scour from one to another and compare what’s on offer. Don’t forget to bargain prices down along this row.
Location: Behind Pasar Badung & Kumbasari

Krisna Bali

Since 2007 Krisna Bali has been an excellent one-stop souvenir shopping destination. Everything here is at a fixed price yet incredibly cheap. Krisna sells an immense amount of items, from earrings made of coconut shell earrings to rattan handbags, T-shirts and food – all to remind you of Bali.
Location: Jalan Nusa Indah 79 and Jalan Nusa Kambangan 160A

Pasar Badung & Pasar Kumbasari

Less than 20 minutes from Kuta stands the biggest traditional market (pasar) in Denpasar with goods a lot cheaper than most markets. Bargaining is accepted here and should be kept light hearted as most merchants here don’t go for the hard sell that prevails at other traditional markets. Pasar Badung and Pasar Kumbasari are two four-story buildings, separated by the Tukad Badung River. They are both open for 24 hours, although what is available depends on the time of the day. During normal hours, you can find produce on the ground floor along with ceremonial goods. The upper floors of each building sell craftware and typical Balinese souvenirs ranging from sarongs to carved wooden statues, along with household and textile items. At night, food vendors set up their stalls.
Location: Jalan Gajah Mada

Pasar Burung (Bird Market)

The name says it all: Hundreds of birds, poultry products, and a menagerie of other animals such as guinea pigs, rabbits and exotic creatures and tropical fish are displayed here. Buyers would be forgiven for sometimes wondering how the more exotic ones were taken from the dark jungles of Indonesia and ended up here. Opposite the bird market is a section for dogs. This noisy market can be found in two different locations, although one stands on its own while the other shares location with Sanglah market.
Location: Jalan Veteran, about 500m north of Catur Muka statue and 200 metres east of Sanglah Hospital

Pasar Kembang

In Denpasar, the short, yet busy section of several kiosks selling fresh flowers on the side of the road right before Tiara Dewata is very popular and goes by the name ‘pasar kembang’ (flower market). The large selection of many different types of flowers is handy for bouquets to chaplets, weddings or any memorable occasion. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, it’s possible to order special arrangements. One piece of advice; there are no parking facilities to the market.
Location: Jalan Mayjen Sutoyo

Pasar Kreneng

The city’s second biggest traditional market is named after its area, Kreneng. Up to 1,100 vendors sell all sorts of merchandise throughout this three-storey building. Although the condition and environment here is rather far from being clean and organised, it’s still a favourite place for locals to buy their daily needs at cheap prices. Money changers wander about shouting “Piswek-piswek”, offering crisp new 500 Rupiah notes for old and beaten up 1,000 Rupiah bills and other combinations of exchange. Upon entering, you will find two giant statues symbolically guarding the place and everyone in it. After 15:00, the popular night market takes over.
Location: Jalan Kamboja, East Denpasar

Pasar Sanglah

Another traditional market that sells commodities for daily needs is located right next to the Sanglah Hospital. It is easily accessible by both private and public transport and only 2.5km away from downtown Denpasar. It is open from 06:00 until early evening.

Ramayana Mal Bali

The first mall to open in Denpasar, Ramayana (Mal Bali) is definitely worth a visit. Located a distance from the main tourist area, it is full of local colour.
