The shopping scene in Kuta is wonderfully eclectic. The area's backpacker heritage is still apparent in the street shopping along Jalan Legian and in areas like Kuta Square and the Kuta Art Market, but as tourists have increased in affluence, so has...more

Same stuff being sold in all shops. Do bargain. Tourist trap unless you wanna get those beach pants or cheap shorts. Would skip it if under time constraint

Not really a Art Market. The inner lane is selling those imitation T-Shirts etc. I've you've been to Poppies, then the shops are identical. Be prepared to haggle as they are quoting you with unreasonably high price. They gets a little aggressive when you walk...More

I'm not sure if the Art Markets have become more cramped with stallholders or if the area has deteriorated but it doesn't seem to be the same friendly place as in former years. It is certainly more untidy with varied merchandise everywhere, the temple area...More

The Art Market is on J. Kartika Plaza down the road from the Kuta Market. There is a sign above and it appears as an open type of shop. A place to spend some time looking around, nothing really special here.

This market has stalls selling cheap souvenirs, T-shirts, bags and imitation products. Traditional Balinese art and craft are noticeably absent here now. Not worth a visit even if you are in the area.

If you want seedy men offering you fake drugs and prostitutes then this is the place for you. Likewise if you want poor quality, fake, overpriced sports and surf branded clothing then come on down. All of the merchandise here can be found elsewhere in...More

It’s not an art market. It’s a tourist trap with very pushy vendors selling fake branded singlets, tees, clothing, and so called “souvenirs” and the like. Stalls that sells the same things. Not worth the visit. Will not return nor recommend.

This place has changed a lot since my last visit to Bali 15 years ago. It was much better 15 years ago, with more batik(traditional hand-printed patterns on cloth) clothes stores along the streets, more authentic Balinese handicraft and hand-made souvenirs. Today, most of the...More

We visited kuta market with high expectations but were let down. Prices are steep sometimes as high as 3 times the price. One painting which kuta market will offer you at 300k IDR will be available in 100K IDR in Ubud or tanah lot. Also...More

Certainly worth a visit to get your bartering done. Not a great range - basically after the first 5 shops you see the same thing again and again. There are some different items we found towards the back of the market, sort of off the...More
