Bali Tourism: Best of Bali
Bali packs a lot into one small island— from breathtaking waterfalls like Sekumpul in the north to the white sand beaches of Nyang Nyang in the south. Whatever you’re seeking, you’ll probably find: surf-able waves in Batu Bolong, all-night clubs in Seminyak, luxury clifftop hotels in Nusa Dua, and spiritual refuges all around. Snap a pic at the Gateway to Heaven, cut through the jungle to the hidden Gunung Kawi Temple, and catch the sunset and a traditional fire dance at Uluwatu Temple. Just don’t miss the markets—hunt for handcrafted artwork and textiles at the Sukawati Art Market, or snack on street food staples like satay and bakso at the Sindhu Night Market. For even more tastes and things to do, check out our recs below.

My favourite street markets in Bali
The street markets of Bali are a treat for the senses. Colourful silks, sparkling artisanal jewellery…even the sizzling street food is pure eye candy. I’ve checked out almost all of the markets on the island and these are my top five recs that are so worth braving the crowds to visit. Be sure to bring your appetite, and an extra bag for your loot.

- Gianyar Street Night Market156Known as “Pasar Senggol Gianyar” to locals, the Gianyar Street Night Market is famous for its street food. (I took a guided tour here with Tripbylocals and thought it was well worth the price.) Among the Indonesian delicacies to sample here are satay, suckling pig, serombotan (Balinese salad), lempog (cassava cake), and kue ongol ongol (Indonesian mochi). My favourite though is the klepon, a coconut-covered rice cake.
- La Brisa1,214La Brisa beach club hosts a market every Sunday and it’s a must-visit for anyone who prefers a more relaxed, curated experience. You can shop for organic produce, baked goods, and natural beauty products, all surrounded by lush greenery and fisherman boats. Don’t miss Bokashi Bali, a farm-to-table grocery store selling homemade honey, essential oils, and more.
- Frog Market11Pasar Kodok (a.k.a. Frog Market) is Bali’s best-kept secret for thrifters. Explore the block and a half of stalls and you’ll discover both vintage and contemporary second-hand clothing from all over Central Asia. While you won’t need to fight off other tourists, you will need to sift through racks and racks of clothing, so bring your patience, a bottle of water (it can get hot in the shops), and a sharp eye.
- Ubud Traditional Art Market1,814My obsession with Bali started when I first saw Eat, Pray, Love. If you’re also a fan of the film, don’t miss the Ubud Art Market—it’s where the market scene was filmed. Also known as Pasar Seni Ubud, this spot has a great selection of handmade souvenirs (oil paintings, silk scarves, kites) as well as excellent produce and spices toward the east end of the market.
- Sukawati Art Market413Expect to find a bit of everything here from wooden house decor and colourful sarongs to rattan bags. Pasar Seni Sukawati is also one of the more affordable markets in Bali (especially if you buy in bulk) and is entirely indoors, which is nice on rainy or super hot days.
