Kuta Art Market in Bali
About Kuta Art Market
Kuta Art Market serves as a shopping oasis as it is located out of sight from the traffic and sidelined by the many modern shops in its adjacent boulevards. It’s perfect for visitors who do not have much time to hunt for souvenirs in the island’s other more established art markets, however prices can be higher.
Nearly all of the items sold here are similar to the goods that dominate the art markets of Ubud and Sukawati. The items are mostly sourced from the same cottage industries and suppliers in Gianyar, as well as local craftsmen in Kuta and the surrounding areas. Bargaining skills will play an important role on your shopping here.
When bargaining at the Kuta Art Market, rule of thumb is to act polite and friendly with shopkeepers as it is sort of a game, and you can actually make new friends from these 'soft battles’. Make sure you check the quantity and quality of each of your items before paying the negotiated price.
The art market is surrounded by various beachside food stalls selling cold drinks and restaurants selling cuisines at various price ranges. Most of the restaurants are located across the Jalan Kartika Plaza, along the Kuta sidewalk, southward from the art market. Always try to have small Rupiah change on hand.
There are several money changers around the Kuta Art Market, however using them can be a tricky, if not daunting, affair. Use only authorised money changers or a bank. You can also change your money at your hotel, although at normally higher rates. The small, unauthorised street booths, despite being labelled as ‘authorised’ should be last resort. If you must, always re-count your money twice in front of the dealer and ask for any missing banknotes.

Other landmarks near Kuta Art Market
Kuta Beach - Landmarks
This beach has seen sea changes aplenty. In the 1970s, its gnarly breaks and remote setting made it a favourite with surfers and nudists. With the rising tide of tourism, it became a front-line Kuta landmark. These days you’ll see roving masseuses, hair braiders and vendors of knick-knacks. Head down early for some peace and quiet, or kick back with a cool beer at sunset. Address : Jalan Pantai Kuta, Kuta, Bali 80361
Waterbom Bali - Attractions
This water park is the coolest place to cool off. It’s a technicolour tangle of slides that combines water and gravity for maximum exhilaration. Dash to the bottom on Twin Racers and snake through the treetops on Green Vipers. Adrenaline junkies should take on Climax, where an agonising wait in a chamber is followed by a 16-metre fall through a trap door and an epic splash! Address : Jalan Kartika Plaza, PO BOX 1055, Tuban,Kuta - Bali 80361. Open Monday-Sunday 09:00-18:00. Check website for details.

Rock on! This music-themed restaurant hits all the right notes. The Hard Rock’s walls are covered with posters of long-maned music greats, and the strains of rock ‘n’ roll classics get diners’ feet a-tappin’.
