Q: I will be going to Bali next month and I heard that one of the most unique and localized shopping is in Seminyak. I would like to find places with lots of local products and to understand the people and their Balinese arts and creativity. Can you suggest some shopping places as such in Seminyak?
A: You did hear right as one of the must do in Seminyak is shopping. It has the right atmosphere with all the hustle and bustle of people but it may take more effort and tolerance to shop that place. Here you can find hidden gems, local products, homewares, Balinese home decorations and other random items. Here are few shopping places you can check out in Seminyak:
Jalan Kerobokan – for Indonesian antiques, homewares, furnitures and such
Jalan Raya Seminyak – you may find many shops here selling everything in fashion from clothing to accessories such as streetwear, silver, handbags and sports
Jalan Laksamana – here is another street dotted with shops with a good mix of fashion and arts such as clothes, accessories, yoga wear, art galleries and ceramics
