Ubud Guide: Shopping

Ubud’s art market may be infamous, but we prefer a more low key strategy when picking up souvenirs and keepsakes. If you dig a little deeper, you’ll find Ubud has several shops specialising in local wares which are fair trade and without a hint of kitsch. There are also a plethora of jewellery shops around town with a range of styles to suit every taste. We have tried to keep our Ubud shopping guide to stores elusively in Ubud, but some also do have locations in the south.
