Pasar Ubud is traditional market that plays an essential role in the development and promotion of arts and culture in Ubud. It's the perfect place to buy gifts for your love ones and maybe you buy yourself some Balinese paintings!

Pasar Ubud is right across from Puri Ubud, and located at the intersection of the main roads: Jalan Raya Ubud, Jalan Suweta and Jalan Raya Monkey Forest. This intersection is the drop-off point for vehicles that bring tourists to Ubud. The current building is the result of renovations completed on 6 October 1994 and inaugurated by the Governor Bali at that time, Prof. Dr. Ida Bagus Oka.

This traditional market complex is two-story building with a basement area. The basement area is traditional market where vegetables and other daily needs are sold.

The ground floor and second floor are occupied mostly by traders selling souvenirs for tourists.

In Pasar Ubud, you can buy products such as traditional Balinese clothing, T-shirts, Balinese Batik, sarongs and others.

Paintings as I mentioned before are also for sale here. Some painting shops provide certificates of authenticity from the painters.

Because the market is one of the main tourist’s destination in Ubud, it’s always crowded. The shops are full of fascinating creative products, so when I get there even though I have visited countless traditional markets in Indonesia, I don’t get bored because the products are so colorful!
