Here are Team Ministry’s picks for the best shopping in Senggigi. Get ready to make some real finds at a great value.
1. Pasar Seni – Senggigi Market
Pasar Seni is one of the most frequented shopping hubs in Senggigi. Catering to locals and tourists alike, this open-air market sells literally everything: handicrafts and art pieces from all around Lombok, traditional souvenirs, T-shirts, sarongs, clothing… and the list goes on. The market is also a great spot for some people watching while shopping in Senggigi.
2. Asmara Collection
Asmara Collection is located close to its namesake restaurant and features an amazing collection of tribal arts sourced from across the archipelago. Hand woven textiles, intricate wooden carvings and one-of-a-kind art pieces will make a fantastic gift to take home with you.
3. Bayan Lombok Handicraft and Tropical Gift
Bayan Lombok is another traditional art market offering a wide selection of handicrafts, souvenirs and art pieces available for purchase. Try your hand at bargaining and you could pick up souvenirs for the whole family at a terrific price. Don’t forget to smile and remember that you have to purchase the item if the vendor agrees on the price you’ve suggested – walking away at this point is considered very rude.
