Top 10 Places for Shopping in Bali
Like all of Bali, shopping on the Island of the Gods is almost an art. The individual approach to the decor of each store, the original and unique design of clothes, and attractive prices make Bali a shopping mecca. The best boutiques, outlets and local shops are located between the Seminyak and Petitenget area, which is where many of the most sought-after restaurants are as well.
1. Biasa Bali
Biasa Bali is a high-end Bali-based designer label. The store is separated into two levels “for her”, and “for him”. Each section offers chic designer clothes with matching accessories. The top quality cotton, silk and linen used in collections turn into fresh and elegant clothing, which ideally meets the customer demands in a tropical climate.
The vibrant, unique and fun spirit of Bali is reflected on the shelves of Puravida stores. The soft cotton and other natural fabrics along with the original design are two main reasons why you should visit one of Puravida shops.
3. Drifter Surf Shop
There are two fantastic Drifter Surf Shops in Bali, which are worth a visit even if you are not going to purchase!
