Batubelig is a tiny village nestled between Bali heavy-hitters Seminyak and Canggu. The neighbourhood has gained popularity in its own right only in the past ten years or so. Batubelig is still reasonably green and pleasantly underdeveloped, offering more rice terrace vistas than concrete blocks constructions. You can easily spend a whole day shopping in Batubelig and find some one-of-a-kind gems to take back home with you. Here are our five favourite shops in Batubelig.
