Bali Shopping Price Guide 2019
Correct at time of publication. Please check with venue for updates. We apologise in advance if there have been any changes we are unaware of. All prices in local currency, unless otherwise stated.
This Bali Shopping Price Guide 2019 will give you an idea of the going-rate for purchases made in a Bali market – NOT in a Balinese shopping mall such as Centro, Discovery Mall or Beachwalk, or any of the fixed-price boutiques.
If in doubt when wanting to know shopping prices in Bali, and we don’t list what you are looking for, use our tried-and-true tactic for gauging the going price of a Bali market product you are coveting. This tip will save you money, and tears.
Last trip, I paid 100,000 for a pair of fake leather slip-on flats to wear to Waterbom Waterpark in Bali.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I PAY FOR THINGS IN BALI?
That was the worst purchase ever.
Crap shoes and super uncomfortable on my size 8 feet, plus I paid way too much. Ended up giving the brand new shoes to our local op shop when I got home, hoping someone else might have better luck.
With this Bali price guide, I could have saved myself the misery of wasted money.
Our Bali Shopping Price Guide for 2019 is a comprehensive list of Bali prices you should be paying.
It’s not perfect, but a rough outline to give you the groundwork for bartering and making sure you don’t get ripped off.
Check out all the categories below.
If you don’t find what you are looking for, leave a comment and I’ll get back to you with more info.

(If you head there, and spot the leather purses above, I’d love an update on current prices. Please email me at email@example.com with your hot tips!)

Try the Dianne Shop in Kuta or Garlic Lane.

We also buy shoes in Bali from branded stores at the big shopping malls like Mall Bali Galleria, and Seminyak Square from these shops:
- Hush Puppies
- Timberland and
- Wakai shoes (the most comfy shoes we’ve ever bought)
Local boutiques such as Mimpi Mannis are a good bet too.
If you buy shoes on sale as we love to do, and your purchase is a bargain, the cost-per-wear can’t be beaten.
Especially as you’ll actually wear them, instead of donating them to the local op shop a week after you return, like I did.

Top tips for Bali shopping:
Most bluetooth speakers and headphones in markets are fake. Try before you buy to make sure they work with your phone.
Don’t expect genuine quality, or for them to last forever, but they are good enough for your trip.

Bali Car Stickers, Business Cards & Bumper Stickers for Local Business
Buy a Bintang or a “I Love Bali” sticker from the local markets for around 10,000 to 30,000 RP.
Please don’t be one of those Aussie beer-fuelled bogans who buys the dumb/rude/obscene/obnoxious car stickers from the markets. They are not cool. Lift your game.
You can also have business cards and bumper stickers made with your logo, starting from as cheap as 15 cents AUD each, right up to 35 cm squares for around 15,000 RP.
Most of the time, you buy these stickers in a meterage. Prices start around 400,000.
Try these local graphic design or print shops:
- House of Ink
- Bali Stubby Centre
- Supa Print on Jalan Sunset (supa-print.com)
- Deka Grafika
- Ezy Shop on Poppies 2
- J Copy on Jalan Uluwatu
- Oz Print Shop Canggu

- I’m not going to name a price for those horrendous penis souvenirs because no-one in their right mind should ever contemplate buying those. (**Someone** obviously does, but I’ve never met anyone who’ll admit to it!)
