"If you like beach wear, then..." Indonesia Favorite Tip by dr_in_asia

Indonesia General: 281 reviews and 250 photos


Favorite thing: If you like beach wear, then this is the place to shop. In Kuta and up to the next town, there are tons of surfer shops. However, we found that there is an even better place to start before you go to these, which is the Factory Outlet for Beachwear (or something like that) which is on the main road between the airport and Kuta. Deals like tops $2 USD, shorts and pants $4-10....

Also, if local crafts/carvings, fabrics, and paintings are your thing...go to Ubud. You'll have to bargain quite hard in some of the stalls and stores, though. However it was worth the effort.

Fondest memory: The lush green plant life everywhere and the fact that no building was higher than a coconut tree (a local legislation - no kidding!) and the sunsets. In the center of HK, where I work and live both of these things are a rare sight, so I fully enjoyed this when I was in Bali.
