Sanur

Where to shop in Sanur?

Sanur is flooded with great stores for shopping. The area has grown in popularity in line with the development of 5 star hotels and this has had an amazing affect on the shopping precinct. Spending hours roaming the streets shopping is a common pastime for those tourists based in Sanur.

Sanur is jam packed full of art and craft shops, home wares shops, fashion boutiques, surfing stores and the usual Balinese vendors selling souvenirs that are so common among the tourist hot spots. The main shopping area in Sanur is evenly split between three main roads; Jalan Tamblingan, Jalan Mertasari, and the Ngurah Rai bypass road. Here you will find all your shopping requirements that go into making a great Balinese holiday experience.

Shopping and strolling the main streets of Sanur is a a more relaxed and chilled out exercise than in other more hectic areas such as Kuta or Legian. In fact it’s relatively peaceful by Balinese standards. This is in keeping with the vibe of the whole Sanur enclave. People come here for this reason and they like it to remain that way.

Your Sanur hotel or resort is also a ideal place to start shopping. Most of the bigger hotels will have their own shops or boutiques and quite often they are very good. Get some stunning wall hanging art or local hand crafted pieces before stepping out of your hotel confines. You may also like to check out the local Balinese vendors who are in front of your hotel on the beachfront, selling all types of t shirts, kites, wood carvings and the must have Bintang stubby holder.

Jalan Tamblingan Street and the really long Mertasari Street are a mecca and huge draw card for the local tourist trade as they walk up and down these streets gazing at all the fabulous art shops, boutiques, retailers, restaurants, bars and cafés. Best way to do this is on foot, so get prepared, put on some comfy shoes and enjoy your Sanur shopping adventure.
