Wildly colourful clothing, the latest surfing styles, but also jewellery and other objects of Balinese design. From chic boutiques to the crowded stalls of the market, the lively streets of Seminyak will surprise you with articles you’re going to want to carry home in your suitcase. Depending on your mood and what you’re looking for, this interesting vacation spot on the south of the island offers various alternatives for your shopping pleasure. The two main shopping centres are Seminyak Square and Seminyak Village, but you’ll probably find better deals in the smaller shops along the busy streets of the neighbourhood. Compared with the nearby Seminyak Square, smaller in size - but where you can most likely find the perfect souvenir of your trip - Seminyak Village offers a wider variety, with its designer clothing, leather bags and colourful and fun swimwear. If you’re looking for a real deal, check out the flea-market of Seminyak, near Piazza Seminyak, overflowing with clothing, jewellery, sculpture and handicrafts. If you’re really looking for chic, take note of the addresses of Biasa, Magali Pascal and Bamboo Blonde.
Located within a large forest of nutmeg trees, Pura Bukit Sari was built in the 17th century as a meditation temple by the son of the King of Mengwi.
