Around Kuta Square and Beyond


Kuta square is a popular area in Kuta for shopping or just for hanging around and taking a stroll for windows shopping. It is about fourteen kilometres from Denpasar the capital city or five kilometres from the Ngurah Rai Airport (the only airport in Bali.)

Many shops selling branded names of varieties of products ranging from clothes, shoes, bags or jewelry. There is a popular shopping centre around Kuta square called Matahari where you can buy all your daily needs and souvenirs. There is also a Timezone to relax.

Next to Kuta square there is the traditional market which consists of hundreds of shops selling varieties of products. Mostly they sell T-shirts, pants, sarongs, mats, baby clothes, paintings, cushions, all tagged with Bali. This place you can bargain. (Many Balinese sellers now complained about how clever the tourist nowadays in bargaining. I think because those tourists have read my blog :-))

Next to the Kuta market is a DVD stores where you can try before buy.

And finally next to it is the biggest hyper market in Bali called Centro. Very western, with Kentucky Fried Chicken, A&W, Mark and Spencer, Starbucks and many shops where you can purchase about anything from clothes, home appliances, consumer electronics, you name it.
