Discover a Bali from another point of view between daily transactions in the market areas in this 1 day tour called Bali Denpasar Traditional Markets. Probably during this tour you will come across very few tourists or none since we will visit the most local markets of the capital of Bali.
At the agreed time, we will pick you up at your hotel and then start this Traditional Markets tour. This excursion will be calmer than others. We will go to the Bird Market in the City of Denpasar, the Satria Market. It is a traditional local market not intended for tourists where you will see not only birds, but many species of animals.
From this bird market, we will go to the Badung Traditional Market, it is the center of the city’s economy. This traditional market is relevant to the village temple which is one of the three largest temples in Denpasar. A four-story building that houses the largest traditional market in Bali. On the Badung River, there is the Kumbasari Market, it is the market that complements the daily transactions, where you can find and see various elements of the Balinese ceremony.
We continue our journey to reach the Historical Center of the Island, where we will visit the great Catur Mukha, the statue with four faces and eight arms on the main artery of Denpasar that represents a manifestation of Shiva as lord of the four cardinal points.
We end this special route with a visit to the Fish Market on the famous Jimbaran beach. This market has to be visited early in the morning because at that time there are more transaction activities. Several fishermen catch fish from some areas such as Singaraja, Banyuwangi, Sulawesi, and there are times from the Lesser Sunda Islands where they gather here to sell their catch in the morning or in the afternoon depending on the season and the wind of the rising moon.
We can observe the bustle and activity of the fishermen, the boats with a variety of colors of the luminous paint, the fresh sea air, the activity of buying and selling from fishing boats with the vendors. After “doing the transactions” with the fishermen, we will enjoy the beauty of the sea when it is painted orange on the sky of the Jimbaran beach, in the magnificent sunset. After the tour, we return to the hotel.
Our favourite time for travel in Bali is between April to October, although Bali is a great year-round destination, offering memorable experiences for all kinds of adventures. July to August are the peak summer months. In West to Central part of the weather is delightfully warm and it’s a popular time for travellers to visit for holidays, whilst if you wish to travel from October to April, the Eastern part Indonesia, like Banda and Raja Ampat, would be the best option.
If you wish to have a relaxing journey in Bali with less crowds, the shoulder months of April to June and September to October are ideal and slightly more economic. If you must travel in ‘high season’ but want to avoid the crowd, worry not, there are numbered of unbeaten track in Indonesia ready to be explored.
