Badung Market

Pasar Badung: Bali traditional market place

Denpasar’s Chinese style shop-houses and small selection of departments store are not as interesting as the traditional markets in the city. In Denpasar, the epicenter of shopping is the riverside Badung Market. It’s a sweaty, multi-storey concrete complex of stores and stalls selling everything from fresh fish, fruit and vegetables to Balinese and Javanese crafts and textiles.

Badung Market is the largest market in Bali and acts as a sort of clearing house for many island goods. Sarong vendors in Padangbai may buy their wares at Badung Market. Fruit and vegetable producers from around Bali may bring their goods to market at Badung Market, so the market is humming with activity 24/7.

It is located in a massive four storey building on the banks of the Badung river in the center of downtown, close to Jl. Gajah Mada. Organized chaos reigns outside, with cars and motorbikes trying to find a place to park, people carrying bushels of produce of every kind imaginable. Come in the morning and check out the food vendors.

Around the ground floor areas of Badung Market, especially outside the stairwells, one can observe older Balinese ladies preparing and selling traditional Balinese snack foods, complete with ground chili’s, vegetables and and array of other items. You may not know exactly what you’re eating but it could be a wonderful experience and one that will not break the bank.

Inside the first floor is reserved for meat, fish, fruit and veg. The upper floors for spices and traditional Balinese and Muslim attire, Denpasar has a decent sized Muslim population, and they sell in the market too, along with Chinese traders. Also sold are Balinese ceremonial equipment such as sarongs, umbrellas and baskets. You might see the odd westerner here, but by no means is this a tourist destination.

Badung Market has plenty of parking area, however the entrance at Jl. Sulawesi may seem a little hectic. Parking is also found along the streets leading away from the market. Some people have reported that local women offer their services as ‘guides’ but this does not seem to be the rule. You do not need a guide to explore Badung market and wandering around by yourself is truly an education in Balinese culture and commerce.

To get to Badung Market from Kuta, drive on Jl. Imam Bonjol towards Denpasar. You keep going straight until you are forced to make a left or right turn at Jl. Gajah Mada. Turn right and its just around the corner. You know its the market when you see the huge building with all the activity around it. The best time to visit the market is one fine day when it’s not raining, between 8am-12 noon. From Kuta it may takes about 15-20 minutes to get there, depending on traffic. On the opposite bank of the river, the Kumbasari Complex houses many small traders peddling cheap batik clothing, jewelery, silverware and dubious ‘antiques’.

Langkawi Beaches

Langkawi, despite a less popular beach holiday destination compared to Phuket, Krabi, Koh Samui and Bali, it is a pure escape out of city’s hubbub given that Langkawi is free of traffic jams, congestion, but only rows and rows of greens and nature beauty. So if you decide on a beach getaway with lots of nightlife, go to Phuket or even Samui.

Langkawi is far more on clean and pure relaxation. 2014-02-02 15.50.58

Its beaches are clean with soft white sand, but true bliss really shines are the cherished absence of continual beach hawkers who’ll bother and trouble your moment of zen with merchandise, including bracelets, fake tattoos, beach hats, beer, hair-braiding services and massages.

2014-02-02 17.24.41 You will get to enjoy tranquility while watching the ever-changing sunsets over the Andaman sea. 2014-02-02 15.39.17 2014-02-02 19.22.39 2014-02-02 19.22.30

Pantai Tengah and the adjoining Pantai Cenang are the two key beaches on Langkawi. They are relatively touristy, even though the beach at Pantai Tengah is more tranquil. Pantai Tengah fits everything we desire well, with plenty of shops and restaurants near the hotel; while Pantai Cenang has an array of bars and eateries around the beach, a pleasant way to spend an lovely evening. You will enjoy sunset drinks, watching water sport and take few sunset photos!

2014-02-02 17.25.18 Pantai Cenang (Cenang Beach) is famous for its sunset, long white-sandy beach, clear blue waters, restaurants and bars, high-end resorts, inexpensive hotels as well as the many fun water activities that make it the liveliest of all Langkawi beaches. As the island’s most developed beach, there are nearby islands, such as Purau Rebak Kecil and Purau Rebak Besar, where tourists can go off island-hopping. 2014-02-02 15.51.13 2014-02-02 15.51.12

Besides, there are two popular tourist attractions nearby, the Laman Padi Rice Garden and Underwater World. Pantai Cenang is 25 km west of Kuah, the island’s capital and center of commerce.

Beautiful Langkawi

Pantai Tengah (Tengah Beach) is popular for its clear blue water, a great choice for sisightseeing and photo-shooting, but not really for swimming due to crowded jellyfish. The beachfront is packed with cheap and high-end resorts, hotels and restaurants, the most famous of which is the open-air Lighthouse Restaurant and Beach Bar. Tengah is just 500 meters from Cenang Beach.
