Being a fashion girl it was only a matter of time before I had to post about shopping! Ubud is the place to come in Bali if you’re after something. You can get pretty much anything and there’s some very odd-looking things around too (they seem to like anything penis shaped…). There’s a whole mix of cute boutique and the massive market where everyone is pretty much selling the same things. Some of the fashion leaves a little to be desired although there’s some nice tops for a few quid that you would easily see in Topshop for £35. The homeware and decorations are what mainly excite me and I could definitely decorate my whole flat with things I’ve seen in the last few days! Ubud is famous for its art and batik so there are lots of amazing pictures and fabrics to be seen around too. You are spoilt for choice.
We’re not exactly in the best position to buy anything right now as we only have our backpacks and don’t know when we will next be home. So apart from a £3 sarong (and Steph’s one coaster) we just participated in some good old window shopping! Hopefully I’ll get to come back one day with an empty suitcase waiting to be filled with goodies.
