Bargaining

Bargaining can be an enjoyable part of shopping in Bali. Try following these steps:

  • Have some idea of the item's worth.
  • Establish a starting price – ask the seller for their price.
  • Your first offer can be from one-third to two-thirds of that price.
  • If you don't like the price, walk – the vendor may go lower.
  • When you name a price, you're committed – you must buy if your offer is accepted.

Money

Services are limited in the Gunung Batur area, but there are a few ATMs along Jl Raya Penelokan.
