Heading to Bali and thinking this is one holiday where you may not be able to get in some shopping satisfaction? Think again! The island may be famous for its idyllic beaches, ancient temples and fun water sports, but it also offers some truly wonderful retail therapy too be it traditional handicrafts to brand name fashion. One of the best places to shop would be the Bali Collection, a shopping centre found in Nusa Dua. You can easily find Bali five star hotels within easy reach of this retail haven such as Le Méridien Bali Jimbaran which means you can easily spend the day indulging in a shopping spree.
You will find Bali Collection set amidst an expansive 8 hectare area and one of its fascinating aspects is the way it blends luxury shopping with traditional Balinese design elements. Within you will find an ideal mix of both local products and international brands as well as a whole range of other options for you to enjoy be it dining or even live entertainment.
If you are a fashionista you have much to choose from and well known brand names such as Billabong, Giordano, Levi’s, Polo and Quiksilver all have a home here, while other stores of the likes of Uluwatu, Sogo Departement Store, Bali Surf, Puri Sari and Lemon Chic also provide plenty of options for the fashion conscious shopper. Art lovers can head to stores such as Wikowi Art & Craft, Padi Art Market and Bali Art Collection, and you will also find speciality stores here including a money changer, jewellery shops and a bookstore.
All that shopping of course can work up at appetite and the many dining and fast food outlets at Bali Collection give you plenty of options to choose from when it comes to satisfying those hunger pangs. Frangipani Bali International Restaurant, Prada Exclusive Lounge & Grill, Tropical Bali Restaurant, Loco Café and Baskin Robbins are some of the spots you can head to when hunger strikes. Of course if you are looking for the ultimate in relaxation after a long day of shopping then there are the various spa & reflexology centres where you can get in some restful rejuvenation or just give tired feet some much deserved personal pampering!
