A walk down the Art Market in Bali – Immerse yourself in excellent craftsmanship

A walk down the Art Market in Bali offers you plenty of eye-catching items that you’d no doubt jump at – the alleyways are packed with small shops that are full to bursting with multi-coloured goodies!

Main features

Ubud Art Market is the perfect spot for you to buy souvenirs. Woodcarvings, woven skirts, Balinese paintings, oil lamps, Buddha statues and batik items will add more character to your collection of memorabilia.

Evening strolls

You don’t necessarily have to buy anything; you could just walk down the alleyways to witness the Balinese artistry and craftsmanship.

On your first day…

You could spend your first day walking around the market to get a thorough idea – the next day; you can walk down to the market from your Bali resort hotel to make the actual purchase.

Other things you must know

More often than not, items on sale don’t have any fixed prices. Haggling is something you have to do if you want to get a reasonable price. Also, there are many accommodation options not too far away from the market – a good example would be Anantara Seminyak Bali Resort.

A final point…

If this is your first time in Bali, don’t be in a hurry to buy things, do your research first!

Pamper Yourself for Better Wellness – Relax Your Body and Mind at a Spa

A day spent entirely on self-care is a day well spent! Everyone should visit a spa on a regular basis to treat and relax both your body and mind. Here are just a few benefits in case you need a push to your nearest spa.

A massage can treat various aches

A massage at a good spa can reduce, or in some cases, entirely remove various aches and pains. Inform your masseuse of any pre-existing conditions and they’ll focus on treating the area. Of course, to properly treat body aches, a regular visit to the spa is needed to continue treatment.

Detox at the sauna

Sweating is one way of ridding your body of toxins, and there’s no better place than a sauna for that. A spa day is ideal after a night of overindulging and follow it up with a massage to get maximum benefits.

Bonding time

A day at the spa can be a great bonding experience if you go with friends or family. A lot of hotels like Anantara Seminyak Bali Resort, for example, may even offer couple packages at the spa. A Bali resort hotel may even have their own unique therapeutic oils for massages.

It directly affects your hormones

That’s right, getting a massage releases a hormone known as serotonin in your body. Serotonin helps to regulate your mood and appetite, which is why a day at the spa instantly makes you feel better.
