Tips For Visiting The Canggu Markets
If you’ve never shopped in Canggu (or Bali) before, there are a few tips that will make the experience a lot smoother for you.
- Bring Cash – Most vendors at the Canggu market (and in all of Bali) will only take cash. Make sure you bring enough cash with you.
- Bargain Respectfully – While haggling is a part of shopping culture in Bali, it’s important to make sure it’s done respectfully. Try negotiating between 25% and 50% off the ask price. The vendor will probably meet you in the middle somewhere.
- Don’t Show Too Much Interest – If you’re going to be haggling, it’s important that you don’t come across too excited about any items. That will make you an easier “mark” for a higher price.
- Use Your Own Reusable Bag – Avoid adding to Bali’s single use plastic problem and bring your own tote bag to the market.
- Go Early – Want to have access to the most selection and best deals at the markets? Try going early, around the opening time. You’ll have less crowds and the vendors will be more likely to cut you a deal.
The Best Markets In Canggu

Love Anchor is one of the most popular markets in Canggu. It’s located in the heart of Canggu, really close to some of the most popular restaurants and bars.
You’ll find plenty of clothing, accessories, and homewares at Love Anchor Market. It’s a great place to grab some souvenirs at the end of your trip.
Because of its popularity, Love Anchor does tend to be on the pricier side for Bali. You can haggle a bit, but I found the shop owners to be pretty firm in their pricing.
However, the prices are still great compared to Western countries. Keep in mind that you are supporting local artisans and business owners when you shop at any market in Canggu.

The prices here tend to be a bit lower than the more popular markets in Bali, so it’s a great place to come for a deal!

Are There Any More Markets In Canggu?
If you’ve read any other posts about the best markets in Canggu, you may have noticed some others that are not on this list. However, those markets have closed and those other posts likely contain outdated information.
Old Man’s Original Canggu Market and La Laguna Gypsy Market are currently closed. Covid was really hard on Bali and caused a lot of businesses to shut down.
Unfortunately, this means that a lot of information that you’ll find online is out of date and inaccurate.
However, things are constantly changing in Bali right now. Make sure to check Google reviews and social media pages before you plan your trip to avoid any inconveniences.
Other Things To Do In Canggu
There are SO many things to do in Canggu apart from the beautiful markets. Here are some other super fun things to do in Canggu.
P.S. I have a full list of fun things to do in Canggu that you definitely need to check out!!
One of the top things to do in Canggu is rent a surfboard and catch a wave. There are several beaches in Canggu where it’s possible to catch a surf break and you’ll find surfboard vendors at every beach.
If you’re not a confident surfer, I highly recommend taking a surf lesson. The beaches in Canggu can be really crowded and inexperienced surfers will have trouble navigating the lineup.
This two-hour surf lesson in Canggu will help you brush up on basics and gain confidence before you hit the water.
Chill At A Beach Club
If there’s one thing that Bali is famous for, it’s extravagant beach clubs. Canggu has its fair share of beach clubs, with Finn’s being the most popular.
Other popular beach clubs in Canggu include The Lawn and La Brisa. They’re a little bit more chilled out than Finn’s but still have pools, fancy drinks, and music.
Visit The Tanah Lot Temple
Tanah Lot Temple is one of the main cultural things to do in Canggu Bali. The most popular time to visit this temple is at sunset. You’ve probably seen pictures of Tanah Lot with a beautiful sunset backdrop!
Don’t want to figure it out on your own? Take a sunset tour to Tanah Lot that includes pickup and drop off from your accommodation and an English speaking tour guide.
Things To Know Before Visiting Canggu
- They drive on the lefthand side of the road in Bali. Make sure you look both ways before crossing the street!
- Canggu (and Bali in general) is a very safe spot to travel. The main thing you need to look out for here is petty theft, especially phone theft. Keep your personal belongings close to your body and wear your bag or purse so that it’s not facing the street. I also have a full post about safety in Canggu with tons of tips.
- Public transportation is pretty much nonexistent. You’ll need to rent a motorbike or rely on motorbike taxis and private drivers to get around.
- Check the bill for added service fees. Tipping is not required in Bali but leaving a small tip is always appreciated. Just be sure to check the bill before you tip because the service fee may have already been added, especially in areas like Canggu.
- Lots of restaurants accept card payment now, but some are still cash only. There are quite a few ATMs around town, so you shouldn’t have any problems getting cash out.
