As Bali is an intersection for travellers and expats from all around the world, it should come as no surprise that the fashion designs here are a fusion of international styles. Over the past few years, Seminyak has become the place for these fashion lines to be displayed. Popular neighborhoods to browse include Oberoi Road, Jalan Raya Seminyak and Petitenget Street. Endless boutiques reside along these avenues, most of which feature high-end brands, one-off designs and novel home ware. Most of the shops sell their items with a price tag so be prepared to pay a premium fixed price. Below are a few retail shops that the team here at Seminyak-Villa.com recommends checking out.
Located off of Oberoi Street, Seminyak Square is a good meeting spot and dropoff location when looking to wander the nearby shops and cafes by foot. A small shopping arcade of its own, this corner locale consists of storefronts such as Periplus Bookshop, Quicksilver, Body & Soul and Casa Gourmet. Look out for their craft markets where they often display clothes and gifts at discount prices.
