With crowded Seminyak bursting at the seams, Bali’s ever-popular villas and resorts are herded further up north into drowsy Kerobokan. A swirling palette of contrasts, Kerobokan throws up calm beaches and sweeping rice terraces alongside ritzy villas and a ballooning visitor population. The proximity to Seminyak leads to some spillover of Seminyak’s signature bohemian appeal, supplying Kerobokan with its fair share of hip locales. Shoppers will be delighted to find a good mix of art galleries, furniture and home décor stores without the usual crowds.

The destination where it all started… Seminyak deserves credit for the tirade of sunseekers and holiday-goers making regular pilgrimages to the island of the gods. The place to see and be seen, Seminyak is the hip hangout of Bali’s upper crust – a famed hotspot for wining and dining, boutique shopping and all-round gallivanting. Start from the main drag of Jalan Oberoi (also known as Jalan Laksmana) before winding off into the narrower side streets of Jalan Kayu Cendana and Jalan Kayu Jati for unique homewares, jewellery, furniture and fashion finds. For all manner of indulgences, Seminyak truly hits the spot.

The artistic and cultural epicentre of Bali is a breathtaking melee of nature, art and mysticism. Culture is ingrained into the Javanese way of life and nowhere is this more apparent than in the leafy recesses of Ubud. The holistic and spiritual breeding ground is overrun with art and craft communities and markets with an astounding selection of handcrafted jewellery, ceramics, sculptures, woodworks and home accents. Scrimmage around Jalan Raya Ubud and Monkey Forest Road where local artisans and craftsmen congregate to sell their wares. Ubud is also the place to go for traditional batiks and sustainable and eco-friendly fashion.
