Denpasar City - Bali Rent Car
It is one of the short tours in Bali, which takes around 4 -- 5 hours. The tour will bring you to the unique places like traditional market where you can see the local society perform their activities in the market.
Badung Traditional Market located in the main road, Gajah Mada Street, is the center of the town’s economics. This area has become a shopping centre of Bali. This market cannot be discharged from the existing market across Badung’s river, called Kumbasari Market because the local society will feel that their shopping experience would be incomplete without going there to the Kumbasari Market, especially for the Balinese who want to buy their ceremonial items.
Kumbasari Market sells costume and clothing items at prices relatively cheaper than clothing items sold at the shops in Gajah Mada Street which are mostly owned by citizens of Chinese clan. Kumbasari Market was previously called Peken Payuk (pot market); it sold such items as gerabah (jar like pot), cobek (clay plates), paso (clay buckets), caratan (clay water jug), jeding (clay barrel), penyantokan (mixer from clay), coblong (clay cup), kekeb (rice cover) and others. All of these items are used as kitchenware and for ceremony. Since this market was most popular as a place to sell payuk pot, hence Kumbasari Market in the past was referred to as Peken Payuk or pot market.
This market is open around the clock - from 5 o’clock in the morning to close at 5 o’clock in the evening. Then, the evening market opens from 05:00 pm until 05:00 am the next day when the morning market starts again. Meanwhile the Senggol Market in Kumbasari opens at 02:00 pm and closes at 11:30pm.
The unique name of ‘Senggol’ Market is possibly taken from the situation and condition of people’s movement on shopping where they must jostle each other for position because of visitor denseness. This Senggol Market sells a variety of cheap foods from the Balinese, Javanese and Chinese cookery. It also sells various types of adult’s and children’s clothing.
The location of Denpasar Market is encircled by shops along the street of Gajah Mada. On the right side there is Sulawesi Street which is famous for textiles. Denpasar Traditional Market is progressively strengthening the identity of Denpasar’s economic center which is open 24 hours and is never silent or empty of visitors.
At traditional market, you will find transactions taking place between buyers and merchants with multifarious merchandise to satisfy life’s daily needs such as kitchen supplies, appliances required for Hindu ritual, fruits and traditional clothes. In this market, you will see the local people, especially the women who carry extremely heavy items in a big basket balanced on their heads.
Jagatnata Temple is the biggest Hindu temple in Denpasar town, which many Hindu people in Denpasar visit to pray, particularly on full moon and new moon. This temple is full of religious and artistic ornaments. In the center of temple area, there is a high temple building encircled by the fertile tropical garden. From the entrance gate to the temple building you will find the Balinese decorations full of meaning to Hindu devotees.
Bali Museum is located right next door to Jaganatha Temple and in this museum you will find a lot of the ancient artifacts of prehistory which have very high artistic value. The collection in this museum provides a different experience on your tour. If the museum is not opened on the day of your tour, we will offer the alternative to visit Bali Art Center to see the biggest open theater in Denpasar town.
