Tips for Shopping Your Wedding Souvenirs in Bali

Shopping in Bali is just like shopping in other popular destinations, as the more pleasant you are to work with, the better deals you’re likely to get. Price negotiation is appropriate in Bali and is also expected when you deal with the market owners. We’ve listed the guidelines below in case you’re not familiar with bargaining while shopping in Bali:

  • Remember to smile! – Use your manners when negotiating with a local business owner, and don’t forget to smile.
  • Be reasonable – Before you negotiate, make sure to know how much the item is worth so you won’t offend the owner.
  • Keep in mind that you can’t negotiate in national chain stores – When you’re shopping at a mall or boutique store, the items aren’t usually negotiable as they are ticketed with fixed prices.

The corporate office usually sets these prices and you can’t negotiate them with the cashier.
