Garlic Lane in Bali is named after a restaurant of the same name on Jalan Sahadewa, one of the out-of-the-way and narrow side streets off Legian’s main roads. This 200-metre-long route provides you with a lot of variety, comprising art shops, DVD stores, fashion boutiques, woodcarving galleries and others. The lane forms part of regular shopping walks through Legian, connecting the restaurant-lined Jalan Padma and the Merta Nadi Art Market on Jalan Melasti.

Most consider the Garlic Lane shopping street scene to be better than Kuta’s and it’s the first street you can conveniently walk to from the end of Poppies Lane after leaving the beach. By not being on the main road, you can often find better bargains here. Souvenir items are pretty much the same variety as any other art market in Bali: paintings, woven and batik table runners, miniature Balinese mask fridge magnets.

Some shops offer fixed (but reasonable) prices, while others are simply places to put your Bali bargaining skills to the test. Several shops stay open until late at night, while others close right after sunset.
