Indonesia - Bali - Amlapura - 2005

We visited Amlapura markets as part of a day drive to other destinations. It was very interesting and colourful.

The market is undercover and is a warren of very narrow paths between stalls selling a variety of everything. We were a little apprehensive, as the closeness of people along the paths seemed like a dream come true if you were a pick-pocket. No problems occurred and we had a great time wandering around and looking at the various wares.

Some of the items were very different to what we had seen in other markets. We bought a lot of decorations used in the Balinese temples, such as trimming, umbrellas, etc.

Throughout the whole time there, we were the only western tourists which made the whole experience an adventure as well as fun.
