As we all know, shopping in Bali is legendary, with visitors to the beautiful island blown away by the variety of goods, venues and styles. But believe us: shopping in Canggu is awesome, too!
Once a destination mainly for the surfers, Canggu is actually now one of the coolest places to stay, explore and shop in all of Bali. It’s not just surf shops and surfboard shapers that you’ll find in Canggu now – shopaholics will have just as much fun in Canggu as they will in Seminyak, and perhaps even more.
