It likely takes a whole day to stroll around Bali’s retail hub, Seminyak, with hundreds of boutiques and eateries at its corners inviting you to stop by. If you only have a quick visit, it might be difficult to get Balinese sensations within a short time in the high-end area, which is only 30-minute far from Ngurah Rai International Airport by car. However, scrap your worry as one-stop shopping mall Seminyak Village has now opened its doors along with a whole package of Balinese treats.
Coming from the thoughts of Malaysian designer and businesswoman Dato’ Sri Farah Khan, Seminyak Village curates local art and cultures through boutiques and rejuvenation centers that offer Balinese fashion brands, as well as relaxing experience. In its airy space, where natural sunlight streaming through wide-spanning skylights, you will be pampered with both Bali ethnic and contemporary crafts from local artists.
You can find the products – from painted egg shells, Balinese batik sarongs, to jewelries – neatly showcased in two large souvenir shops called Marketplace and Indonesia Emporium.
