What are the items that I should bring with me because they’re not available (or are too expensive) where I am going?
Bali should have everything you are accustomed to at affordable prices.
Will anyone have particular trouble finding clothes that fit?
This should not be a problem. Clothing is relatively inexpensive and there is a variety of clothing stores and tailors in the city. There is also a wide range of prices and sizes in clothing and purchases can be made from exclusive boutiques, regular shops or street vendors.
What grocery stores do expats in your city shop at?
Supermarkets in Bali are modern, full-service stores. Many have bakeries and deli counters, as well as meat, dairy products, canned, frozen and packaged goods that are imported from Europe, Australia, New Zealand, the United States and various other parts of the world. You may also purchase local and imported beer, as well as liquor and wine. Because many foods are imported, prices may be higher than in your home country. Additionally, fresh seafood is abundant and locally produced poultry and eggs of good quality are available.
Some recommended stores are:
- Bali Deli
- Kafe Batu Jimbar
- Supermarket Bintang
- Gourmet Garage
- Milo Designs
- Paul Ropp
- By the Sea
- DFS Galleria
- Body & Soul (in Legian and Seminyak)
- Digon Food Specialties
For more information on these stores, check your local yellow pages or contact Crown Bali.
Where can other household items (such as cleaning materials and home furnishings) be found?
Cleaning materials can be found at most large supermarkets. Household items are often purchased at Simpang Siur Mall and Ace Hardware.
What are factors that might affect my shopping habits in this country/city?
Factors that might affect your shopping habits are price, special needs and also where you live.
