ULTIMATE GUIDE TO DISCOVERY MALL BALI

INSIDE: Everything you need to know about Discovery Mall Bali.

When the sweat is running down the inside of my thighs, and my hair looks like it’s been fried in a hot chip pan, it’s time to escape the humidity and regain a sense of dignity, style and elegance (if that is even possible with kids in tow) in the air-conditioned chilliness of a Bali shopping mall.

The best shopping mall in Bali to freshen up is the Discovery Mall Bali in South Kuta – THE BEST Shopping Hotspot in town.

It’s the second largest mall in Bali, after Kuta Beachwalk.

Find all the details of what you’ll find there below.

Guide to Discovery Mall Bali Stores

The Discovery Mall is also a great gauge to determine the upper limit of what you should pay at Bali markets when bargaining.

I love bargaining but sometimes cannot be bothered doing a deal, or having market stall holders try it on, or roll their eyes at me.

Shopping at Discovery Mall can be a welcome relief.

Benefits of shopping at Discovery Mall Kuta

I definitely don’t begrudge the couple of extra dollars it might cost me to shop here instead of on the street.

I figure a few dollars is worth my sanity, and I consider it my contribution to the air-conditioning bill!
