What makes me feel really surprised about the Ubud Night Market is that it only attracts a few curious foreigners hopping around while dominated mostly by the locals, who drop by for a quick cheap dinner after work. Ya, the atmosphere here is authentic Bali to its core.Located not too far from the heart of Ubud, Ubud Night Market is pinned at the intersection between Tebongkang and Sayan street. So this hot spot is also known as Sayan Night Market.So there is an interesting fact here: If you ask for the direction to the night market (when you’re even in Ubud), you might be pointed to Gianyar Night Market or other night markets. So you need to specifically mention Sayan Night Market.If you are a big fan of vibrant activities like Kuta nightlifes, Sayan Night Market is not a choice. Actually, it is more likely to attract those who love to explore the local living, more humble and traditional with make-shift tents and local customers moving back and forth, and the noise of chattering here and there.*Ubud Night Market – Things to knowWhere: 39 Jalan Raya Tebongkang,Ubud, BaliOpen Hours: 5 PM – 11 PMPrice Range: Rp5.000 – Rp70.000 for food; Rp2.000 for parking feeWander around and you may find some of the best dishes of Balinese cuisine like Babi Guling (suckling pig) with inviting aromas of spices or a bowl of Bakso (meatball soup) with a little tweak by replace the main ingredients from pork typically to chicken prefered by most locals.
