Gopi Style: Cushions in Sanur Bali:
Gopi Style is a cute little shop in Sanur, that specializes in cushions. Located on Jl. Danau Tamblingan Perahu, the shop is quite visible, due to the bright colored cushions in the window. Cushion covers are stacked inside the shop and available for 40,000rp-70,000rp. The inside stuffing is an extra 22,500rp. Cushions come in a variety of styles, including Japanese, Chinese and Indian. The staff told me that all the items are made in the shop and the predominant material is cotton.

Paris Van Java: Shoes in Sanur Bali:
Paris Van Java is a shoe shop in Sanur. Located on Jl. Danau Tamblingan, the small shop stocks ethnic wooden shoes, made in Bandung Java. Checking out a couple of pairs, I saw that they are made of wood, with a black, rubber, thread, the tops sections coming in a selection of colors and styles. The shoes are all handmade and can be made to order. When I visited, there was a sale on, 20% – 50% off of selected items.

Bali Primitive Design: Ethnic t-shirts in Sanur Bali:
Bali Primitive Design is located on Jl. Danau Toba in Sanur, and sells t-shirts, with primitive designs. There is something like this on Jl. Legian in Kuta too. While I was in the shop, I asked the female staff where the t-shirts were made. A deep voice said, “We make them here.” Sitting behind the counter, was a Balinese man working on a computer. He designs all the shirts and creates them.

Agus Art Shop in Sanur Bali:
Sanur Bali has a decent beach and was really the first resort area in Bali. Sanur appeals to European tourists and is family friendly with good hotels, plenty of shops and places to eat and a lower stress environment than Kuta.

Located on Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai at Suwung Kauh, the information centre is an education in itself on the ecology and management of Mangroves. There are two trails to choose from – a short route of about one hour, and the other, a longer route of nearly two hours.
