The area of Kuta is a good place for shopping. From fake watches to handmade clothes, you will find a good offer of cheap souvenirs. If you are looking for nicer objects you should go to Legian, or even better, Seminyak.
The beach of Kuta is crowded during the day with European and Australian visitors. Many Indonesian tourists, who are not into sunbathing, come here around 18h to see the sun set. The ones coming from remote provinces of Indonesia enjoy talking and taking pictures with the "Bules" (=Caucasians).
