The other side of Legian-Kuta - away from the tourists

Venture down a "gang" (lane)
 Just 10 minutes walk from the tourist areas of Jalan Legian, on Jalan Patih Jelantik, is another side of Denpasar. No spruiking ("Transport?", "Excuse me, I'm not selling anything ..."), nor tattoo-covered, beer swilling bogans "That's awesome, Jayden!").
Towering fig trees, quiet temples and interesting curio shops.

Solitude, 20 minutes from the Legian Beach

Nautical fittings shop - great for the yuppy beach house
Tribal art and antiques
Native American kitsch (next door)
Clever re-using of materials - handbags, flooring, steps
