For upscale and glitzy gowns, uptown girls should hit the Farah Khan boutique at the swanky W Hotel Bali ( Jl. Petitenget, T: +62 3000 106, retreatbali.com).
Further down south at Nusa Dua, the junketers may bask in the shopping ease at Bali Collection (BTDC Complex Nusa Dua, T: +62 361 771 662, bali-collection.com). The presence of SogoDepartment Store just a few trots down from the Bali Nusa Dua Theatre certainly encourages guilty pleasure.
