There are a few Premium Outlets in Malaysia where two being down south. One is at KLIA – Mitsui Park and the other one is JPO – Johor Premium Outlets. Good news is that now those on the northern part get to enjoy the latest and also the largest outlet mall in Malaysia. Design Village Premium Outlet Mall located at Bandar Cassia, Batu Kawan – Penang is housing variety of exciting international and local brands, both premium and high street. From fashion and children’s wear to sports and home from restaurants to cafes. Spanning 400,000 square feet and has 150 stores set in a lush 24-acre tropical garden.
Love the wide sheltered walkways as the design of this village indeed added a whole new shopping experience. Adidas (The Biggest Adidas outlet in Malaysia) where it sure do not feel it is biggest (or I miss out some of them), Aldo, Banana Republic, Bonia, Starbucks, Levi’s, Superdry, Timberland, Esprit, Sacoor Brothers, Cotton On, Carlo Rino, Ripcurl, Citizen, Padini & more branded outlets will be coming soon.
Converse here is indeed reasonable.
SuperDry is certainly a big bargain where starting from 20-60% and on top of that they do have additonal 15-30% when you buy more.
Padini here is like a warzone for last weekend as the clothes starts as cheap as RM 8 onwards.
they have children park too
Esprit here also not bad
Akeimi also a big bargain.
Levi’s is alright.
Adidas is awesome as the shoe rack like just got hit by tornado.
Parents who spend alot of time here can let their kids to hop onto the train ride for RM 5 per round.
This place will certainly become my next shopping ground when I am heading back to Penang as heading here is so convinient where it is directly located at the first exit on the left if you are coming from Penang island Second Bridge.
Sad part is there are lack of many premium brands or maybe there will be in the coming months as current occupancy is like 50%-60% only.
