Bandung is like consider a shopping paradise where we can purchase alot of goods from. Most of the factory outlet there are filled with some genuine, some rejects and some fakes outlets. Of course it depends on your budget and the area that you are heading to. Bandung have 3 districts that are famous for shopping. As the place I am staying is called Dago, an area which is only 5 minutes walk out to this great factory outlet shopping district.
In the streets of Dago, located at downtown area is where this factory outlet are located. The first factory outlet that I went, Glamour already cost me 60% of my budget alocated for shopping. The clothing materil is good, the brand that I love Nudie Jeans which is a famous brand in Australia, is available in this outlet too, took us about 2 hours in this shop as its huge in there. Besides that, can get Polo, Paul Smith, Hugoboss, Ed Hardy, and many more at a cheap price, ranging from ID 45 000 – ID 500,000, which means as cheap from RM20-RM300.
The whole streets have about 20 outlets here, so be prepare to get heavy damage here, do prepare alot of cash when you do come here, major credit cards are accepted too.
In this area also do have Indonesia local designer too, which is about 15 minutes walk from here.
Next destination we went for shopping was highly recommended by my friend is Setiabudi area that is filled with alot of branded factory outlet and one of the famous one in the area that shall not miss is ‘Ruman Mode’ which host alot of international branded brands with some of them are rejects.
Its more like a open concept area and it might look nobody outside but inside the factory outlet, its filled with LOTS of people. They have cafe and Javanese coffee is available here too, besides this the first shop we went in sell LV, Gucci bags with very reasonable price.
This is the 2nd area that I got totally broke for my first day of shopping. Just took me half a day to spend all my money.
The outlet is located at the streets of 41 Jalan. Dr. Setiabudi. All taxi driver SURE know this place.
