Bandung Factory Outlet
Great Shopping Experience For Everyone
Visiting Bandung will never be the same without shopping in the famous Bandung Factory Outlet (FO).
The history of Bandung factory outlet started in the late 90s. Bandung is well known as the center of textile manufacturer, not only in Sunda, but also in Indonesia. Its products fills up domestic as well as international markets. But sometimes the international buyers reject the products or the manufacturers produce more than the order to achieve economies of scale. These excess productions then enter the domestic market through factory outlets.
The concept of factory outlet started in Bandung, but now it has spread across Sunda. You can find factory outlets in Bogor, rest areas in Jagorawi toll road and Purbaleunyi toll road, as well as in Cipanas Puncak.
Most of these factory outlets sell clothes for all ages: men, women and children in one store. But you can also go to specialty store such as Bale Anak, which focuses on baby and children wear.
Since Bandung is definitely the family vacation destinations in Sunda, the traffic during weekend and holiday is very bad. Moreover, there are so many one way streets, thus, if you take a wrong turn, you will waste so much time just to return to where you were. Therefore, I recommend you to plan ahead: which area in Bandung you want to spend for a particular weekend. It is better for you to go to other area in the following weekend, rather than squeezing your schedule to drive back and forth across Bandung.
There are several areas of Bandung factory outlet. They are:
Bandung Factory Outlet in Dago and Riau
Most of the factory outlets are scattered in Dago (Ir. H. Djuanda) street and Riau (L.L.R.E. Martadinata) street until Aceh street. Although these streets are adjacent, it is still a big area for you to wander around. If you are looking for baby and children wear, you can go to Bale Anak, which is located in Sumatra street, still in the nearby neighborhood.
Whenever you are tired of shopping you can go to restaurants or food stalls nearby. Check out the restaurant list in Bandung restaurant directory. If you want to buy some snacks, you can go to Kartika Sari Dago.
You also can stay for the weekend in this neighborhood since there are many hotels such as Hyatt, Santika, Holiday Inn, Anggrek, and Riau hotel, or staying in the upper Dago area where Sheraton and Jayakarta hotel are located. You can see the complete list in the hotel directory.
In addition, there is a travel operator in Aceh street, serving Bandung Jakarta, so you don’t need to drive to Bandung.
Bandung Factory Outlet in Sukajadi and Setiabudhi
You can also find Bandung FO in upper Sukajadi street until Setiabudhi street. More fashionable people like to go to Rumah Mode in Setiabudhi street. Nowadays, there are many factory outlets opened nearby.
Setiabudhi street is the main road to go to Lembang, or going down the street you will enter Cihampelas street. Cihampelas is famous for its jeans stores. You can find many things made of jeans here. You also can find jeans trousers with unusual large size, which is very rare in Sunda, even in Indonesia.
