There are one too many factory outlets - open daily till late, and it can be very very crowded. I had local friends who drove us from one outlet to another - they sell factory run off, rejects etc and possibly the dump ground for overrunds as well.
Prices are cheap cheap - you get all kinds of brands -some made in Indonesia, others in Cambodia, Vietnam, Brunei etc. we saw lots of Gap, Guesss, Cherokee.
Some of the outlets are better managed - larger with nice aircondtioning - like at Heritage - prices are higher and the lay out is like a nice upper end departmental store and it has even a Japanese noodle bar upstairs - which serves very yummy banana fritters - banana katsu.
At Rumah Mode is also very nice - it has lots of good selection of clothing - and also has a nice lunch place - Bumbu Desa.
Here, they ask you to write what makes it so especial. Well, my answer is: NOTHING!!!. Cihampelas is a horrible, dirty, awfully ugly place where sell ordinary and old fashion clothes, specially jeans.
Some stores have a dummy, (Rambo, spider man...) but they are old and not even that make the street better.
Huge variety of sizes, colors, models, brands. Clothes for men, women, children and babies. Accesories, shoes, things for hair, underwear, pijamas .................
Very nice clothes and very cheap. The best way to take a good route and including as many places as be able is by car. A rented car cost Rp. 70.000 is worth it much better than take taxis.
Dago, Martadinata and Setiabuhdi were te best, we didn't try Buhabatu Street but we tried Cihampelas Street and there's nothing, believe me, nothing!!!.
One of the best outlets were in Dago Street called Up Town Factory diagonal from Kartika Sari where sell the best brownies than I've ever tried, ever!!!.
Other good outlets were: Renaritti in Martadinata and Natural in Setiabuhdi.
What to pay: Shirts / Blouses Rp. 40.000 - 70.000
Jeans / Pants Rp. 60.000 - 140.000
Sport Jackets / Sweaters Rp. 60.000 - 70.000
Underwear / Lingerie Rp. 5.000 - 40.000
Pijamas Rp. 20.000 - 60.000
Full of shoppers.. Rumah Mode is the best factory outlet in Bandung, highly recomended. Better for you to spare your shopping hours at Rumah Mode rather than the Cihampelas Walk.. For me.. visit to cihampelas walk or commonly known as ciwalk is just a normal visit.. maybe the goods offered is not up to my expectation.. at rumah mode you can but many branded cloth such as Nike, Replay, Burberry, Billabong, and many more and the lowest price.. you can expect branded jeans to be priced around USD10.. never find such deal elsewhere..
this market is a must for people who want to experience local buying market scene with bargain. is is held only on sunday morning until 11 am. take note of the time! by 7 am, it's already packed with locals.

Bandung is the heaven of Factory Outlets. There are hundreds of them in the city. Some are next to each other, three to four shops. They sell mostly women's and men's clothes.
This particular one is unique. Other FOs don't have any theme to its shop. Its just one building filled with clothes, local or imported goods/
China emporium sells things that has something to do with china, from furniture, clothes, small souvenirs and old chinese posters. It 's always busy especially on weekends and most busy on Sunday around lunch time.
Most of the visitors are from Jakarta. But people from other parts of Java treat this FO as a tourist object in Bandung. Sometimes you can see big tourist busses outside the building. And if you see this, don't bother getting in to the shop. Too crowded....
