The most popular Factory outlet (FO) in Bandung is Rumah Mode. Very crowded especially on weekends. Other than that are Mode Plus, Natural, Donatello (all these are located on Jl Setiabudi),
Blossom, Glamour, Raffles City, Jetset, Grande, Episode, Happening (all these are located on Jl Dago), Terminal tas, Cascade, Heritage, The summit (all these are located on Jl Riau).
What to buy: a lot of branded goods! Armani, Burberry, Tommy Hilfiger, Baby Phat, Bebe, Guess.. just to name a few! I can't list all.. it's too long.. lol
What to pay: all items are cheap! you can get an Armani t shirt from as low as rp80000
This place is more like a bazaar with so many shops in it. It has 8 floors to explore...different floor selling different things. Shopping here is much different from those factory outlets...it's hot here...n very2 crowded...especially on weekends. One good thing is that u can really bargain here. A pair of local made shoe cost from as low as MYR12...n surprisingly they're comfortable too.
U can find men, women n children wear here. Other than that...shoes, handbags, textiles, bed sheets, carpets n other stuff are also sold here. Everything is so cheap here. For those non brand conscious ppl...u can really shop here.
I would say this is the hottest factory outlet in Bandung. The place is even put on the road sign board...so I supposed this is a factory outlet not to be missed when u're in Bandung. It's big...interior n exterior were quite impressive. On weekends this place is packed...mostly with ppl from Jakarta. Men n women clothes sold here are up to date n prices are reasonable too.
This is another one of the many factory outlets in Bandung. Well, I've been to most factory outlets in Jalan Riau, Jalan Dago n also Jalan Setiabudi. They're all sell almost the same thing...women, men n children wear. Different factory outlet sells different brands...so u might have to go from one factory outlet to another to find brands that u want.
Things sold here are very cheap.
I didn't really explore the entire street of Jalan Cihampelas...it's quite a walk...so just checkout a few shops along the street. Most of the shops sold more or less the same thing...clothes...t-shirts, shirts, jeans...both for men n women. Things sold here at a very cheap price.

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.
