Dago, Martadinata and Setiabudhi: A PLACE TO RETURN
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.

The Secret: One of the favourite factory outlet
Also one of the favourite factory outlet in Bandung. I noticed many people carrying their paper bags. Never had a chance to see what the fuss all about...but recently had the opportunity to check it out. Interior...it looks like an exclusive place...using black as the feature colour. Their collection of men and women clothes are up to date...you'll have choices here, but prices are slightly higher...perhaps due to the quality of products, designs and the fact that they're much up to date. Anyway, worth checking it out. You might find what you like here.
Jalan Cihampelas aka Jeans Street: More clothes, jeans n etc
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.
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

Jetset: One of my favourite place
Jetset is another factory outlet, located at Jl Dago. You can find men, women and children wear here. Quality of products is good...prices also reasonable. You can get clothes from as low as
50, 000 Rp...those with better quality and brand from as low as 69, 000 - 270,00 Rp.
What to buy: Shop for clothes!!!
Blossom: Factory Outlet
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.
The Oasis: Factory 0utlet Too
Another factory outlet located at Jl. Riau, the same row as Heritage and The Secret. Here, you will also find men, women and children wear.
Why bother going to one factory outlet to another? Prices and the quality of products may differ. Brands and designs also may differ from one factory outlet to the others. So, you may not find exactly what you want in only one outlet.
Pasar Baru: Women's Paradise

What to pay: most shops only accept cash so u better prepare loadssssssss of cash before u come here.

Branded Club Boutique Outlet: Factory Outlet
It's another factory outlet. You'll find men, women and children wear here. If you're lucky you might even come across some rejected original branded items. Some are rejected due to the not so neat stitches, logos, buttons n etc.
Rumah Mode: Famous Factory Outlet
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.
