Basically, there are four main areas in Bandung for Factory Outlets which are Jalan Setiabudi, Jalan Riau, Dago District and Cihampelas Area.
Here is a list of the 10 most recommended factory outlets in Bandung you must certainly visit.
1. Rumah Mode Factory Outlet
This mother of all factory outlets in Bandung, pronounced as Rumah Mo-Day, gets super jammed up on weekends and holidays so you have to be very well prepared for this. Normally, the taxi would only take about 5 to 10 minutes to get to Rumah Mode from the hotels in town on weekdays. However, it can even take up to 20 or 30 minutes. Get ready to stand in a very long queue just to try on the clothes you have a crush for as soon as you are inside Rumah Mode since it is the largest factory outlet in Bandung. It happens because Bandung is the most popular weekend getaway for people from Jakarta. The crowd is going crazy at the weekends so you would better go there on weekdays.

Jalan Setiabudi No. 41F
2. Heritage Factory Outlet
It is one of the popular places with a very good selection of the latest fashion clothes. While shopping there, you can admire the building looking like one of those old colonial heritage buildings with Greek columns with a cafe as the side. Thus, it becomes very popular and cool place to hang out.
