Branded Outlet – Pavilion KL, Kuala Lumpur Traveller Reviews
If you enjoy all the deisgner brands, this is the place to go. However, bear in mind the prices are more expenisve than what you can get in Singapore. Most of the designer labels are also under CLUB 21, the same as in Singapore. We are not sure why the prices are higher? Even with a 50 percent discount, it is same as what you can get in Singapore if not higher than in Singapore after you convert. So we were a little disappointed.
We went last week and there was no sale.;(
There was some Racing Car promotional event at the atrium.
The mall carries most of the well known brands like Marc Jacobs, DKNY, Coach etc.
There is also a Parkson inside. The Parkson is also expensive when we convert the items into Singapore dollars. So we do not find it of good value. We look at moschino products and even with a 40 percent discount, it is still more expensive than sales in Singapore.
We just manage to walk and window shop.
There is a food court we believe is opened or co-shared by the Singapore Food Court people.
As much as this was a shopping trip, we went home disappointed as there were nothing worth buying designerwise.;(
We hope the shops can have more discount in the future. Otherwise KL may not be attarctive.
Foodwise, we felt it was good even at the street vendor level. We went to a night food street…forget the name but was close by to the mall, maybe 10 to 15 minutes walk only.
Just 8 minutes from our hotel at jalan Bintang.
The food street is crowded. There is a stall opposite from a 168 store and it has yellow table cloth..we had dinner here and it was delicious. We ordered stingray, malaysian hokkien noodles, sweet and sour chicken, asparagus with sambal belachan….yummy! With beverage it costs $80 ringgit for 2 pax. So it was reasonable.
Besides this mall there area many other malls so if you stay around here, you will not regret!

Factory Outlets in Malaysia – Travel Food Lifestyle Blog
Over the years, numerous Factory Outlets in Malaysia have opened and this has become some sort of trend for bulk shopping for Malaysians and also tourists visiting.
Malaysians have always traveled overseas to shop and in the last five years or so, international brands have made their way into Malaysia offering choices of cheap factory outlet shopping here.
Factory Outlets in Malaysia
These factory outlets in Malaysia are located in different states and some of them require some traveling to get to them.
However, with the Malaysian economy going strong for certain sectors, this has invited others to consider opening in Malaysia as the country is trying to brand itself as a shopping hub.
I would also like to remind you not be confused with some local Malaysian brands as the companies have named themselves as factory outlets like Factory Outlet Store (FOS) which is on a very small scale and more to retail as you can find them in just about any of the shopping malls in Malaysia.
In the consumer’s mind, a factory outlet is a specialized place where reputable well-known brands can retail their past season’s collection at a special discounted price.
Below is a list of the Factory Outlets found around Malaysia
|Johor Premium Outlets, the first Premium Outlet in Malaysia (Image from Gaya Travel)|
1. Johor Premium Outlets (JPO)
The first proper factory outlet to enter Malaysia is the Johor Premium Outlets or JPO as most locals call it.
Their strategy was to open in the state of Johor which neighbors Singapore and in the up and coming development of the Iskandar Region.
The Johor Premium Outlets opened in December 2011 and has catered to most Malaysians and Southeast Asians.
In terms of volume, JPO sees an average of 4 million visitors yearly which include locals and tourists and brands you can find here range from most international and local names.
The beauty of JPO is that it is located in Iskandar nearby Legoland Malaysia and some other smaller theme parks and attractions.
As the first factory outlet in Malaysia, and under Simon Genting group, they have made a name for themselves catering to many tourists visiting Malaysia.
|One of the outlet stores at Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA|
2. Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA Sepang
The second-largest factory outlet to open in Malaysia is the over-anticipated Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA (MOP) which opened in May 2015.
This was the talk of the town back then as many consumers in the Klang Valley were excited as it would only take one hour to drive to this new Japanese named factory outlet on the way to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport or KLIA.
The MOP also serves as a shopping stop for travelers who are transiting at KLIA or KLIA2 and also for those travelers leaving Malaysia, have one last shopping stop before they reach the airport.
Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA offers shoppers a total of 128 shopping outlets occupying a massive area of 25,000 square meters, while the location of this outlet is perfect as it is strategically located just 6 km from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport and the new KLIA2.
One of the highlights here is Japan Avenue, which is a place that exhibits and promotes authentic Japanese products, technology, cuisine, service, and entertainment.
All items are imported directly from Japan and are branded as a space to experience Japanese culture.
By 2021, Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA Sepang will be the largest outlet mall in Southeast Asia where a total of 190 shops will be available after the expansion, which is supposedly completed by 2018.

6. Horizon Village Outlets (HVO)
Another massive factory outlet in Malaysia that is set to make headlines is the Kuala Lumpur International Outlet or KLIO which was originally planned in 2014 and was scheduled to open in 2016 or 2017.
But to date, after we checked online, there has been no news or information that has surfaced on this massive branded factory outlet project. It was stated in a press release a couple of years ago that the construction would begin in September 2014, with the grand opening slated for 1 July 2016.
Update April 2017: Horizon Village Outlets will open in 2018.
Kuala Lumpur International Outlet Horizon Village Outlets Sepang is a joint venture with Horizon Group Properties and Mainstay Holdings Sdn Bhd, a local property and construction firm with plans to build a 400,000 square foot factory outlet in the Cyberjaya district of Selangor.
One of their brandings is that a large portion of KLIO will be focused entirely on luxury brands. A total of 140 stores are also planned for KLIO catering to luxury or near-luxury brands selling all kinds of merchandise in a luxurious European style setting.
KLIO HVO will have six entrances from the car park including the drop-off area and all the outlets will be located one level above.
Retailers include popular names like Coach, Nike, and Polo – while other brands like Hugo Boss and Burberry offer previous season’s collections at discounted prices.
The entire project is designed by an international team of architects from Ross Adams USA who worked on Horizon’s stable of outlets in the United States.
To date, no added information is available therefore, we are just including this as a reference for the future if their project is still on.
|Sunway Ipoh Premium Outlets. (Artist impression by Sunway Group)|
7. Sunway Ipoh Premium Outlets / Lost World Shopping Mall
Another much-awaited factory outlet in Ipoh is being planned but there is some confusion over what it will be called.
To date, there are two names, one is Sunway Ipoh Premium Outlets and the other is Lost World Shopping Mall.
This RM300 million project is spread over 35 acres of land near the Lost World of Tambun, Ipoh’s popular water park and will adapt the same concept as Sunway Resort City in Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
This massive project will also feature popular luxury outlets like Michael Kors, Coach and Kate Spade in a 600,000 square feet area.
Also branded as an integrated city, Sunway Ipoh Premium Outlets or Lost World Shopping Mall will also have a hotel, theme park and shopping mall there. Plans also include 8 premium outlets which are 10,000-20,000 square feet each.
To date, there has been no official announcement on when the Ipoh factory outlet will open, but a recent report in the local newspapers mentioned that the Lost World Shopping Mall will most likely open between 2017 and 2019.
|The Two Rawang Outlet Mall. (Artist impression by DA Land)|
8. The Two Shopping Outlet Mall Rawang
A mega massive project called The Two Outlet Mall in Rawang, Selangor is also taking shape and this will be one of the largest projects to date.
This integrated lifestyle concept features a shopping mall with a focus on entertainment, dining and shopping through integrated developments such as an outlet mall and indoor and outdoor theme parks.
The Two Rawang will also be built on a massive 24-hectare piece of land which is slated as ambitious but interesting with a target of attracting local and international tourists who travel along the north-south expressway.
The main attraction here besides the factory outlet will be the largest indoor theme park in Southeast Asia which is also designed by the Sanderson Group.

The project was also officiated and launched by the Malaysian Tourism Minister. Overall, if the project moves smoothly, we could see The Two Rawang opening in 2018 or 2019.
|Oriental Village in Langkawi was the first factory outlet concept which did not do well but is still there today.|
First Factory Outlet in Malaysia
For the record, the first factory outlet in Malaysia was actually in Langkawi, back in early 2000 when the Oriental Village was opened to cater to the huge tourist influx of Langkawi back then.
However, the factory outlet business model did not do well and eventually was forced to change its concept to just another place having some stores selling local handicrafts, clothes and so on.
If you are heading to the Langkawi Cable Car or Langkawi Skybridge, the Oriental Village will be the first thing you see.
There is hope for tourism numbers to increase in Malaysia as the Ministry of Tourism has indicated that they are indeed working extra hard to bring in more tourists over the years and China being one of the main targets.
However, with a population of only 30 million in Malaysia, many a concerned about the oversupply of shopping malls and factory outlets in Malaysia where it may not be a novelty anymore, especially with the growth of online shopping.
To find out more about shopping places in Malaysia, read this article on shopping malls in Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur which highlights the best places to shop in KL.
But for the shopaholic or tourist, a visit to Malaysia will definitely make you visit at least one of these factory outlets in Malaysia, mainly to see what kind of offers there are, especially with the currency conversions so have a great shopping time here.

90,000 Outlet that surprised me • DARSIK travel & lifestyle
15 June 2016
I can’t call myself a fan of outlets, but a couple of weeks ago I went to the Metzingen outlet city near Stuttgart with a friend to accompany me and, to my great surprise, I got into it.
1. I’ve been to outlets before – for example, in Barberino near Florence, in Servalle near Milan or in Bister Village near London, but every time shopping there left me feeling like a hard day at work.A lot of people, too long distances, too inconvenient location of shops, which forces you to walk many, many kilometers … In general, for the last five years I have not gone to outlets. In Metzingen, I started to like it from the very beginning, that is, from the first glass of sparkling wine, which starts the day for those who were not too lazy and bought a VIP shopping pass. This pass comes with an additional 10% discount at most outlet stores.
2. The outlets I’ve been to before were built like villages with even rows of identical houses.Things are different in Metzingen: Imagine a town called Metzingen, in the center of which there are shops of the most famous brands offering discount goods. The town has a main square with an information point and a restaurant, one decent hotel with a restaurant, and a coffee shop. A little, but worthy.
3. This is how the streets of that part of Metzingen, which is occupied by the outlet, look like. Stores are conveniently grouped by zone – sportswear, casual wear, premium brands.
4. I liked the design of the shops – some buildings are said to have received architectural awards.
5. Separate building with children’s stamps. In Metzingen, there is also the opportunity to use the services of nannies, if necessary.
6. And here is the advantage of the location – a river flows through the city, which adds comfort to the place and does not make you feel as if you are walking through a huge shopping center.This is important for me – I do not like malls, and shopping in Dubai, for example, is my nightmare come true.
7. Nice industrial design.
8. Metzingen is the birthplace of Hugo Boss, the outlet is now owned by his heirs. The brand’s store in Metzingen is considered the largest in the world!
9. The main thing that attracted my friend and I to Metzingen was the large number of luxury brand stores. Here, for example, is the huge Max Mara store, which contains all the brands – Max & Co, Sportmax, and Max Mara.
10. A large store of Ermenegildo Zegna, one of my favorite men’s brands. We must return with my husband!
11. Excellent Tod’s (I love their shoes!), Hogan, Missoni.
12. Gucci and Armani. Even Bottega Veneta seems to open in June!
13. I was in Metzingen on Wednesday, there were very, very few people. On weekends, I think it’s much livelier.
14. Burberry, where I really didn’t go.
15. Prada! As many as two floors!
16. And around – vineyards. I think you also appreciated the nice design and nice landscape.
17. Escada (huge sizes!), Bally, Wolford, Diane von Furstenberg are also represented in Metzingen, where we found a perfect wedding dress for a friend for the formal part of the celebration (we, in fact, went after it!), Coach, Tory Burch , Calvin Klein, many denim and sports brands.
18.Unfortunately, you cannot shoot in stores. That is, you can take a picture of something you like as a souvenir, but it is difficult to capture in detail, for example, the interior and the assortment. But I, nevertheless, managed to photograph something for you. So, Prada sandals – about 250 euros. By the way, I did not notice a shortage of sizes in any store. I wear undercarriage 38, my friend – 39, a lot was available to us. I ended up taking similar silvers at Gucci, but without the platform. I love shoes with a metal finish, they cool any outfit.
19. Prada raincoat – 450 euros. I was great and didn’t buy a single coat, even though it was damn hard!
20. Miu Miu bags – about 350 euros. It seemed to me that this is just a series made especially for the outlet, because I have never seen similar ones in stores. The bags from those that were really in the collections of past years cost about 1000 euros, a little soothing colors like beige or black.
21. Tod’s very comfortable sandals, which eventually became mine.The perfect last! They cost about 260 euros. There was a very attractive promotion in the store: when buying a pair of shoes, they gave a 50% discount on bags. We were twirling around in our hands a beautiful Tod’s bag made of tinted blue python, which cost only 700 euros! 2800 euros – the price of the store, 1400 euros – the price of the outlet, 700 euros – the final price. As a result, all the bags in the boutique went to an enterprising Chinese uncle.
22. While Prada and Tod’s stores are designed in the same way as ordinary stores of these brands in ordinary cities, Max Mara is located in a large hangar.Things are not hung here by capsules, but by type and color. The selection of classic Max Mara coats is decent, prices are 750-850 euros on average. If you are looking for a coat for all time, I advise you to come here. Little shoes, but a lot of classic dresses, shirts, trousers. If you have a strict style, then this is your place.
23. I ended up buying a neoprene bomber jacket with a small discount. By the way, I have not seen huge discounts anywhere, perhaps for 50% or more it is worth coming during the sale, which has already begun.Yes, and of course, you can and should issue a refund of tax free. At Stuttgart airport there are no queues either at customs or to receive a refund, which is also very convenient.
24. Huge Jimmy Choo with an excellent selection of boats in all sizes and colors. The bottom line? Two pairs in emerald and blue. The issue price is about 270 euros per pair at the usual retail price of 450 euros. Personally, I don’t care what year my classic pumps are from. Jimmy Choo, by the way, has a very comfortable last.
25. Gucci. Bags from 1000 euros, many accessories. In the end, I bought sandals, paying 250 euros for them.
26. Bring men to Metzingen – the Hugo Boss is simply unrealistic in size.
27. Two or three huge floors! You can buy everything from socks to coats at once.
28. The Italian restaurant in the square was quite pleasant.
29. We spent almost the whole day at the outlet, going after it to the magical medieval Tubingen, which I already told you about.Despite the fact that the outlet offers different types of shuttles, including delivering a Mercedes directly to the flight and a helicopter transfer, we decided to prefer a car – and it is convenient to transport purchases, and you can get where you want. Tubingen is a 30-minute drive, Stuttgart, which turned out to be very nice and which I will talk about soon, is about the same. We easily managed to get to know both cities in three incomplete days and spend time usefully at the outlet, although it seemed to me that it was easy to spend at least five days in the region, and I would still be around the outlet, but I had worn out my legs and all the money. spent.
30. There is a direct Aeroflot flight to Stuttgart (and it costs less than a flight to, say, Italy), so I honestly wonder why I didn’t get here earlier. Many, to whom I managed to tell about my trip, answered me in the spirit: “Oh yes, we know this outlet is great!” Is it your turn to arrive at Metzingen? What is your impression?

Outlet market in Russia will increase by 76%
The outlet market in Russia will increase by 76%
According to JLL, by the end of 2020 the volume of high-quality supply of outlet centers in Russia will increase by 76% and will amount to 206 thousand.sq. m. In the coming year, four new outlet centers with a total rentable area of 84 thousand sq. m. will be opened in the country. m and a new phase of the existing complex (5 thousand sq. m.).
Dynamics of outlet center openings in Russia
1. Outlet Village Belaya Dacha, Moscow
2. Fashion House Outlet Center, Moscow
3. Vnukovo Outlet Village, Moscow
4. Outlet Village Pulkovo, St. Petersburg
5. Brands` Stories Outlet, Yekaterinburg
6.Fashion House Outlet Center, St. Petersburg
7. Novaya Riga Outlet Village, Moscow
8. The Outlet, Moscow
9. Vnukovo Premium Outlets, Moscow
The most active development of outlets is taking place in Moscow – more than 80% of the future supply will appear in the capital. According to JLL estimates, after the launch of new outlet centers, the share of retail sales of this format in the total turnover of Moscow and the Moscow Region will grow from 0.34% to 0.61%. For comparison, in the UK now this figure is 0.78%, and in 2020 it is projected to grow to 0.82%.
“The saturation index with outlet centers per 1,000 inhabitants will also increase, approaching European countries, where this format is well developed today. Nowadays, there are 4.2 sq. M per 1,000 residents of the capital and the Moscow region. m of area of outlet centers, and with the entry of new projects on the market, it will almost double – to 7.8 sq. Thus, taking into account the commissioning of all new facilities, Moscow will approach the European level of provision with outlet centers, ”comments Polina Zhilkina, head of the retail real estate department at JLL.
Provision with outlet centers per 1,000 residents
However, the capital has room to grow. JLL analysts estimated the size of the Moscow outlet market based on data on the share of this format in retail turnover in the developed market of the UK and other European countries. According JLL, market capacity is 206 sq. M. m, while in fact the market volume by the end of 2020 will be equal to 157 thousand.sq. m.
The format of outlet centers is gradually developing outside the capital. First of all, in St. Petersburg. By the end of 2020, the quality supply of outlet centers is expected to grow by 74% in the northern capital due to the opening of the 1st stage of the Fashion House Outlet Center and the 3rd stage of the Outlet Village Pulkovo. Nevertheless, even taking into account future projects, by the end of 2020 the share of sales in outlets in the retail turnover of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region will not exceed 0.44% according to forecasts, and the provision of space will grow to 5.3 sq.m from the current 3 sq. m per 1,000 inhabitants. Based on the European indicators of the availability of outlets and the structure of retail turnover, the market capacity of St. Petersburg in the long term is about 70 thousand square meters. Thus, in the next 5-7 years, another 1-2 outlet centers may appear in the city.
In addition to quantitative growth, outlet centers have room for qualitative development.
“The share of cafes and restaurants in the pool of tenants of classic shopping centers has been growing over the past few years, while in outlets this trend has been less pronounced.Previously, it was believed that the presence of restaurants in outlets is not a very important factor, but practice has shown the demand for food in such complexes. The variety of cafes and restaurants increases not only the time spent in the center, but also the average bill, ”adds Polina Zhilkina.
Outlet development projects outside the capitals were announced a long time ago. However, the first opening took place only in 2018, when the Brands’ Stories Outlet Center was launched in Yekaterinburg.
There are prospects for the development of outlets in other large regional cities. Taking into account the gradual development of the retail real estate market and the growth of key indicators – sales and attendance – in existing projects, outlet centers will be increasingly represented in Russia.
“We have estimated the capacity of the outlet market in the regions of Russia based on the development of the regional retail real estate market, on the basis of retail turnover, brand representation, including luxury and premium segments, and the level of household income.Based on the results of the study, a list of cities was formed that are the most promising for the development of the outlet format, – comments Vladislav Fadeev , Deputy Head of Research Department at JLL . – According to our calculations, the largest number of square meters of the outlet center could appear in the Sverdlovsk Region, where the Brands’ Stories Outlet Center has already opened in 2018. The Krasnodar Territory is the second largest in terms of the potential area of outlets. The emergence of a new outlet format for the region in the capital of the region is a logical development of a fairly mature retail real estate market in Krasnodar.The Rostov Region closes the top three.
Market capacity of outlet centers in key Russian cities
* 10 300 already exists in the Brands’ Stories Outlet Center
“In general, outlet centers are a promising vector for the development of retail real estate in Russia, and in the near future the format will spread not only in the largest cities of the country. However, there are also a number of constraining factors.First of all, it is the presence of brands in Russia and their willingness to work with such formats. In Central Europe, brands really put a lot of emphasis on development in outlets, while in Russia the penetration of premium brands is not so high yet. Another reason is the location, in Russia they are still very close to the city itself, while in Europe outlets are located far from the city, where the cost of land and construction costs are lower, which ultimately allows the tenant to offer lower rental rates. in comparison with shopping facilities located in the city center.However, this factor is due to the specifics of Russian realities – the distance here is greater than in Europe, while people are not ready to spend much more time on the road, ”notes Anders Liljenstolpe, CEO of JLL.
