1-day Bandung Shopping Tour
- Pick up from the hotel or Bandung airport
- Pasar Baru Trade Center
The first place you’ll visit today is Pasar Baru. Located right in the city center, this place is considered the number one shopping place in West Java province. As the place is always very crowded on the weekends and holiday seasons, it’s strongly advised that you always pay attention to your belongings here. To avoid the crowd, it’s also advisory to come here early in the morning, not later than 9 am, as there is also traffic jam in the area in the afternoon.
What to buy here? You can practically find almost anything here, from fashion of all genders and styles, bags of all kinds (ladies, school, and traveling bags), sandals, shoes, toys, batik, fabric, and all sorts of crackers.
Tips: Make sure to bargain before you decide to buy anything here.
- Riau Street shopping
After lunch, you can continue your shopping trip to Riau street which is famous for factory outlets. Here you can find lots of factory outlets, all within walking distance. For those who are not so good at bargaining but don’t want to miss the enjoyment of shopping, then this could be your favorite place. Located around 10 to 15 minutes of driving from Pasar Baru, you can feel a lot more relaxed here. Unlike Pasar Baru which is more crowded, there are far less people coming to the factory outlets here. But finding a parking spot could be a hassle if you come here on the weekends or holidays as this area is also one of the most popular areas to visit among the Jakarta travelers.
What to buy here? The majority of products sold here are fashion related items of all sizes, genders, and models.
Most factory outlets are open from 9 am to 9 or 10 pm each day.
Tips: If you run out of cash, you can exchange some money at each of the money changers in the area. Make sure you compare the rates before exchanging your money. Also, it’d be wise if you compare the prices at another store before you buy anything as sometimes you can find very similar goods sold at lower price at a different store nearby! So shop wisely.
- Paris van Java
Last but not least, is Paris van Java. As one of the most popular shopping malls in Bandung, this place is almost very crowded in holiday seasons.
What to find here? You can find not only fashion outlets, but also supermarket, cinema, and lots of choices of good restaurants. So you don’t need to get starved when shopping here. Located in the north Bandung, this place is another shopping haven you can go to if you’re looking for exquisite products. This place is open from 10 am to 10 pm.
- Rumah Mode
As one of the leading factory outlets in Bandung, this place is a must-visit shopping place in Bandung. Open from 9 am to 9 pm, this place is located around 15 minutes of driving from Paris van Java.
