Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA Review
Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA opened a few months ago and we didn’t have time to visit the outlet until recently. We passed by the outlet in many occasions especially the time we are flying in and out from KLIA and KLIA2.
After the success of Malaysia’s first Premium Outlet (JPO – Johor Premium Outlet) in Johor, Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA tries to emulate the success and building the outlet near the two KLIA airports.
Why near the airports? For those who didn’t know, KLIA and KLIA2 are one of the top airports for transits. Thus, it makes it convenient for transit travellers to visit the outlet rather than going to the city and Mitsui Outlet Park offers free shuttle busses to both airports.
The Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA is the biggest largest factory outlet shopping mall in Southeast Asia. The total space is 25,000 sqm of commercial area with 140 outlets of luxury products, fashion, sporting and outdoor goods, a Japanese specialty store, entertainment centre and an amusement park!
However the entertainment centre and amusement park is still not ready yet and only the retail stores are open at the moment.
The outlet is fully covered and air conditioned. There is no free parking for this mall so plan your trip wisely if you plan to drive.
The mall is very easily to walk. I love the see through ceiling, the mall is bright and the layout is simple. It is a two storey outlet so you can easily browse thought the outlets.
You find the usual sports brand in the outlet. Big sport brands like NIKE, Adidas, Puma, Asics, New Balance, Sketchers, Dr. Martens and even Onitsuka Tiger are here.
There are also brands like Chateau de Sable. It is a popular kid’s apparel brand from Paris.
We did shop something here for our kid. The price is not cheap many because of the currency conversion.
There are some local brands here as well as the local watch chains.
There is a food court and a couple of restaurants. We heard Phra Thai is quite good thanks to recommendation from my Thai friends.
Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA is part of the KLIA Aeropolis Masterplan to position Malaysia as the regional Aeropolis hub.
Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA cost around RM 335 million of three phases and it is located six kilometres away from KLIA. There will be shuttle bus service from KLIA to the outlet.
This will be the first outlet mall in Klang Valley and Genting Premium Outlet is scheduled to open in the near future and that will be not the end of the Premium Outlets in the country. There will be two more expected to open, one in Melaka and one in Penang.
Don’t expect too much from Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA until everything is complete, that is our opinion based on our visit. We didn’t see many tourists during weekdays and we heard it is often packed during weekends.
We were slightly disappointed with the discount offered by most shops and the outlet missing many major International brands. Hope to see more from this outlet especially the Japanese brands.
