Located just 45 minutes away from the bustling city of Kuala Lumpur is Malaysia’s first hilltop premium outlet, Genting Highlands Premium Outlets. With more than 150 designers and brand outlets ranging from high-end fashion to luxury footwear and speciality items, it has fast become the go-to shopping haven for both locals and tourists alike.
As relaxing as going on a retail therapy sounds, here we have a list of tips and tricks to help you make the most of your time, so it’s a most efficient and fruitful trip as well!
Do check their website or social media page beforehand as some brands offer attractive discounts at certain times and days. If you’re curious or interested in something particular, call up and ask what discounts the stores are offering – you will be surprised to learn how much you can save for the bag that you’ve been eyeing on forever!
On top of that, it’s also crucial to find out the brands available at Genting Highland Premium Outlets so you can list down your wish list before shopping for a more fulfilling shopping experience.
Here are some the brands available: Adidas, Aigner, Coach, Furla, Hugo Boss, Kate Spade New York, Michael Kors, Moschino, Polo Ralph Lauren, Superdry, Tumi, Nike, Ted Baker, Braun Buffel, Royal Selangor, MaxMara, Converse and more.
You’re likely to spend the entire day walking and browsing, so it’s prudent to pick an outfit that’s comfortable. Though Gohtong Jaya is slightly warmer than the hilltop, it does get pretty chilly at night. Wear layers to keep yourself warm. Same goes for shoes: Pick a pair that’s easy to wear, walk in and remove.
Shop during the weekday
The best time to avoid crowds and long dressing room lines is during the weekdays. Come early or later in the evening if you prefer to have a quieter shopping experience. To avoid queuing up altogether, check your size for your favourite brands and the product availability before your journey so you can pick those up on your way to the cashier without wasting any precious shopping time.
