Mitsui Outlet Park, KLIA Sepang- A Shopper’s Paradise


Along with experiences, sightseeing, photography, local cuisine and street walks, what has slowly made a place for itself in travels is shopping. From buying just a souvenir for your memories to going back with a suitcase full of purchases, tourists have their myriad ways to define shopping. Gone are the days when your cousin got you a Ralph Lauren perfume or a Hugo Boss watch while returning from a foreign land. In today’s world there are international brands available everywhere. However, when you have a huge number of international brand outlets under the same roof with exciting offers and discounts, that’s when the place turns out into a shopper’s paradise. Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA Sepang, Malaysia offers exactly the same. It is located just 60 Kms away from Kuala Lumpur.

A joint venture between Mitsui Fudosan, a Japanese retail property developer and Malaysia Airports, Mitsui Outlet Park was opened in 2013 and has a factory outlet shopping mall concept with international brands from USA, Europe and Asia showcasing their products. There are 200 luxury, casual and international brand outlets here welcoming shoppers with ‘Omotenashi’, a Japanese concept of hospitality. The mall has an interesting architectural concept with a Sunshine square, Pier walk, Beach walk and a Tropical plaza. Apart from the brand outlets, the park has a host of facilities which includes ample parking space for 2,100 vehicles, banking/ forex services, first aid rooms, wheelchairs, kid’s playground area, changing rooms etc. The place also gives cross cultural experiences through outlets such as Japanese avenue which is a specialty store offering Japanese culture, art and culinary delights.







Mitsui Outlet Park has numerous fashion brands, fashion apparels, sportswear, kids wear, accessories, jewellery, optical, home ware, luggage etc. which makes it a retail paradise. However, what garners all the attention here are the offers and discounts up to even 70%. Foreign tourists can get an additional discount from every shop with a tourist privilege pass.





The gastronomic delights too aren’t behind with offerings ranging from Oriental to Continental to Malay cuisine. There are also food courts and cafes catering to requirements of diverse group of travellers and shoppers.








Another highlight of Mitsui Outlet Park in Sepang is its close proximity to Kuala Lumpur International Airport. There are regular free shuttle services from Mitsui Outlet Park to the airport every twenty minutes. Also, they have a flight check-in centre with a display of information about the arrival and departure of flights. The place also has a baggage storage counter for a hands free shopping. 




Shopping could be one of the main agendas during your visit to Kuala Lumpur and Mitsui Outlet Park, KLIA Sepang is well the place where you could shop to your heart’s content just before you take the flight back home.


P.S.: I visited Mitsui Outlet Park on an invitation from Malaysia Tourism board, but opinions are completely mine.
