Mitsui Outlet Park

6 years ago, Malaysia had its first branded outlet known as the Johor Premium Outlet (JPO). Later on, another branded outlet known as the Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA came to the scene in May 2015. In contrast to the local brand Johor Premium Outlet, the Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA is actually an outlet of Mitsui Outlet Park, a beloved Japanese luxury goods outlet mall chain and they have 13 of these similar outlets across the entire Japan. In addition, the Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA is the first Mitsui Outlet Park outlet that is outside of Japan and the first of its kind in the South East Asian region. Essentially, this Mitsui Outlet Park is a joint venture project between the Mitsui Fudosan Co Ltd, a giant Japanese real estate company and Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad.

With an area of 25000 square metres with around 140 outlets when all the 3 phases are completed, the Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA is huge. This outlet is only located around 60 kilometres away from the Kuala Lumpur city and 6 kilometres away from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and KLIA2, an airport designed for budget air carriers. The first phase was completed in 2015 and Phase 2 will be completed sometime this year in 2018 while the final phase will be completed in around 2021.

As this is part of a luxury goods outlet mall chain, you can expect to find many off-season products from upper middle to high end brands such as Ermenegildo Zigna, Diane von Furstenberg, Aigner, Hugo Boss, Bally, Hush Puppies, Timberland, Nike, Adidas, Puma, Porsche Design, Rip Curl, Vinci, and so on. These brands are typically sold for 30 to 70 percent off from their standard retail prices. You can also visit the Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA official website to see a list of brands that are available in this outlet.

In contrast to the Johor Premium Outlet or any Premium Outlets franchise in the world, the Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA looks rather like a typical shopping mall than a premium outlet. It is indoor and fully air-conditioned with plenty of sofas and benches to sit on if you would like to take a break from your shopping spree. There is a food court and several restaurants such as Straits House, Sushi Maru, Gao!Gao!, and M.A.D for hungry shoppers. There are also 4 different interesting concepts that you can see inside the outlet park and they are Sunshine Square, Pier Walk, Beach Walk, and Tropical Plaza. For example, you will feel as if you are on the beach when you walk into the Beach Walk area.

In terms of current brands available, the Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA do not offer certain brands such as Coach, Columbia, Fossil, Kate Spade, Furla, GAP, Michael Kors, Padini, Swatch, Rubi Shoes, TUMI, Victoria Secret, and Bath and Body Works that are usually available in Johor Premium Outlet. However, this may change once the second phase and third phase is completed.

Due to its close distance to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and KLIA 2, the Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA is an ideal shopping place when you are waiting for the next flight or between flight transits. The outlet also provide amazing Shop and Fly facilities such as the Flight Check-In center where you can store your luggage for free of charge, SITA Self Check-in kiosks machines, computers with printers to print your check-in flight and boarding pass, and LED TV displaying the flight information system to keep you updated on your next flight. The Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA offers free shuttle bus service, taxi, and car rental if you need to get back to the airport. The free shuttle bus from Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA to KLIA and KLIA is scheduled to run every 20 to 30 minutes. The first bus will depart at 8.30AM and 8.40AM from KLIA2 and KLIA respectively while the last bus departs at 11.10PM and 11.20PM. From 10.10PM to 11.10PM, the bus will depart on every 30 minutes instead of the usual 20 minutes. There will be a total of 41 bus trips from KLIA and KLIA2 to the Mitsui Outlet Park every day and this includes Saturday, Sundays, and Public Holidays. The whole ride will take less than 15 minutes and it is comfortable and convenient for travellers. From KLIA2, you can get a free shuttle bus service to the Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA at Transportation Hub Level 1, Car Park Bay B9/B10, and exit door 3. The free shuttle bus service is also available at KLIAs main terminal Level 1, Gate 2 and exit door 2. However, it is important to note that the Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA only opens from 10AM to 10PM. Other useful facilities that are available in the Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA includes a mosque, ATM machine, money changer, changing room for babies, accessible restroom, and parking area for disabled people.

The Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA main intention is to target tourists, bargain shoppers, big shoppers from the ASEAN region, China, Middle East, and the rest of the world. They also hope to attract Malaysians living in the Klang Valley area to visit the outlet. According to a news report by New Straits Times on 4th of January 2017, the Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA has hit least two million visitors for the first phase. Datuk Badlisham Ghazali, the managing director of Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad, also said that the total numbers of visitors looked good so far for the first phase and most of their customers are tourists that come from China in this news report.

If you are a tourist, you can also take full advantage of the special discounts and shopping privileges available by visiting the Information Center at the Ground Floor of the Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA to collect your Tourist Privilege Pass.

If you are local Malaysian and plan to drive there using your own vehicle, you will be pleased to know that there will be ample parking spaces available. According to an update on 2nd of March 2016, the Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA parking rate for the first hour is RM2 and RM2 for every subsequent hour after that. The penalty for loss of ticket is RM50.

KLIA2 Parking

download

Traveling with a budget airline has been a growing trend among us Malaysians recently, so let’s not forget that budget flights are all departing from KLIA2 now. So typically when I drive to KLIA2, I will head to the Gateway@KLIA2 and drop off the travelers as it’s more convenient to place the luggage on the trolley instead of pushing the trolley from the car park to departing hall. You are allowed to stop to drop off the travelers so take your time.  KLIA2 official parking is connected with main KLIA2 building.

There are no need to go through the hot weather or rain. However a passenger will have to take lifts when going to or from the main KLIA2 building.

Gateway@KLIA2 is strategically located between the drop-off and KLIA2 Main Terminal Building. KLIA2 has a 2 blocks 8-storey car park that directly adjoins the Main Terminal, and accommodates over 6,490 vehicles including motorcycles. The parking bay is fully covered and equipped with surveillance cameras. You will also notice guards circling the area on motorcycles to ensure the safety are maintained.

I prefer to park at Block B parking and drive towards the closest lift and head towards level 4 which brings you to the lobby. The parking area is spacious and there is allocation for disabled-friendly driver and hybrid cars as well. Ironically I have spotted some non-hybrid cars parked In the hybrid car parking. There is also parking allocation for 800 motorcycles.

For Touch n Go users, make sure your balance is not less than RM20.00. There is a 10% commission applicable when you are using Touch n Go. Autopay machines are located on levels 1, 4 and 7. Please make sure you have small change as the machines do not take notes above RM50.00.

Duration  Parking rate
First One (1) hour to Third (3) hours RM4.00 per hour
Fourth (4) hours to Sixth (6) hours RM3.00 per hour
Seventh (7) hours to Ninth (9) hours RM3.00 per hour
Tenth (10) hours and Above RM2.00 per hour
Daily Maximum Rate   RM46.00 per day
Motorcycles RM1.00 per entry
Lost Ticket  RM50.00 per day

* Inclusive of 6% GST Tax

 

As of August. KLIA2 has lowered it’s rate for long term parking. This would be very good to travelers who wants the convenient to park at KLIA2. If you park long term, the day 4 charge would start from RM 20 onwards

 

klia2 hybrid parking

Besides parking for disabled, Hybrid cars will also enjoy special privilege with special allocated parking space nearer to departure and arrival halls.

Tips

If you are a frequent flyer and plan to park your vehicle in KLIA2 to travel, you can consider “Long Term Car Park” area which provides a shuttle bus to the KLIA/KLIA2 airports at a 15-minute interval. The parking rate atLTCP is RM2.50 for an hour or RM32 per day, while motorcycle will be charged only RM1 per entry.

You may also consider parking at the Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS) at Bandar Tasik Selatan which charges you RM3.00 a day for parking fee. From TBS, you can take the KLIA Transit from the Bandar Tasik Selatan station to KLIA2 for RM26.50 per trip, or the Jetbus to KLIA2 for RM8.00 per trip.

Putrajaya Sentral

KLIA2 users can consider parking at Putrajaya Sentral at RM 5 per day or RM 35 per week while taking a bus to Klia2 for RM 10 per trip. There is also a KLIA transit to KLIA from Putrajay Sentral at RM 6.2 per person. Putrajaya Sentral is located approximately 30KM from KLIA2.
