[Travel] Freeport A'Famosa Outlet Village @ Malacca | Affordable Shopping Place

Freeport A'Famosa Outlet was a hot topic in social media lately, talking about the over 100 retail units like Nike, Puma, Cotton On, Forever 21, Carlo Rino, G2000, Elle, Levi's, Samsonite, Clarks and many more; which means you can get greater saving comparing with normal shop at shopping mall. Currently they are only 60 brands opened but do expect more on 2016!

Freeport A'Famosa Outlet is located at Malacca, just outside of A'Famosa Resort, so it definitely become a checkpoint during your short getaway to Malacca. It is an open air dutch heritage design building with five water features, a lake and a carousel about 180,000 sq.ft designed by LGM Architecture, leading Australia architects.

I'm living in the city, Kuala Lumpur; taking approximate around one and half hours to the place by driving. Malacca is a popular short getaway place so please do estimate and plan the time properly, try to avoid peak hours like 5 to 7 p.m. You will be stuck in the highway. No joke!

By Driving
• 55 minutes away from Sungai Besi Toll
• 30 minutes from Malacca

By Public Transportation
From KL Sentral / TBS (Terminal Bersepadu Selatan) / KL Puduraya Station, buy tickets to Melaka that goes via Alor Gajah/Tampin. Bus ticket from MYR 12-13 per ticket depends which bus you take. From there, take approximate about 10 minutes taxi to A'Famosa. Try negotiate the price from Taxi driver (approx. MYR15). Journey about 2 hours.

You may book bus ticket here :

By KTM Train
 From KL Sentral - Tampin. Train ticket from MYR 17-27.  From there, take approximate about 10 minutes taxi to A'Famosa. Try negotiate the price from Taxi driver (approx. MYR15). Journey about 2 hours plus. 

If you interested to visit this place, what I suggest is come at the morning when the peak is still okay. If you aiming for sports, please do note that most of the sports outlet required to queue like Nike & Puma which is good because shoppers can shop in a better atmosphere. Some of famous fashion brands like Forever 21 and Cotton On requires queue too depending on the traffic.

The price from every brands in Freeport A'Famosa Outlet Village is about 40-80% cheaper comparing with shopping malls. Some of it even offers BUY 2 FREE 1 promo depends on period time but definitely a greater saving when you shop at here. Freeport A'Famosa Outlet Village also some restaurant for you to break when you're done with shopping.

Freeport A'Famosa Outlet Village not only a place for you to shop but they also have nice attraction like carousel, lake and five water features for you to get some nice photography / OOTD.

I bought two pairs of Nike Shoes (MYR 129 & 179), then three Denim Jeans from Forever 21 (MYR 110 + MYR 110 + Free; Buy 2 Free 1 sales), a Black Dress from Cotton On (MYR 59), Carlo Rino wallet (MYR 179.90) which burned MYR 707.90 calories from my piggy bank. Definitely a great saving for me as I can't get all of this from shopping mall with this price. Really have a great shopping experience at Freeport A'Famosa Outlet Village.

I will put this as one of must visited place to Malacca in future. Shopping at Freeport A'Famosa Outlet Village on day time and then heading to Jonker Street for some food hunting which will definitely make your getaway getting even more interesting.
