Shopping in Jakarta is supposed to be very cheap. So we decided to ask at the hotel reception for good places to shop. The 2 giggling over excited receptionists sent us to Senayan City which was by any means not cheap. It was very similar to the high end malls in Singapore, just bigger. Needless to say we didn’t buy anything there except Crispy Kreme doughnuts and the ever reliable Chai Latte at Starbucks.
The next day I googled for factory outlets and off we went to D’ Brasco Factory outlet, South Jakarta.
It was exactly the kind of place we were looking for. With 3 floors to boast, it housed brands like Burberry, Abercrombie and Fitch, Levis, Nike and others. We did some shopping there. Now I’m not sure if the clothes were authentic or not but they were definitely good quality. I wouldn’t say no to a $25 Jeans which was as soft as velvet even if it was fake.
