With great discounts on well-known international and regional brands, you don’t need an excuse to visit Design Village Penang. But if you’ve been waiting for a reason to treat yourself, this is it!

A one-stop destination, you’ll find irresistible bargains on clothes, shoes, accessories, cosmetics, chocolates, toys, bedding, and even luggage bags. Choices are thus aplenty, with about 70% of the 150 stores having opened at the northern region’s only outlet mall.

Spread out over 400,000 square feet, the open-air, single-floor mall is billed as a ‘green, tropical village’ due to its lush and thoughtful landscaping. Greens are planted throughout to keep the place cool and sheltered, with soothing water features and lots of seating areas to rest your tired feet. Rest assured the walkways are covered and kept cool by powerful fans.

All in, it sets the mood for a pleasant day out with your girlfriends or family.

Getting There

Design Village is located at Bandar Cassia, Batu Kawan, on Penang’s mainland. The turn-off is the first exit on the left from the island’s Second Bridge, so it’s easy to get to if you’re driving.

Otherwise, hop on a free shuttle bus from Gurney, Queensbay or Komtar.
