If you are shopping addict, definitely you must visit Pasar Baru Trade Center (PBTC) when traveling to Bandung. PBTC is a house for many kiosks that sell clothe, bag and shoes at low price even some of them wholesale their goods for retailers. they used to open from 8 am – 5 pm.
PBTC is located on Otto Iskandar Dinata street. You can find it from Google map with this GPS coordinate : LAT -6.917521 and LONG 107.604237. It has seven floors and they provide both elevators and escalators for visitors to explore the floors.
I took a photo from 3rd floor so you can imagine what the building inside looks like.
Let’s see what they sell
The most item the sell is clothing, such as T-shirt, batik (Indonesian traditional clothes), cloth, Moslem dress, any kind of women, men and kids dress, and so forth. The other items you can find are bags, shoes and food. Of course I can’t mention them precisely. It’s very hard to remember all goods except the food :). Just imagine, there have about 15.000 kiosks as reported by local government ! Do you believe it ? Is this not a paradise for shopping junkies ?
Here are kind of few goods you can buy
The Food Court
Shopping needs energy to explore the kiosks and does make you hungry. Therefore you have to know the food court. The area is on 6th floor and the food is quite varied. You can find Sundanese cuisine, other Indonesia cuisine, Indian cuisine, etc. Take a look the video below
1. Always bargain the price
2. PBTC is very crowded on week end, as you can see at the following video. It was taken on Saturday :
So, if it’s possible you better go on week days.
