JPO (Johor Premium Outlets)

JPO Johor

JPO is also known as the Johor Premium Outlets that is located in Nusajaya, Iskandar Johor in Malaysia and is the first premium factory outlet in the country.

Having opened in December 2010, this is the first and proper factory outlet in Malaysia and JPO caters to namely designer stores for those seeking a good bargain.

In other words, you can easily find high-street fashion brands among the many international and local brands here.

The reason why many people come here is that you can get items on sale at JPO which are from 30% to 80% discounts making it affordable to own designer brands.

Overall, if you have not been to the Johor Premium Outlets, you should make a trip there one day, and prepare to spend at least half a day here. 

My inaugural visit to JPO was in March 2012 as it was nearby the new and upcoming theme park, Legoland Malaysia.

After my site visit to the theme park, our group had some time to spare so we paid a quick visit to the factory outlet here. Below are various pictures were taken at the JPO, Malaysia.

Conclusion

You can also read about my visit to Rinku Premium Outlet in Osaka, Japan as I have a small weakness of visiting any factory outlets wherever I travel.

The Rinku Outlets is exactly the same layout as the JPO as both are part of the international Premium Outlet chain.

After writing this article, the Genting Premium Outlets opened in 2017 and is equally an interesting place to visit due to the cool weather.

And if you are a serious shopper, check out my list of Factory Outlet in Malaysia as it highlights where each of them is located around the country. 

Finally, for anyone who is heading to Johor for work or holidays, you may want to remember that the JPO or Johor Premium Outlets are just a short drive from Johor Bahru city.
