Wholesale Fashion Center in Jakarta: ITC Mangga Dua Mall

ITC Mangga Dua is a shopping mall in North Jakarta specializing in fashion, clothes and accessories – both retail and wholesale. It’s kind of like the Indonesian equivalent of Bangkok’s Platinum Fashion Mall.

Six levels of intense shopping at ITC Mangga Dua.

ITC Mangga Dua is actually part of the Mangga Dua shopping district which includes five other complexes – Mangga Dua WTC, Dusit Mangga Dua, Pasar Pagi Mangga Dua, Mangga Dua Mall, and Harco Mas Mangga Dua. ITC Mangga Dua focuses on fashion and accessories whilst the other malls specialize in computer accessories, electronic devices, automotive products, etc.

Inside ITC Mangga Dua, there are hundreds of shops packed into six levels selling just about everything…clothes, bags, shoes, accessories, watches, spectacles, home decor, kitchen stuff, flowers, the list goes on. And of course food. 🙂

Yes you read it right – ICE CREAM SINGAPORE!!

On my first visit, I only managed to cover three levels. The second time I went with my parents, we spent the entire day there and yet still didn’t complete all six floors.

Ohhh and if you happen to see something you fancy, buy it right away. DO NOT attempt to mull it over and locate the shop later on – there’s a high chance you may not find it again (speaking from experience :/).

An overwhelming sight.

If you get hungry halfway through shopping, you may want to check out Bakmi Aliang (rated 4.7 on Google). We walked past it by chance and seeing how it was packed with an endless stream of people, we decided to give it a try!

Bakmi Gede (with pork!!) for IDR 20K.

I saw some locals squeezing lime and adding black (?) sauces to their bakmi and decided to follow suit. Turned out to be pretty good stuff. After my fulfilling meal, I was energized to start shopping again.

Some of my buys from my most recent trip to ITC Mangga Dua:

Handmade cookie monster rattan storage (IDR 180K).

Waterproof jelly flats/wedges perfect for rainy days (or floods) in Jakarta.

IDR 70-100K for each pair.

P.S. Bring enough cash $$$.

P.P.S. Must bargain/haggle!

Have a great time shopping. x
