Malaysia has five outlet malls currently. The first outlet mall in Malaysia was Oriental Village in Langkawi but that now just become a tourist spot for Langkawi SkyCab and others. Johor Premium Outlets opened in 2011 and following its success, four other outlet malls were opened between 2011 and 2016 namely Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA in Sepang, Freeport A’Famosa Outlet in Malacca, Genting Premium Outlet and Design Village in Penang.

Now, more outlet mall projects are coming. But almost all these projects are either under planning or on hold except for Silverlakes Village Outlet in Perak. Due to financial reason and ongoing pandemic, it is understandable the developers want to restructure their projects.
