Halo Anto, terima kasih untuk komentarnya. Mungkin waktu kesana Jalan Cibaduyut lagi dalam perbaikan. Sekarang ini sudah bagus jalannya dan jauh lebih lancar.

Kalau mau lebih lancar lagi, sebaiknya hindari akhir pekan. Kalau harus kesana saat akhir pekan, sebaiknya pagi hari sebelum jam 12. Selamat berkunjung kembali ke Jalan Cibaduyut :).

It depends on your needs. Jl. Riau has plenty of good factory outlets, while Jl Cihampelas normally has less good quality products to buy (but of course they are cheaper or I could say "good value for money" - at least to many people). Happy shopping Christian and Marie!
