Lotte Outlet Mall ( 롯데프리미엄아울렛 )

So recently I visited this mall and was pretty impressed with the shops, food options and general layout of the mall. Parking was super easy and for those wanting to come by bus, there is a stop just across the road.

First I’ll give you some quick info about the mall:

Lotte Mall Dongbusan branch is Asia’s largest premium outlet mall, the multi-shopping complex Lotte Mall Dong Busan Branch opened up on December 23, 2014.

It has 2 two basement levels and 4 above ground floors. The mall contains 551 brands including 407 outlet stores and an additional 114 shops in the shopping mall, selling a variety of items such as electronic items, daily goods and heaps more at discounted prices. It also has a cinema with 6 theaters, but also a lighthouse observatory overlooking the sea, fountain square and rose garden.

Part of the reason I made my way out to this recently opened Outlet Mall is the fact that it is located right next to one of Busan’s most famous temples, Haedong Yonggungsa Temple which is great as you can visit both on the same day 🙂  (btw if you haven’t heard of this temple, you can see what all the fuss is about on TripAdvisor).

 

Tip:  click the ‘more options’ link to open it in google maps which gives you more information.

From Seomyeon, it will take just over an hour to get there which is not too bad because you can also visit Haedong Yonggungsa Temple while you are there. If you have time, I would definitely recommend travelling on further to Gijang Crab Market ( 기장 대게시장 ) which has some incredibly tasty seafood (with Crabs being the highlight).

The Crab Market can be reached by bus in 30 minutes from Lotte Outlet Mall or Haedong Yonggungsa Temple. The good thing being, you can then take a direct bus back to the city from the Crab Market.

 

Bus 181 takes you there 🙂

 

Anyways back to the OUTLET MALL!

We arrived by car and it was very easy to find a car park although it was quite busy. Plenty of staff outside showing customers to free parking spots which was very convenient.

Gravel parking lot outside. There is plenty of parking underneath as well.

Everything was brand new so it looked extremely tidy.

Mall, Mart, Premium Outlets and a Cinema. Almost everything (just missing a spa).

Once you get off the bus, start walking towards the tower 🙂

Lotte everything.

Some pics from inside. Heaps of shops for both Men and Women.

Not sure what this giant icecream-looking thing actually is supposed to be tbh…

Wasn’t that busy which was nice. Plenty of space and the amenities were good.

Depends on what and how much you want to buy, but a good couple of hours would probably be enough.

ABC Mart is normally a stop-off when I want/need to buy some shoes as they stock larger sizes. Unfortunately I don’t have the luxury of rocking up to any store and expecting they have my size 🙁 however I actually like the range of shoes ABC Mart have so I managed to seek out a pair I liked.

They were a great fit so I bought them (men, including myself seem to only take a few minutes to locate and buy an item – girls on the other hand…..).

Outside alleys with street names. Helps when reading the guide map I guess.

Freaky looking statue is located right next to the small water feature.

I do believe this place was based on Santorini (Greece).

Few cafes in the background in you are interested in a coffee.

The statue again.

Picked up a few items while I was here. It is an outlet mall after all.

 

DSC_0270
Just checking what other stores they have.

 

DSC_0273
Found a stall outside selling these. Couldn’t resist a snack 🙂

 

DSC_0274
Pretty standard donuts. Keeps the hunger at bay.

 

DSC_0282
Upper levels outside are much the same. NBA and MLB stores are located up here.

 

DSC_0279
Weather was absolutely perfect on this day so that was a plus.

 

DSC_0287
Another stall inside. I quickly hurried past this one so I didn’t accidentally order more 😛

Just making sure we didn’t miss any good stores before we made our way out.

If you do park under the Mall and forgot where you parked, this guide can help you. When you initially parked, the Mall takes a picture of your number plate which is then read and can be searched by this machine. I thought that was pretty decent and hadn’t seen anything like it here in Aus.

And that’s a wrap. Shopping completed.

    For those who caught the bus here, I have included the map below to help you find your way back to the city 🙂        

Bus 63 all the way back 🙂

Also, if you want to change the end destination from Seomyeon to something else, simply click ‘more options’ on the map and then enter in your new destination.

  1. Thanks for these comprehensive accounts! They make planning so much easier since I only have a couple of days there on my upcoming trip.

    1. Hi Anna,

      The subway line ends just after Haeundae Beach in Jangsan, so it isn’t possible by train.

      Below is the easiest way to get there from Seomyeon:

  2. Hi,

    I saw a Uniqlo and 8 Seconds sign in one of the buildings in your photo, but when I checked the store listings, it’s not there. There’s really a Uniqlo store? 😛

    1. Hi Danica,

      Those stores a definitely there. This outlet mall is quite new so I doubt store would already be closed. I visited a couple of weeks ago and both of those stores were open 🙂

        1. Hi Kitty,

          Yep, should be easy to get a taxi from the mall (I have done it on several occasions without a problem).

          If you can speak Korean that is great, if not I would have the address of your accommodation in Korean to show the taxi driver.
