Where should I go shopping in Los Angeles, It’s “Desert Hills Premium Outlets”

This time, I would like to introduce “Desert Hills Premium Outlets”, an outlet mall located in California, U.S.A.

“Desert Hills Premium Outlets”,

an big big outlet mall located in the desert.

If you come to Los Angeles, this is definitely the place to go shopping.

The reason for this is because:

Desert Hills Premium Outlets is one of the largest outlet malls in the U.S., with many brands that are not available at other outlets.

 Here’s have famous brand such as “Gucci” and “Burberry.”

Honestly, it is the best mall where you can buy what you want at a reasonable price.

Coach and Kate Spade have outlet products for outlet malls,

but Gucci and other brands are not outlet products but old year’s models and regular store items at a discount price.

That’s “Awesome” Isn’t it?

It is like the picture shows that they carry a crazy amount of brands.


It is a bit far from LA, so a car is a must. It takes about 1.5 hours by car. If there is traffic, it will take a couple of hours.

Yellow Cabs and Uber are quite expensive for that drive miles, so rent a car.

You can rent a car at airports in the U.S., and if you are in trouble or confusion, just I recommend “Enterprise Rent a Car” at the URL below. Reason being, it’s cheap! They have well managed insurance, etc., so they will take care of any problems you may have. It is a so-called major company, so you can rest assured.
