Pulau Lang Tengah

Pulau Lang Tengah is a small postcard island with only 3 resorts located halfway between Perhentian Island and Pulau Redang.

Melaka

Melaka (a.k.a. Malacca) is the capital of the Malaysian state of Malacca.
Traditionally, the spot where Melaka stands today was the center of Malaccan history. It was the capital of the Malaccan Sultanate and the center of the Malay world in the 15th and the 16th century before it fell to the Portuguese in 1511. Centuries of colonization by the Portuguese, Dutch and the British have shaped the architecture of the town.

How to get to Ampang Lookout Point
As there is no public transportation, you can only get there by car (taxi). From downtown it’s about a 30min -1h drive to get there depending on traffic. To safe money, you could take the LRT (Ampang Line) to Cempaka station and take the taxi from there. It’s about a 15min drive from there. However, it is recommended to use your own transport to get there.

Roadside food stalls / Pasar Malam

After the old Lookout Point was shut down in early 2012 (see information below), annew pasar malam type of area was established at the junction of Jalan Hulu Langat and Jalan Mulia 2/1, about 1km downhill from the closed Lookout Point. The stalls are open every day.
