TheLookout point along on the hills of Ampan at the eastern edge of the city offers a magnificent views over the entire city with a few roadside food stalls after the closure of the former restaurant and lookout area.

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.
