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.
