After nearly a decade, Ampang Lookout Point set to reopen next year


THE Ampang Lookout Point in Bukit Ampang (ALOP), Hulu Langat, which has been closed for more than 10 years, is set to reopen to the public next year.

The popular tourist attraction will be redeveloped through a joint effort between the Selangor government and private entity Pearl Holiday Travel & Tour Sdn Bhd.

Selangor tourism, environment, green technology and Orang Asli affairs committee chairman Hee Loy Sian said the redevelopment plans would also include slope stabilisation works by the company.

The spot was well known for its panoramic views of the Kuala Lumpur skyline, but was left vacant since 2012 due to soil erosion and safety concerns.

"The redevelopment will be done in four phases and include a food and beverage area, event space, camping-based accommodation (glamping) and caravans.

"This will be a revenue sharing venture where 3% of the revenue once it is operational will go to the state government," he said during the project announcement at the Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah (SUK) building on Thursday (June 15).

Hee said the targeted date to reopen phase one of ALOP was July 1, 2024.

Pearl Holiday executive director Loo Yung Wai believed the reopening would be much anticipated.

"The draw factor is the amazing views and the proximity to Kuala Lumpur.

"We also hope to bring in recognisable names in the Malaysian street food scene all under one roof."

Also present during the announcement was Tourism Selangor Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Azrul Shah Mohamad and Kajang Municipal Council (MPKj) president Najmuddin Jemain.
