There's absolutely nothing special about Ampang Point but yet, loads and loads of local Ampang residence occupy the place 24/7. The place is packed everyday, from morning till night.
Maybe because it is centrally located along Jalan Ampang. It is surrounded by all banks, shops, offices, utility companies. Basically, all the necessity are there to provide the people.
Inside, all the neccessary shops are there for us all, ranging from music, electrical, computer, clothes, The Body Shop, McDonald's, KFC, 1901, Delifrance, San Francisco Coffee, Newsagents, Printing, Money Changer, Bowling Alley, Pool/Snooker, Arcade, Food Court, Supermarket, Jewellers, Hairdressers, Bookshops and many others.
Outdoor parking at this place is a nightmare. However, I would definitely suggest the basement parking. It is far more easier and your vehicle will be a lot cooler than under the hot blazing sun outside.
If you're from Britain or have been there or lives / lived there, then you would know Tesco. Malaysians are in love with anything that's British. Sadly though, their attitudes are nothing like them, especially their style of driving. Haha...
For those who don't know Tesco, then this is a supermarket to shop for your provisions. It's one of the branches in Malaysia. It's big and if you buy any of the Tesco made proucts, then the price differences are huge than other brands or make.
The only badd thing about this outlet is that they do not have a covered car park, which makes your vehicle absolutely warm like in the oven under, after parking there for about an hour or two under the hot blazing sun.

Its where I normally do my shopping for the groceries. The prices are relatively lower then other branded deparmental store in Kuala Lumpur or those hypermarkets.
Bintang Supermarket is the major outlet comprising 4 levels of the Spectrum Shopping Complex.

I can say that this is the most exclusive department store in the whole of Ampang. In the groud floor / lobby of this building, you may fid a row of cafes, restaurants and a sandwich bar. You're able to drive your car up front to the lobby and have the option to a valet service.
They have a variety of shops that cater to all your needs. There aren't many shops around but it should be adequate. The finest supermarket in the country for shour groceries need without the hustle and bustle of population in Ampang.
It's a very convenient place as it's located in the center of Ampang and a relaxing place to shop and meeting up friends.
This is a shopping mall in Ampang. A bustling junction in between Ampang road and Ulu Kelang road. These areas have many shops from The Coffee Bean, Starbucks Coffee to Hometown Yong Tau Foo and many commercial buildings, banks and restaurants.
Ampang Point is the biggest up to now where it has the local favourite Mcdonald's and Kentucky Fried Chicken. Other than restaurants, it has departmental store together with other individual shops such as The England Optical, Guardian and many others.
Ampang's Megkudu area has several notable shops such as Joo Ngan's bicycle shop where cycling lovers can shop 'til they drop and an ethnic supermarket which sells mostly imported products where most of the customers were foreigners.
I seldom go to this plaza but I find its outlook a little different to show it here as another option if you want to know where to shop in Ampang area.
