Ampang Jaya Overview

Ampang Jaya

Selangor, Malaysia

PropSocial's Review





Ampang Jaya is a small residential area located within the thriving township of Ampang, which is host to some of the city’s favourite hangout spots. While neighbouring the lofty city centre, Ampang Jaya is comparitively more laidback as compared to its neighbours.

The accommodations offered in this area consists mainly of rather old and tired single storey terrace houses, while commerce within the neighbourhood is fairly non-existent except for a single row of shophouses.

New developments within Ampang Jaya itself is non-existent as compared to the city centre of Kuala Lumpur where the bulk of new developments are concentrated. There are however many houses and low cost flats within Ampang Jaya which are highly affordable to the lower middle and middle income group.

Getting to Ampang Jaya proves to be a daily struggle during peak hours, where getting stuck in the after work hours gridlock can be quite unbearable; however with the construction of the Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway, travellers have mentioned that getting home is a much easier process now.
