River of Life, as beautiful as it name situated at Dataran Merdeka, Kuala Lumpur will be new attractions when tourist or even locals when to Kuala Lumpur. Under the ROL Project, the Sungai Gombak and Sungai Klang will be cleaned and rejuvenated as the Heritage and Commercial Center for Greater Kuala Lumpur which will increase the value of properties in the surrounding areas and boost the local economy as well as attract tourists, thus bringing benefits and increasing income to the population especially through support industries.


Currently, cleaning works are being carried out along 110km covering 8 rivers, namely Sungai Gombak, Sungai Batu, Sungai Jinjang, Sungai Keroh, Sungai Bunus, Ampang River, Sungai Klang and Keroyong River. When the ROL Project started in 2011, the river's water quality was at class III-IV (which was defined as unsafe for the touch of the body). This will change in 2020, where water quality will be improved to Class IIB (which is defined as safer for recreational use with touch). Can't wait for it!

But as you can see now, the ROL Project really have change the view of the river in Kuala Lumpur nowadays. From my view as I living in Kuala Lumpur for almost 9 years, the river totally had change from the place that people won't go before where the homeless will wondering around to the place that visitors will love to go. It's so beautiful nowadays especially during the night. And even during the day, the river looks cleaner and there is DBKL people to take care of it.

The best things about this ROL is there's also a song will play along with the beautiful flashing light. There is Star Wars songs or even the Malaysian classic song from Arwah Sudirman. It's fun to watch and relax with your family while you in here.


This great project by DBKL definitely has turn Kuala Lumpur into a beautiful place to visit during the night and the sidewalks has been more safer for pedestrians to walks during the night right? Hopefully this beauty will remains in the heart of Kuala Lumpur and we as the locals should encourage everyone to take care of it for the future.
