Nothing really special here, quite small. Unless you have too much time on hand or are with children, you can give it a miss as the ticket price is quite steep.

Wonderful experience with various corals, reefs, fish, penguin n sea lions. Once u exit the area, u vl b automatically enter the duty free zone. Price is expensive. U get the duty free items in kuah town shops cheaper.

Rm40 for entry. Nothing fantastic for me. Just a couple of captive sea creatures/ animals for us tourists to see. Enjoyed only seeing the penguins. Otherwise was rather boring and sad. Can give it a miss, was done im 15mins. Do go for the real wildlife that langkawi has to offer instead.

I don't like aquariums. They are over priced, the sound of screaming children echoes off the walls, the animals seem bored and depressed (I would be too) and the whole thing is very gimmicky and silly. This aquarium is no exception.

Very nice but very limited, a good one hour walk watching some of the best of sea life. Not sure if its worth the money. Go if you have nothing better to do.

This place was average and only worth if its a family Trip with kids. else, one can totally give a miss to this and enjoy the beautiful beaches at langkawi! There are better Aquariums/ underwater world in Asia Itself.

As compare to others aquarium around Asia this would consider small and with only very few marine. But it is very educational and I believe the company is trying to do some upgrading during my visit. Remember to switch off the flash at the penguin and seal corner believe if everyone do a part the place could be worth visiting... More

Bigger and more extensive range of exhibits than we expected. Teenage kids really enjoyed it too. Rainforest area and even penguins! Good 'wreck' aquarium with sharks, rays etc going over your head.

Was a friendly place and good price for what was there. Loved the tropical section. The only bit i didn't like was penguins being kept completely away from natural light. Seems a shame for them although they seemed pretty happy.
