Another good aquarium--like Aquaria KLCC. Not as big as some I've been to in the US, but still worth the time and price.

the under water world is nice place to visit but the ticket is expensive to malaysian. this is a good chance to bring child to know more about the under water animals especially the penguins but the expensive entre ticket may be one of the consideration for the parent who have more than 3 kids.

Interesting place. Good place to see some of the local marine life. Also a good place to get some duty free shopping done. And at a reasonable price.

We had a walk round, it killed an hour, wasn't the best aquarium we have ever been too, but was ok. Some of the tanks were dirty and the black tip reef sharks looked like they had teeth pulled out, which was disappointing. Only cost 30rm each, so was ok for the money we paid.

You get close to the animals which is good, but it's quite small and yet a bit difficult to navigate. All right price/value though
