Lovely aquarium, with many different species of aquatic life (as well as penguins!). Even has sharks! Very informative. In good location, many restaurants and shops nearby. A must-see in Langkawi.

At first thought was a small place but we were wrong. It was value for money. We got a 10% discount using a promotion booklet available at the counter. The facilitiy although is a bit old but we have seen many nice fishes.
