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

Housed in an unimpressive building, most of it is nothing more than a series of tanks with different species of fish or amphibians in them. A bit like visiting a fish shop, really, just with more exotic stuff. Certainly there were some interesting things here and there, like ONE starfish in a little tank, a few giant spider crabs in...

We visited the world of fishes and marine life. It was a little disappointing to be honest but we still had a interesting time it was near our hotel. But worth seeing to learn about the sea and the life within it

If you compare it with similar places in Singapore or Thailand, it may not be very exciting. But it has all the usual suspects (Penguins, Sea Lions etc.) present for your entertainment. Good for spending some time while in Langkawi as there are not many places to visit.

The place is good if you haven’t been to an underwater world before. The Penguins and sea lions were good, but other than that, there is nothing special. The place is too small considering the fee RM40/person. One can totally give it a miss and instead visit the Aquarium in Singapore (if Singapore is part of your trip)

Per entry is RM30/person - totally not worth it. The place is nice, you can see unusual animal here. But for RM30, I am expecting more. It is overpriced I think.

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.
