I always like aquarium, so this is the only place I planned to visit for my trip. Not too may people on a Wednesday afternoon and to get away from the heat.

This is my first underwater world Ive ever visit and to me it is quite disappointing. For Malaysian, the fee is RM30 per person. Its not really underwater, more like underground. Not many species there and the building's design was quite old (it is an old building). Some of the animals inside there are gecko, birds, fish, penguins, seals, jelly... More

My son (5) and I visited this just after lunch and most of it was air conditioned so a great visit when only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun. On a serious note it was very well stocked and presented and like the Wildlife Park extremely interesting for both us.

Located at Cenang Beach, Langkawi this attraction is good value at just 40 MYR per adult to enter. Excellent displays with many aquariums. Like many tourist venues you have to run the gauntlet of the souvenir shop. Good place to spend a couple of hours.

I have seen, many of these aquarium. Santosa Island in singapore, one in Chicago. But, this one is equivalent only in cost. It has quite a few of good sea attractions and is very small.

It is a great place for curious kids...more than the penguins or the sharks, the small, rare fishes were the main attraction. There is a huge variety of these... the dutyfree shop near the exit is a great place to shop for chocolates...

A little too pricy for what was in display. A not-too-bad collection of corals though. One part of it was closed for renovation, but you can't see if it was huge or just a small corner. Again, kids' stuff!

A great experience of kids to see all these underwater species... shark, sea bus, jellyfish, penguin, wheals and other fish. Though the place can be made more informative and attractive, still it was a great place to visit in Langkawi.
