It is definitely worth visiting. The place is very well maintained and has an amazing variety of sea creatures. Loved the penguins. When we clicked pictures, some penguins flocked around as if posing for us. They sure love attention. There are so many different species of fish and sea life there. Loved the leopard whipray, barracuda, the giant spider crab... More

In our tour to Langkawi, we got a chance of going to the Underwater World. On our entrance, the staff was good who welcomed us with smile. Tickets were reasonable for foreigners and much cheaper for natives off course. There we found nice collection of water animals. Seeing the sharks, jelly fishes, sea horses was a good experience, but the... More

I think some of the earlier reviews are a little unfair. We easily spent a couple of hours in here with a teenager and there was plenty to see. For an adult price of £7.40 I don't think it was overpriced especially taking into account the upkeep of the animals. Some of the displays were not easy to look into... More

nicely built with a wide variety of creatures both land and sea, right from lizards to penguins to sea creatures. But a little overpriced i think.

Not many fish species there. Most of the fishes are grey in colour. Very dull, very few colourful fishes. Nothing much impressive other than penguins. The feeding time 2-3pm everyday.
