We went here purely to get out of the heat in Langkawi, but it was quite interesting. I did think the penguins looked a bit cheesed off, but the fish and birds mostly looked quite happy. The otters but on a bit of a show for us, which was quite funny. There is a little café inside, which is good... More

If you enjoy watching penguins on a tropical island... This is your thing. I would think it is a good idea with your kids on a rainy day. Not worth the money without them.

I have visited this place many times. I would bring my family and friends to this place every time during my visits. It is well maintained. I wish that they could have more resting bench for visitors.

Not a must visit place but if you have many time and no place to go, then go ahead~ Entry ticket is RM30 per adult no time limit. Nearby there have Coco Valley Sdn Bhd and The Zon duty free shop for shopping and stock up. Small shopping mall - Cenang Mall is nearby as well~

Of course they do have something to cover.. But for birds type, they think, they trained its very well.. I like the penguins area.. I hope and expect they... More

Not a worthy attraction and full of hapless Chinese tourists who just get in your way and seem to yell instead of talking at a normal level. Way overpriced for what it is. I would not recommend you go unless it's free

My first time in a world class aquarium. There is no such place in india as far as I know. If you go at about 3 pm you will get to see the staff feeding the penguins and stingrays which is all quite a sight. Don't miss getting a selfie with the python. One should look to finish sightseeing in... More

Many years ago..when Underwater World opened, there were lots of underwater living were seen. But after the poisoning incident happened .. not much to see already and not worth with the pay valued. Note : the date of last visit is not corect as have to select one from it.
