This is a good time pass. Worth for money. Birds and underwater creatures adds a good collection of photos to your album.

Do not waste time and money to see this. Its very average and old. May be because we have seen the one in Singapore which is a lots better than this. Langkawi is so beautiful naturally that I feel we should not waste time in seeing this.

I think it is very expensive for the price RM30 for a local and RM40 for a foreigner. Other than the penguins there are actually not much to see. I have to say I have seen other Underwater World which are a lot more impressive in the past.

Underwater World well and truly exceeded our expectations. We were able to see flamingoes, mackaws and very cute penguins. It was a great way to spend a few hours out of the heat!

I recommend this... More

I agree with one of the other TA reviewers who said if you have been to just about any other aquarium anywhere else this will be a disappointment. Very small place it should not take more than 20 minutes. You can spend some more time getting pictures with the python but you probably have done that before too. Seriously especially... More
