Well, it was a fair experience .. I was upset and I was not amazed .. If you don't have more interesting things to do, you may visit the underwater park. Some nice marine life that you will see. You know what, do it if you if you have kids only. Couple and group of guys, forget about it.

Overrated by any standard particularly those who have seen the aquarium at Dubai mall... Worth a visit only for checking in the box...

Right in the main tourist area of Langkawi, this aquarium is a lovely way to spend an hour. The rockhopper penguins are delightful.

We came here because we did not have much to do in Langkawi. Before we could start enjoying it the visit finished. We were surprised to see that the whole visit did not even take half an hour. The souvenir shop was quite pricey which is a negative point as to make the visit memorable visitors should be encouraged to... More

The penguin underwater experience is incredible. We had the penguins following our fingers for such a long time... they had so much fun. The rest of the underwater world was fantastic - it is not big and can be done in about 60-90 minutes, but it is still a lovely place.
