We made sure we went to the Underwater World Langkawi so we could see all the animal feeding. We're glad we did as they explained what they are doing and why. The seals looked like they were enjoying themselves and some of things they do, are to check on the animal's health. The Penguins were good fun to watch as... More

Surprised by the diversity of animals they had - two different kinds of penguins, and a whole host of different type of fish. Sad to see the seals had so little space to swim in as they both looked kinda sad. Wouldn't go here if you are an animal lover, you might get a little sad. Think this attraction is... More

This is very much similar to one in Singapore. I would say Singapore one is better than this. They have many varieties but nothing out of the world. We were lucky to be during feeding session but there was nothing special about it.

But still kids will always enjoy some marine creatures interactions. Make sure you don't do the 5d cinema, it's really bad.

A plethora of underwater choices and fish species on display here. Kids have a wonderful time exploring fishes, crabs, jellyfish and lobsters. The shark feeding sessions are amazing.
