Kids will love this place! There are many species of aquatic animals and also reptiles. There are also a few species of Penguins. For me the entrance fee are quite reasonable.

This is located in a most happening place of Langkawi. The sea species are very beautiful and the places is very neatly maintained. However, I believe the Singapore one is better than this. But if you are in Langkawi, you should pay a visit. There are lot of options to eat outside the waterworld....

PROS: It was ok. It will cater more for kidson a school tour. CONS: most of those in display are a replica of the real thing (eg. bones, other sea life) . The only real stuff you see is small fishes
