An octopus. A large one. That made it an unique experience. Although tanks are on the small side and probably not as nice for the animals and fish as in other places, it makes it very easy for visitors to get to experience these wonders of the underwater world.

Excellent collection of fishes. Penguin show is an added attraction. They have the show at 11 AM everyday so plan accordingly to catch the show. Also, don't miss the Typhoon show, just near the cafetaria. Just outside is the duty free departmental store for shopping.

Pretty pricey entry fee, but the exhibits are decent enough. Many types of underwater specimens on display, as well as penguins! Information on each species is easily found, although sometimes grammatically incorrect. The exit links directly to the Zon Duty Free Shop. Many souvenirs available. Good place for family, but please avoid using flash photgraphy!

Though slightly expensive (RM43), this place provides one of the best experiences in marine ecosystem in this part of the country. The lighting, the explanation, the creatures, the ambiance are all very good. Keep around 120 to 180 minutes for this place, you'll really enjoy this place.

It's not quite as sophisticated as some of the aquaria in highly developed countries, but it is pretty amazing what they have put together in this small tropical town. What is truly astonishing is to see the penguins so far from Antarctica!

Had a few hours on a rainy afternoon to kill before meeting up with some friends so we went to Underwater World. We weren't sure what to expect but were completely surprised! The fish tanks were superb! We had been to other aquariums but we were taken aback by the variety and nature of the tanks. There were so many... More

Although it rated as one of the top 10 must visit tourist spot at Langkawi, this place is not full of surprise, kids may like it especially the seal and penguin area but it need to improve on maintaining the cleanliness, as well as variety of sea creature,there was bad animal odor in this area.
