This attraction is an easy walk from the Meritus resort and is certainly worth a visit with many marine species to view. There is also a virtual reality experience which was quite fun and a maze which is way too easy but can be done twice with different lighting effects.

You will get to see the giant arapaima and the alligator gar fish. Besides there is also the nautilus which is very interesting to see. Besides there was also 2 very big grouper and rays. Though the tickets are quite expensive, but its worth a visit if you're a marine life enthusiast.

Nothing much to see, except the common penguins, and sharks that you'd expect at any aquarium, I wish there was more activities to do.

Like any underwater world this meets your expectation . As you make your way through you will come across typhoon experience counter but then you are told you will have to pay cash at the entrance , no ATM inside , they don't accept credit/ debit cards .. no other option .. once you've entered the underwater world only way...

Since I'd missed the KL aquaria, i decided to take in the one in Langkawi. Although well stocked with fauna and included a lovely section on jelly fish, it was definitely not worth the money we paid to gain entry. The penguins were cute, but it was heartbreaking to see how little space they had out of their natural habitat..

A good place for kids and adults, enjoyed the trip, quite educational, make sure you check out the timing for feeding the Penguins, Furseal, and Tunnel Tank it will be more enjoyable especially for the kids. Loved it.

There were some great displays and I enjoyed my walk around. However, the information side of things was very basic for the most part. For me I would have liked more. There was also a section looking at past worlds that was as an extra cost. Granted it was not a great deal of money but it was not clear... More

Bit expensive for going in but very good especially when they were feeding the seals and penguins. The only thing is there are 2 more attractions inside which you have to buy further tickets for so we did not bother.
