Bit of fun

Interesting place. Quite well organised. Bit of a constricted tank for the seals. Easy to spend a couple of hours here. Exit through the gift shop of course.

Someone said a great place for nature lovers. Haha nature lovers wouldn't go to a place where they animals from the wild. Extra fee if you're not Malay is a bit much as the ticket is already expensive.

Quite a few animals here and was nice to see the penguins being fed however was a little disappointed at the amount of animals there considering it's advertised as being a large wildlife place. I feel a bit too expensive for what is there.

The collection of species, the variety, the spread of the place and the knowledge you can get as a nature enthusiast is great.

Visited this place again as I never gonna miss it again as I did last time. Not as great as as some international aquariums but as good for the locals to see them. The feeding time is always waited by all especially the kids. Good range of marine life inside. Worth a visit.

Been twice now 3 years apart and enjoyed it both times, I spent a lot of time behind my camera lens as that is what I love to do. Something to do, but if you miss it I suppose its no loss. We went through with a lot of time on our hands to relax.

We visit almost everywhere the local aquarium because we love to watch the sea creatures. Normally every aquarium has about the same spiecies, but this one had some spiecies we've never seen before. Best time to go is in the afternoon when it's feeding time. Unfortunately they only give the explanation in malay language. Ticket is 43rm, but you can... More

This has quite a high entry fee given the variety of underwater life. The tanks also looked quite barren in comparison.

Price of ticket is too high and nothing to see special. Its not actually a underwater world, its just like a aquarium with a bunch of fish and penguins. There are two places of simulation and you need to pay for each one. This place is actually for kids and i don't recommend anyone to go there.
