“Good collection of marine life”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

Good for kids, this shows a big collection of different fish types. If a photography freak, make sure the settings are good to capture for aquarium as flash is not allowed.
There's a shopping center inside but I didn't find any place specific souvenier and other items were relatively costly for Langkawi perspective.
You can get yourself photographed and get that on the place's background

Absolutely worth seeing. Lots of very interesting fish, even pinquins(?!) and a beautiful garden with monkeys and birds.

“One time Visit”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

This place has a pretty decent collection of Fish, Penguins and other Aquatic creatures.Though not comparable to the Sentosa Under Water World, this place is enjoyable for a one time visit.

“The most depressing place I've seen”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

This waterworld was the most sad and depressing thing I've ever seen. Built in a massive industrial hall the place had almost nothing similar to the underwater world those things originally live in. It made me really really sad to visit that place! :(
