At RM38 per ticket my only complaint is that this was a little small. We spent 40 minutes in there and that involved taking photos of just about everything too. Other than that, everything was great. There is a huge variety of exotic marine life, sharks, penguins, seals with some description text in certain areas. I rate it average as it was pretty much what I expected. For anyone who has seen similar aquariums I wouldn’t feel visiting this is an absolute must. But if having lazy time in the immediate area this is a good look.

For a rainy day attraction in Langkawi this is defiantly worth considering. Birds Fish Penguins and some small monkeys easy to walk around and kill an hour or so.

The one in Singapore is much better. Its OK to give this a miss. Time can be spent on other sights. Do your shopping outside the underwater world though. You may get some good bargains.
