The aquarium is really good with many interesting exhibits. A bit pricey for foreigners. The whole thing lasts about an hour or so.

I like the place very much. It is one of the best aquariums I've ever seen and I saw quite a lot :) Plenty of interesting animals and fishes. One can easily spend hours there.

What I didn't like it's unfair treatment. As a foreigner I had to pay twice more than malaysians. It's very common in Malaysia and it's pure racism. They treat me differently only because I was born in another place and don't have malaysian ID. It is demeaning both for foreigners and malay people.

Skip the Petronas Towers and go Aquaria. 50Rm for tourists. There are all kinds of animals not just fish and sharks. Snakes, frogs, spiders, sea rats.. Didint see any food or drinks available so eat first because this one might take some time.

Finally made it this time on a Saturday afternoon. Our kid was under 3 so he got in for free which was a good start.

However, Saturday at 4 turned out to be not the best time to visit in my opinion. There were way too many people and as a result it was quite hot in some of the tighter corridors. Plus we couldn't really see some exhibits comfortably as there were too many people crowded around it such as the piranhas during feeding time. If you want a comfortable relaxing time then you're better off coming in much earlier or go during weekdays.

Otherwise, the Aquaria was pretty nifty. Lots of variety, good descriptions and a nice layout. The place also looked very well-maintained.

My kid loved most of it, every now and then he'd go 'mummy daddy look!' Lots of close-ups with the fish and other creatures, he absolutely loved the turtles.

Can we get rid of the fake diver mannequin in the aquarium though?

All in all, it was great, just if you plan to go weekends, go in the morning it should be better :p
