This is Malaysia's largest aquarium. Very interesting & educational. Great place to visit & can spend couple of hours. For self-drive, parking can be a bit of hassle cos limited space. We have to wait quite some time b4 managed to get an empty lot.

Besides, there was also the 6-D experience with extra payment, quite interesting, readied to get wet (but... More

Nice aquarium with so many fishes and other animals. It was nice activity for one hot afternoon. I spent there more than two hours. It is worth it if you get there on feeding times between 2 and 3 pm. I don't remember morning feeding times.

Though comparing to Aquaria KLCC in Kuala Lumpur and other Sea Life Aquarium this was nothing but I did have a good time visiting. Saw a few animals for the first time including Common Marmosets, an Alligator Snapping Turtle and some marine lives. We managed to catch a diver feeding fish in the viewing tank. In the last section there... More

Have you watch 'Happy Feet"? Can you remember their character? Here, in Underwater World you able to see those penguins lying around in the man-made habitats right in front your eyes....plus many more species in the sea that you may not have seen before or you don't even know that they exist! Your children going to love it!

A must go place while you are in langkavi. A lot of different species of underwater creatures. Best thing for me was penguins. I never got to see penguins in any of the underwater places. Sea horses, octopus etc. were also good to see
