Came here when I first arrived in Langkawi. I wasn't expecting much from this aquarium but after 2 minutes of walking around I thought it was brilliant. There is so much to see inside and out. I loved the Penguins there were so many of them in huge tanks and you could tell they were extremely well looked after. Don't... More

The tickets are cheap and we went at the right timing. We reach when the feeding times were about to start so we were able to catch every single one of the feeding.

If with kids, then please visit this place. Not much to do here. There are many variety of animals. The feeding show is around 2 p.m. So it better if one visits around this time. This place is good to go only if with kids. Otherwise can be skipped.

Visited on a whim during our honeymoon. Mostly your typical aquarium, but cool to see some fish, birds, etc that are native to southeast Asia. The place was larger than we expected and probably takes 1-1.5 hours to see everything. They bunch the seal and penguin feedings together, which takes about 30-45 minutes altogether. Good to check out if you... More

This attraction is an easy walk from the Meritus resort and is certainly worth a visit with many marine species to view. There is also a virtual reality experience which was quite fun and a maze which is way too easy but can be done twice with different lighting effects.

You will get to see the giant arapaima and the alligator gar fish. Besides there is also the nautilus which is very interesting to see. Besides there was also 2 very big grouper and rays. Though the tickets are quite expensive, but its worth a visit if you're a marine life enthusiast.

Nothing much to see, except the common penguins, and sharks that you'd expect at any aquarium, I wish there was more activities to do.

Like any underwater world this meets your expectation . As you make your way through you will come across typhoon experience counter but then you are told you will have to pay cash at the entrance , no ATM inside , they don't accept credit/ debit cards .. no other option .. once you've entered the underwater world only way...

Since I'd missed the KL aquaria, i decided to take in the one in Langkawi. Although well stocked with fauna and included a lovely section on jelly fish, it was definitely not worth the money we paid to gain entry. The penguins were cute, but it was heartbreaking to see how little space they had out of their natural habitat..
