#2 of 20 in Zoos & Aquariums in Malaysia
Head to Underwater World Langkawi, one of the largest marine and freshwater aquariums in Southeast Asia. Walk through the 15 m (49 ft) underwater tunnel and see magnificent sea creatures of all shapes and sizes swimming right over your head. Don't miss the penguinarium, either, where another underwater tunnel allows you to view the little critters as they swim. A 200-seat theater shows educational films about animal and plant life and the importance of conservation projects. The aquarium's overall emphasis on ecological education enhances your visit, informing you about the threats facing its inhabitants and constructive efforts to counter them.

    Quite a great place if you manage to catch the feeding times. It's recommended to go at lunch time for this. They house many exotic geckos, a few birds, many penguins, and a lot of marine life. The penguin display is especially great as you get to walk under the aquarium. Entrance fees is 46 for foreigners and 36 for locals. You can go through the entire display casually within an hour. There's Marry Brown's and a cafeteria inside.

    Great place to go if it's raining or you've had too much sun. Very cheap to get in (bear in mind that there are more paid options upstairs). It has a nice variety of animals. They'll take your picture and sell you mugs/cards/magnets later. I didn't give a 5 because the ratio of animal sites and selling food/accessories wasn't even or balanced right. They have set it up in such a way to get the most out of you instead of experiencing the animals properly. Also their VR should be more about animals or sea creatures. Not Ghost or Dinosaurs. Having said that, it was a super funny experience to have and see others have!

    Worth a visit if you need a break from the sun or rain. Facility is looking tired. Good display of a variety of marine life. Our 4 year old daughter loved it.

    Good price, nice place to hide from the heat, penguins are funny to observe, there are some fishes. Also go up and enjoy the illusion room. Especially the bridge. The visual effects make you feel unreal

    Marine fishes mostly but there are exotic geckos, salamander, albino frogs and fresh water fish too. Entry fee is RM 46.00 but it is worthwhile. Additional fee of RM 18.00 if you want to enter interactive & panoramic world. There are only 2 types of seahorses on display. The dragon-like seahorses are no longer there. Do not use camera flash here.

Where to stay in Langkawi

Langkawi Island offers by far the greatest number of accommodation optionsĀ out of all 104 isles in the archipelago. Look for affordable and comfortable rooms in Kuah and the southwestern peninsula, where inexpensive hotels, hostels, and rental apartments draw many budget visitors. For a luxury experience, head to the surrounding islands, where private resorts charge high prices for more amenities and larger rooms.
