Underwater World Langkawi, Langkawi

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.

  • Awesome place! Loved it! For the price of entry, great way to spend a fantastic 3 hours with the kids. May not compare to other aquariums of similar size around the world - but impressive nonetheless and highly recommended. Both adults and kids will have fun, though I wish they had more food options inside. Not a major issue as lots of food available for cheap outside.
  • Didn't recover. Underwater World was really awesome a few years ago before the heinous act by someone that had killed most of the animals there. It seems like it never got pass that - The displays are less than what it used to have, the animals seems more desperate and slickly, and you feel like you're in a zoo and not a sanctuary. Dunno what how else for them to grow, other than having an injection of investment and a good round of marketing.
  • Penguins are the main attractions. You can find sharks, along with other sea creatures too, while you pass under the big aquarium. Holding reptiles like Python and lizards can be exciting too. Well maintained. Definitely a visit is worthed..
  • It was a very good experience. Many different and interesting species of fish, reptiles and birds on display. The exhibits allowed us to get up close and personal with some of the animals.
  • It is truly amazing experience to see the undersea world. The key attractions include: Penguins, Sharks, sea turtles, sting rays, variety of eels. Spider crab is a must see. It's enormous size is something rare to see. A must visit place It is better to book tickets online as counter tickets are expensive. Parking is too costly.

Where to stay in Langkawi

Langkawi Island offers by far the greatest number of accommodation options 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.
