When it was first opened, it was one of the very few aquariums in South East Asia. For some, it became one of the main reasons to visit Langkawi. After many years, it is starting to look faded.

We went there today and really enjoyed it. The aquariums are very good & there is plenty to see. They also have a couple of interactive things & a virtual movie area which was pretty cool.

There's a wide selection of fish and amphibians on display. I'd rate it more highly but the tanks they have for the seals and penguins in particular are completely inappropriate for the needs of the animals.

This attraction is very popular, and is suitable for children and adults. There are many types of sea species available, and children and adults will be excited and thrilled to see the different types of sea species.
