We came in a group but the staff at the counter couldnt assist, or they were quite confused of our question. If you do not come at the feeding time, most probably it will take you about 30mins (max) to explore the place. We are able to meet the penguins feeding time, unfortunately the playback recorder only explain (the information... More

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.

What's interesting to me were the huge fish (if caught can eat for 1 week by my family) and the cute penguins. Yah penguins at Langkawi! 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
