Underwater World, Langkawi Island Reviews

  • 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.

  • The aqua animal are quite unique. If you bring your infant, they will be happy to see all the animal. Especially the cute penguin. The seal in the beginning also quite entertain to see. 10/10 will come again.

  • A bit expensive but not worth to price. Good fishes and eels. Way takes you to mall. It is good to explore if you have time in cenang beach

  • Although I enjoyed my time wondering through the displays I did feel sad for the animals, especially the penguins, trapped in the run-down tanks and displays. The place is well passed its prime with what appears to be the absolute minimum spent on maintenance. Lots of interesting displays but if you have any empathy for the animals, you may be disappointed.
