This is the largest aquarium in Malaysia and the visitors can observe the animals, birds and inhabitants or the Sub-Antarctic, temperate, tropical rainforest regions.
A gigantic hexagonal tank that can accommodate 600,000 liters of sea water is a huge attraction. Sharks, stingrays and other sea creatures can be observed from the laminated glass tunnel.

Underwater World, Langkawi Island Reviews
Let's be honest here folks, if you've been to aquariums that are bigger like Singapore or Australia, this aquarium is much smaller compare to them but who says that smaller places can't packed with 100% fun? Here, you're able to see tropical fishes that are not necessary AVAILABLE in foreign countries. Places are clean, sea creatures are in a great shape, seats available in almost every sections you can find, activities such as feeding and explaining types of animals are available too and there's even a fast food corner right before you enter the ocean fishes. Anyone who visits Langkawi should try and go for this, you wouldn't regret it in anyway possible. (Unless you're not interested in wild life then go figures)
Quite nice and laid back aquarium. Don't set your hopes too high ans enjoy it for what it is. We brought our 10-month old baby with us in a stroller and she absolutely loved it! I definitely reccommend it.
It's just an average place. Nothing to write home about. The underwater place is Singapore is way better. The tickets are over priced. The place is not very clean. The underwater tunnel isn't very long as posted on the website. will not be going there again. The souvenir shop at the end of the aquarium is good. They are not overpriced and the variety is pretty good
My family and I were pleasantly surprised by how good the exhibits are here. The variety is stunning and unique. The health of all animals were superb and there were very few closed exhibits considering the size of this place. The notably rare and unusual exhibits were humongous groupers, a variety of moray eels, live king crab, penguins, a seal, huge stingray, pinecone fish, a giant snapping turtle, octopi and much more. The tank exhibits were all beautiful. For the price you pay, you are getting a much better experience than other aquariums in Malaysia. Underwater World Langkawi is undoubtedly the best in the country.
The best aquarium I have been to. Although I went there during public holiday but it was not as crowded as I expected. However most of the customers still use flash when taking photo even though there are signs telling them not to.
