Underwater World - Review

Spread over 6.2 acres on a alluring beach of Patai Cenang, Underwater world Langkawi, also known as UWL is a huge freshwater aquarium in Asia. It is a home to 4000 varieties of fish and different 500 species displayed in more than 100 tanks.

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. There is also a representation of various ecosystems like tropical rainforests, temperate and sub-Antarctic.  Underwater penguin tunnel is a great way to observe swimming penguins.

The shopping centre and cafe are also a good pastime on your visit.

Underwater World, Langkawi Island Reviews

  • Great place for kids... In case you are traveling with family and need some time for shopping you may send the kids for the adventure inside while you can spend the time in the duty free shops around... Since we had all small kids we decided to take the trip... Spent an hour inside and a couple more shopping outside could've saved time by splitting the group... 😊

  • The penguin feedings were fun. The seal seemed lonely. Lots of tanks full of interesting fish. They all seemed well taken care of. Good for a couple hours of air conditioned relaxing.

  • 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)

  • Family friendly. If you buy ticket online, you need to wait 24hours to redeem. Better walk in/ buy from agent(discount). There is also a place where you can feel the typhoon/earthquake (different charge). Duty free shop available

  • Lovely place and keeps the kids as well as adults also busy watching and admiring the natures beauty. Must visit place. Very well maintained and clean.
