Underwater World Langkawi
Good for kids
What we say:
Underwater World has more than 100 specially designed tanks and over 500 species of animals and sea creatures.
The aquarium is divided into sections - tropical rainforest, temperate and sub-Antarctic (where the penguins live), temperate, fresh water and coral.
There is also a walk-through underwater tunnel tank that is home to sharks, giant stingrays and green turtles.
This is more than a tourist attraction as Underwater World has an ongoing research program in place. This is the only place in Malaysia where rockhopper penguins have been successfully bred in captivity.
There are also educational programs for children through to research professionals.
