Aquaria KLCC

Aquaria KLCC is an international standard aquarium attraction of the sort where you ride on a travelator through a glass tunnel while sharks, rays and other marine creatures glide by.

The route through the aquarium takes you past different zones such as the Evolution Zone with piranhas, the Riverbank Jungle and Otter Den, the shipwreck, deep forest, mangrove creatures and the Living Ocean.

Review Verdict

This is the best aquarium in Malaysia and is priced accordingly. Well worth a visit but rather expensive in my opinion. For example the child rate for non-Malaysians is more expensive than Osaka’s aquarium, the world’s biggest. Shouldn’t Malaysia be cheaper than Japan?

If you love aquariums but cannot afford these prices you could take the family to Pusat Ikan Hiasan in Port Dickson instead. It is much smaller and does not have sharks but it’s free!
