Underwater World Langkawi
Review & 2024 Ticket Prices

Underwater World Langkawi is located in a large metal building on a cliff at the far end of Pantai Cenang on the beautiful island of Langkawi.

After a morning of sunbathing on the beach you may want to visit here to enjoy the deliciously cool air-conditioning,

Is it worth visiting? Here's my opinion.

Rainforest Section of Underwater World Langkawi

It is divided up into various sections. 

The first part is the Tropical Rainforest which I felt was rather disappointing. In a country which is full of real tropical rainforests, it seems a bit weird to try to create an indoor one. There were some nice parrots and pheasants here but not much else of interest apart from the scary looking snapping turtles. The bite of these turtles is more forceful than an alligator so you do not want to get too close.

The highlights for me were the marine and fresh water aquariums and the 'penguinariums' with a 'walk through tunnel'.

The large fish tanks with the sharks, groupers, rays and so on were OK but I preferred some of the smaller aquaria which had better lighting and more interesting varieties such as jelly fish, angel fish, puffer fish and various freshwater species.

There are two penguinariums, one for African Penguins and the other for Rockhopper Penguins. The seal tanks are also good but not very spacious.

Elsewhere there are coral and seashell displays and a reptilian section.

There is a café and souvenir shop area in the middle section of Underwater World and then, to exit the building, you have to go through a shopping area selling dried seafood, traditional Chinese medicines, duty-free chocolates, gifts and much more.

Is it worth visiting? In my opinion, yes. There are similar (and better) oceanariums elsewhere such as Aquaria in KL but overall I think Underwater World Langkawi is a good place to spend an hour or more. 

Besides, if nobody visits what would happen to those poor creatures?
