Underwater World Langkawi

Ben van Wijnen


Underwater World - Langkawi

Underwater World - the largest aquarium of Malaysia and it's one of the largest marine and fresh water aquaria in South East Asia. Since the start of its operation, it has become one of the must visit tourist destinations in Langkawi and has attracted a large number of foreign as well as local tourists.

The concept and theme of Underwater World Langkawi are geared towards Knowledge, Education and Entertainment. It is built to raise awareness on the importance of conserving our precious aquatic life forms, thus creating understanding of the deep and inseparable bond between man and nature.
 

The complex is divided into three sections: Tropical Rainforest, Temperate and Sub-Antarctic. The Sub-Antarctic was probably the most popular section – the ‘penguin-arium’ houses cute little rockhopper and black-footed penguins that cause quite a few people to crowd around the exhibit to get a good look.

Other highlights of the tourist-friendly Underwater World include an Educational Resource Centre, a cafeteria and a three-dimensional (3D) theatre – be sure to watch the short movie about Michael, a little prehistoric fish and his life before becoming a fossil. Lastly there’s a giant walk-through six million litre underwater tunnel tank which houses an extensive number of fish including sharks, giant stingrays and green turtles.

 

The walk through the 8–meter underwater penguin Tunnel will enable visitors to observe the Blackfooted (African) penguins swimming around in an environment very similar to their natural environment. This area is fully equipped with a life support system that adheres to international standards.

The 34,701 square foot oceanarium is located adjacent to a shopping centre and the Neptune Café. Visitors are thus provided with a one-stop shopping, eating and entertainment package, all of which are available within one area.
A new building (with 60,000 sq. ft built-up area) which displays Tropical Rainforest, Temperate and Sub-Antarctic Ecosystems, and info theatre with a 200-seating capacity has been opened opened to the public. The Sub-Antarctic Ecosystem Display includes a spectacular “penguinarium” with an underwater tunnel for visitors to view swimming penguins.

The coral section has an underwater garden with an explosion of delightful colours. It is part of the living treasures of the ocean’s delicate ecosystem. Giant Clams, Damsels, Wrasses and other types of coral provide visitors with a glimpse of the symbiotic relationship that exists among the inhabitants of the coral reefs.
