Aquaria Tips (14)

Good but expensive aquarium

KL's aquarium is situated under the KLCC conference centre, and is easily reached from KLCC LRT via the underground passage from Suria KLCC mall. It is quite large, over a couple of floors, and has quite a few different habitats. The main highlight is the 90m travelling walkway which passes under the main tank, allowing you to see sharks, rays and turtles up close. My favourite exhibit was that providing advice on how not to be eaten by piranha - apparently you shouldn't take raw meat with you when you swim.

It's quite expensive at RM46 for Malaysians and RM64 for foreigners. For that you'll get a couple of hours of entertainment, and I would imagine a lot more if you have children. They'll probably want to go through the shark tunnel a few times! At the end, there is a souvenir shop, some currently in part broken interactive exhibits called labs (meant to encourage kids to examine environmental issues, which is nice), and a Holodeck (green screen video of you reacting to fake animals, from what I could see).

Adventurous and rich people can book events such as swimming with the sharks or even an underwater marriage proposal ceremony

I've marked it down a fair bit, as while it is enjoyable, it costs an awful lot. It must be in the 10 most expensive museums in Malaysia.

Aquaria--Just lovely

This place is just lovely! Though the variety of sea creatures is more limited than that of Singapore's Underwater World, I enjoyed this place much more because it is less crowded. You can truly take your time wandering around the oceanarium. The tunnel is yours alone, no rush whatsoever. It was really good. =)

Entrance is RM 45 for adults, RM 35 for kids, and RM 25 for seniors. Worth every ringgit.

Sharks, stingrays and lots of fishes - that's what you'll get by visiting Aquaria, the aquarium right next to the Twin Towers.
To be honest it's a worse copy of Underwater World in neighbour Singapore, except that there are less space and no pink dolphin show in KL. But for those who don't have a possibility to go south I would recommened a visit to Aquaria.

I was a bit unlucky during my visit, as I made it at the same time as all school kids in the whole Malaysia. The place was crowded by young and screaming kids, and I have to admit I lacked a piece of calmness every now and then.... :)

There are lots of smaller aquariums with all kind of fishes and other sea animals, but the main attraction at Aquaria is by far the tunnel. Standing on a moving tape the visitors are transported around in a huge tunnel, with sharks and stingrays swimming above, and around. Suddently having a 2,5 meter shark just a few decimeter away from your face is a quite cool experience.

The entrance fee is 45 RM (13 euro) which is quite worth the money.

Aquaria KLCC

Although I'm told that the one in Singapore is better, I was still very impressed with this aquarium. It's large, well kept, and has a huge array of sea life to view. There are glass tunnels you walk through and have the sharks and stingrays swim right over your head. Our daughter just loved it there.

KL Aquaria

What can I say, its an aquarium so there's lots of fish. (hehe) However without trying to sound to cynical this aquarium is worth a visit. I really enjoyed walking around the 90 metre underwater tunnel. And the touch pool to quite fun, but then never let you touch the more interesting fish like Piranha's or Electric eels.

KLCC Aquaria

I should admit I was quite impressed with KLCC Aquaria comparing with the other aquariums I have seen so far. Being very similar to Singapore Underwater World in design, I felt it was better than that. I really enjoyed the comfortable coaches just in front of the big wide aquarium window near the exit. The friendly staff also adds into the plus of this aquarium. The entrance fee is 38 RM. You can spend at least a couple of hours here.

Aquaria KLCC

I've been wanting to go to the newly built Aquaria for quite some time but never got the chance to make it. Being a local is always a disadvantage and it so happens that foreigners would be telling us locals of how great and magnificent these types of places are and yet, we still haven't been there. It's a shame really.

However, I'm proud to say that I completely agree with my friends from abroad who has visited the Aquaria. It's as close as you can get to a shark, giant octopus and huge stingrays - the kind of fish that smacked Steve Irwin. Plus, it's in the city centre and in the shopping mall itself. Well, not exactly cos you would have to walk through the basement parking to get to the other side of the park cos I believe that it's located in the Kuala Lumpur Convention Center (KLCCC).

The price for the tickets are reasonable. For Malaysians with valid Malaysian MyKad, you only need to pay RM28 and it's RM38 for others.

KLCC Aquaria

If you happen to be shopping with your family in Suria KLCC and you have sometime to spare , I think it would be a good idea to go the KLCC Aquaria. You can even make a day trip to come to the Aquaria , see the towers and Taman KLCC and then go shopping but its sure worth the stop.

I remember coming there and all non Malaysians have to pay more for entry. RM38 for Adults and RM22 for kids. This is place is really awesome , they have really a large variety of fish and other animals all over the aquarium. Just keep on moving from place to place there as they start off with fish from the highland and then you get to see all the snakes and bugs from the Jungle and just keep on following the path until you get this glass tunnel which is really something. You have all these large sharks and stingrays and other fish all swimming around you and over you as you have a full view of everything. This was the highlight for me in the aquarium , it even have a conveyor belt which slowly takes you through the tube so you don`t even have to walk. You can get to dive in this tank along side the sharks as I saw many divers in here. Well once you done here you finish up in the Aquaria gift shop. It was a great experience for me and I really enjoy it.

Visiting the Living Oceans @ Aquaria KLCC

Aquaria KLCC is the latest addition of tourist attraction in the vicinity of the Golden Triangle. Housed in the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre building - opposite the twin towers -, it becomes a new home to some of the underwater world rare species.

It can be assessed through a pedestrian tunnel from the Twin Towers. The underground tunnel is located on Concourse Floor of the SURIA KLCC shopping complex.

If you are coming from the KLCC LRT Station, walk through the shopping complex until you reach the Centre Court. Turn left where you can see the Information Counter, KFC Fast Food Restaurant as well as the Tower Records. The entrance to the tunnel is between Tower Records & Memory Lane gifts shop (on your right).

At the end of the tunnel take a left turn going through the car park. From there you can see a big signage indicating AQUARIA KLCC. (See pic)

As it is barely 1 year old - opened mid 2005 - you should not make a comparision between other underwater world that you have visited. Instead, take it as learning experience about the underwater world life with all the interactive equipment provided within.

Dont miss the gigantic Arapaima fish as you come down to the lower level of the Aquaria. The Living Ocean is where they housed many kind of sharks (see pic, sorry a bit blurish), HUGE garoupas, sting rays, eels etc. Among the must sea creature is the Frog Fish, i.e the fish with LEGS!!!!. Dont miss it as its 'house' is almost at the exit before you go up the escalator to the gift shop - ATLANTIS.

Apart from fishes, there is also a short strectch where they house the Chamelion, gigantic frog, poisonous frogs, tarantula etc.

It opens daily from 10 am to 10 pm with last ticket sales and admission is at 9 pm. The standard ticket is sold at RM38 (approx. USD 10) for adults, and RM26 (approx. USD 7) for children between 3 to 12. Below 3 is FOC.

The Aquaria at the new KL Convention Centre

We walked from KLCC - where there is a connected walk near the Burger King outlet. It is a long walk considering with kids. Anyway, prices for the Aquaria is not cheap - cost 30 -odd ringgit each and it takes about 45 mins to complete the walk. It is well designed..reminds me lots of the Kelly place in Auckland. I was disappointed the petting zone was stopped amid abuses from notorious kids.

I highly recommend the kids to take their time. Esplly the starters - i did like the many varied selection of frogs and spiders....they were really unique.
