Visit Malaysia Year 2014 - Underwater World, Langkawi

To support Visit Malaysia Year 2014, I will be writing on various tourist attractions in the country. Let us work together to bring in tourists to our lovely Malaysia.


If you grew up watching The Little Mermaid or any underwater movies, you will be enchanted by the beauty of this mystical world and would immediately sign up for diving lessons. But, if you don't know how to swim like me or have phobia of open water, then Underwater World Langkawi is your best solution.

There's more than marine life in the park

A popular attraction in the island, there are more to the theme park than just watching the marine creatures as they have other animals as well. However, as this being Underwater World, these sea darlings take the centre stage.

The park itself is 8 sections, namely sub antartic section, temperate section, tropical rainforest section, freshwater section, marine life section, coral section, koi pond and otter pond sections and reptilium section. Personally, the section I enjoyed the most has to be the sub antartic section for it was in this part of the park where the adorable casts of Happy Feet are at.


Corals are aplenty in the theme park

Nothing beats watching these penguins interacting with each other and moving around. In fact, just looking at them doing nothing worth every penny of the ticket for me. Instead of going to North Pole or South Pole, all I have to do is just to purchase the entrance ticket to the theme park and I can see them up clsoe and personal.

Aren't they all adorable?
