Aquaria, an underwater wonderland and just the sort of activity we’ll all be needing with the haze making a return!
While it’s not one of the cheapest places to visit, you soon realise what goes into making this place such an amazing little escape from the city. (The price for tourists is 64RM for adults, 53RM for children aged 3-12. For Malaysians or people with the I-Kad/MyKad rates are 46RM and 35RM respectively)
It really is quite exceptionally maintained with wall to wall tanks, and ceiling to floor glass displays that are really impressive and make you feel like you are right in with the fish as they swim around.
Aquaria KLCC is home to the longest underwater tunnel in Malaysia which runs for 90 meters but fear not, you don’t even need to walk! Instead you will be slowly moved along on a travelator so that you can concentrate on being overwhelmed by sharks swimming over your head, stingrays swooping past you, and colourful fish playing right in front of your very eyes.
But first, you’ll encounter piranhas, snakes, otters, jellyfish and if you time it right, you can catch feeding time with the otters who were very cute and playful!
With massive fish tanks that stand tall (sometimes over two floors) the darkened rooms and clever lighting guarantee you will be impressed.
I’ll let you discover the rest for yourselves but if you do go, you MUST make sure that your visit coincides with feeding time at the Aquatheatre!
Twice daily at 12 noon and 3pm two of their resident divers go in the water and hand feed an array of species. This ‘show’ was spectacular in every way, we all could have watched this for hours; it was an absolute highlight. Enjoy, S x
