Visiting The Aquarium In KL At Aquaria KLCC

Visiting Aquaria KLCC In KL

Aquaria KLCC will enthrall families with an impressive exhibit of some 5000 aquatic and marine animals that include sea rays, sharks, and otters; it is one of few attractions in the city that’s truly world-class. Located in the basement of the KL Convention Centre, the sea complex’s highlight is its 90m giant underwater tunnel. Stand on the moving floor that snakes slowly through a glass tunnel with excellent views into the magical underwater world of tiger sharks, giant groupers and darting moray eels and fantail rays. The bottom-up view is a great way to get up-close with small sharks and large catfish that tend to linger around. There are several other exciting exhibits – touch tanks where kids can feel and touch starfish, corals and even rays, under the guidance of the aquarium’s staff. Turn finding Nemo into an adventure with your little ones – there is plenty of clownfish to spot throughout. There’s also the 3-meter long monster Arapaima fish that will leave kids and adults awestruck by their size. Be sure not to miss daily feeding sessions with sharks, eels, and turtles. It is quite a spectacle! Do check out the aquarium’s website for the feeding schedule. There’s a well-stocked gift shop at the exit for a souvenir to take home from your visit here.
