Whether it is for a date, an enlightening visit, or for pleasure, Aquaria KLCC is one of the popular attractions in Kuala Lumpur. Widely favoured by locals and tourists alike, this state-of-the-art aquarium is can be found on the concourse level of the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC). If you have not visited this aquarium yet, you are in for a surprise.
Here are five reasons why we are sure that you will enjoy ‘sea’-ing Aquaria KLCC.
Experience Something New At The Touch Pool
Have you always wanted to see some sea creatures up close and personal, and touch them too? Well, now you can!
Dip your hands into the pool and stroke the sea life in shallow waters. Feel the smooth skin of the bamboo sharks, or the rocky surface of a starfish that lazes about in the pool. Do not worry, they do not bite.
It is certainly an experience not to be missed! How often can you tell anyone that you have seen and touched a bamboo shark first-hand?
Cuteness Overload With Sea Otters
No matter how old you are, you’ll squeal when you see a family of sea otters gambol about in their den. At Aquaria KLCC, there are lookout points where you can crawl under their habitat (sort of) and watch the adorable otters swim and slide in the ‘river’.
The sea otters are also pretty photogenic and love to pose for the camera. If you are lucky enough to capture the moment before they move on to their next pose.
Experience Walking Underwater At The Underwater Tunnel
This must be the most prominent highlight of Aquaria KLCC. Can you picture yourself traversing in deep waters under the sea just to gaze in wonder at the underwater sea life swimming all around you? Well, now you can via the 90-metre underwater tunnel.
Take a slow stroll or stand on the slow-moving travellator, and watch the schools of fishes, sand tiger sharks, marine turtles, stingrays, and other sea creatures swim past. It is truly a glorious sight to behold.
Explore Life Underwater With Different Exhibits
There is more to the aquatic life than just the oceans and seas. Visitors will walk through ten different exhibits in Aquaria KLCC. Each exhibit portrays a habitat intact with its inhabitants.
Learn the origins of these species and their unusual characteristics right here in one of the largest aquariums in Southeast Asia. Do not forget to observe the striking coral reefs along the way!
