The Aqualia KLCC is a newly added attraction in the KLCC area. It’s a phenomenal underwater aquarium that equates the Underwater World Langkawi which is considered one of the largest and most sophisticated aquariums in Malaysia.
The Aqualia KLCC is a gigantic masterpiece that occupies as many as two floor levels within the Kuala Lumpur Convention Center (KLCC). For your information, the KLCC is only about a stone throw away from the magnificent Petronas Towers.
The attraction of Aqualia KLCC lies in the fact that it’s a non-conventional or at least not like the typical aquarium that you have seen previously. In fact, most aquariums in the Aqualia KLCC are designed based on the frameless and coverless concept in which a sense of openness is the order of the day. All of these are due to the marvelous technology that emphasizes the use of glasses. You will see a lot of waters flowing around, school of fishes that are within your reach and all sorts of marine creatures that comes to life as if they are living in the wilderness.
The shocking fact is that this state-of-the-art Aqualia KLCC is home to over 5,000 creatures, both aquatic and terrestrial, including around 150 different species of fish from across the world. And this is including the Amazon ecosystem that covers not only the aquatic species but also land-based animals such as gigantic insects and others rare creatures. As a result, you will be treated to one of the world’s most diverse aquatic facility.
Conceptualized around the route that water takes from the mountains to the sea, the Aqualia KLCC recreates various ecosystems. The journey begins in the highlands and is followed by a flooded forest display where giant catfish can be seen lurking among tree roots. Other ecosystems include mangroves, coral reefs, and the spectacular open ocean.
A highlight is the 295-ft (90-m) long moving walkway underwater tunnel, which offers views of a simulated natural habitat and a shipwreck colonized by reef inhabitants, as well as close-up sightings of stingrays, eels, and rare sand tiger sharks.
Moreover, the Aqualia KLCC has a built-in theater that films on Malaysia’s marine life, and a touch pool lets children handle aquatic creatures. There is even a package that is for the more adventurous visitors who want to swim with sharks, but advance booking is essential.
All in all, the Aqualia KLCC is absolutely a must-visit premier tourist destination in Malaysia.
