Langkawi Must Visit - Underwater World Langkawi

 Dear Beloved Readers, 

When was your last time visiting an underwater world attraction? It has been awhile for me and I even forgotten about the feeling when surrounded by the great marine life. I was excited when I knew that I will be visiting Underwater World Langkawi for the very first time, although I have been to Langkawi for countless time.

A Moment To Be Remembered!

Underwater World Langkawi is one of the largest marine and freshwater aquaria in Southeast Asia that has been operated for the past 25 years. It was built to raise awareness on the importance of conserving the precious aquatic life with the concept geared towards knowledge, education and also entertainment.

I was so entertained by the seal feeding where these cute creatures were fed by their trainer while showing their own abilities such as dancing, flipping on the hop and more! The show ended within 15 - 20 minutes but really worth waiting and watching it.
