It’s not the first time I say that I really love aquariums and this is why I try to never miss an opportunity to visit a new one. During my trip to Kuala Lumpur, I discovered a new and interesting aquarium which shelters a variety of species from all over the world.
I am talking about the Aquaria KLCC, a Malaysian marvel situated right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. It is actually located in a Convention Center and it is connected to Suria KLCC Shopping Center by a gangway.
Built on two levels and covering an area of about 60000 square feet, the Aquaria KLCC shelters over 5000 aquatic and land species. All these species are exposed in 15 different exhibition areas. From the Piranha Tank and the Coral Walk to the Flooded Forest and the Stream, all these areas are designed to reproduce the natural habitats of the animals which are exposed.
It will be a real delight to explore this underwater world and let yourself fascinated by jellyfish, sea turtles, sharks, corals, octopuses, seahorses, otters and a multitude of fish and other species.
An interesting detail is the fact that there are some areas in this aquarium, where visitors are allowed to touch some of the aquatic animals, such as the tiger sharks or the starfish. The glass observation tunnel and the sea turtles tank are my favorite areas in the Aquaria KLCC. Believe me when I say that I could have stared at these animals for hours! Aquariums are in general the perfect places to relax and enjoy a fun day with family and friends.
All things considered, if you are planning a trip to Kuala Lumpur, you should definitely choose to explore this aquarium! Take a look at the following pictures and I’m sure it will be enough to convince you to visit the Aquaria KLCC!
