It’s oftentimes said that the ocean is the least explored domain, as the treasures it holds are innumerable and beyond the reach of humans. However, at Aquaria KLCC in Kuala Lumpur an effort is made to give visitors an all-round experience of life beneath the waves. The aquarium which is also the largest in the world, houses many incredible oceanic beings. Most creatures showcased in the aquarium are given geographic specificity. Thus a visit to the aquarium is both educative and entertaining. Located within the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, the aquarium is in close proximity to Berjaya Times Square Hotel. This Hotel in Bukit Bintang Kuala Lumpur provides easy access to all the fascinating places around town. However, Aquaria KLCC is the most attractive!
Over 5000 freshwater and oceanic beings are housed at the aquarium. To make sure you don’t get lost amidst these fearsome and awesome beings it would be best that you start your tour at level one. Here you will encounter electric catfish, piranhas and elephantnose fish. Glaring and shooting unusual glances, they swim past swiftly. At level 2, you will be transported to an Amazonian rainforest where you will be introduced to red tail catfish and araipaima. It is here that you will also meet deep sea creatures.
You can also dare to swim amidst tiger sharks and stingrays. It would certainly be a spine-tingling experience. However, you could be reassured that the sharks wouldn’t be a menacing presence. They are well-acquainted with humans and would be glad to meet you.
Moreover, the aquarium also has a 90m walk-through tunnel. Look above and you would feel as though you are swimming among a stupendous amount of marine life.
A visit to the Aquaria KLCC is not to be missed at any cost!
