Aquaria KLCC located on the concourse level of the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, the 5000sqft Aquaria KLCC is said to be largest aquarium in the world.
Some people write it off as a tourist trap, but I beg to differ.
I have to say that Aquaria KLCC is one of the country’s foremost sightseeing attractions with real depth and complexity.
The aquarium will submerge you beneath thousands of gallons of seawater and take you through different watery landscapes, from the highlands and flooded jungles of Malaysia, to the Amazon basin, coral reefs and the open ocean.
Various beautiful deep sea creatures can be seen here.
If you are ever here, don’t forget to check out the DNA Touch Pool where they can pick up and feel the texture of live corals and star fishes.

The best parts of Aquaria KLCC is their Diving with Sharks program. Those who don’t have diving permits can join the Cage Rage programme where visitors take the plunge into the tank within the confines of a submerged cage.
Even though visitors have to sign a liability waiver form in order to strap on tanks, it’s a safe environment as the sharks have been in Aquaria KLCC for more than five years now and are domesticated.
Swimming with the sharks? Yes please. For more information on Aquaria KLCC refer below:
