The Underwater Tunnel is one of Aquaria’s main highlights. Visitors get to stand on a 90m slow moving walkway to see the fish including large rays and sharks. This is the most enjoyable part for me. I couldn’t recall how many times I went in the tunnel lol. The feeling of sharks, rays and other fish swimming past and above you is so surreal. And if you are in the tunnel at the right time, you might even get to see the divers feeding the sharks!
Overall, Aquaria KLCC impressed me. It was a pleasant half-day tour with my dearest. In addition, Aquaria KLCC is also a great place for you to spend your family day; especially if you have kids.
It really is quite exceptionally maintained with wall to wall tanks, and ceiling to floor glass displays that are really impressive and make you feel like you are right in with the fish as they swim around.
