Aquaria KLCC Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Lumpur Overview

Aquaria KLCC is an oceanarium that is located on the concourse level of Kuala Lumpur Convention Center. Sprawling more than 60,000 square feet over two levels, this is one of the largest aquariums in Southeast Asia housing more than 250 varied species of animals. The main highlight of Aquaria KLCC is the 90-meter underwater tunnel surrounded by tiger shark, seahorses, and the bright coral fish.

Constructed in 2003, Aquaria KLCC was officially opened to the public in 2005. It has since then consistently been involved in spreading awareness about marine life forms. The oceanarium takes one through a journey from the highlands, to the rivers, through the rainforest into the coral reefs and then into the open ocean.
