More than 5,000 creatures call Aquaria KLCC home, including sharks, stingrays, snapping turtles, seahorses, electric eels, along with thousands of tropical fish. The fascinating marine habitats offer the opportunity to discover and learn about the ocean wildlife rarely seen by anyone else.

Explore Marine Habitats

Visitors have the chance to immerse themselves in marine life at Aquaria KLCC. Each of the ten habitats inside faithfully recreates an aspect of the ocean environment to simulate life below the surface and takes visitors on an incredible journey of discovery, where they can study the fish, hear about the wildlife and learn about conservation efforts.

Travellers can also take the opportunity to experience the vastness of the ocean without ever getting wet at the Oceanarium – Aquaria KLCC's main attraction. Wander through the 90-metre waterway as Tiger Sharks, Giant Stingrays and Green Turtles swim overhead or stick around for the daily feedings.

Petronas Twin Towers

Admire the striking architecture of Kuala Lumpur’s most prominent landmark up close with a visit to the Petronas Twin Towers. Soaring above the bustling urban centre below, these modern skyscrapers have become symbolic of Kuala Lumpur’s evolution into a truly global metropolis and are a testament to the thriving city they call home. Designed in a distinctly postmodern style, the Petronas Towers are a contemporary icon, fit for the cutting-edge city in which they reside. 

Batu Caves

Discover the majestic cave temples carved from a limestone hill at Batu Caves. Just 13 kilometres north of Kuala Lumpur, this incredible cultural landmark is an important heritage site, with origins dating back more than one hundred and fifty years.

Carved out of a large limestone outcrop, the Batu Caves are a popular tourist attraction and important place of worship just outside Malaysia. Once a point of excavation for Chinese settlers in search of guano to use as vegetable fertiliser, the caves become a significant site in 1890, when Pillai installed the statue of Sri Murugan Swami in the Temple Cave. Shortly thereafter, the Thaipusam Festival was celebrated at Batu Caves – a tradition that continues to this very day. 

See enchanting limestone cliffs
Batu Caves consists of three main caves, with the largest area, the Temple Cave, only accessible by a steep climb of 272 steps. Two more cave temples at the base of the hill, Art Gallery Cave and Museum Cave, are filled with Hindu statues and paintings for visitors to enjoy. Perhaps the most striking element of the Batu Caves, however, is the staggering 42 metre statue of the Hindu deity, Murugan – the largest statue of its kind in the world. The elegant gold figure greets visitors as they arrive at the Caves and begin the climb to Temple Cave.
