One of Penang’s best and most well kept secret is probably the fact that Penang has sort of an underwater world. I never even knew it existed! But another Penang friend also didn’t know! This goes to show how much publicity goes into making this place known.
Located at the Lembaga Ikan, this is a very quiet place. While there was a sign that says “No Photography”, a quick check with the staff and there was no problem. They had a variety of species on display and with no crowd, I was free to take my time in photographing these wonderful species.
There are no funky underwater tunnels but I was never a fan of those things anyway. When you go round and round, you can hardly take the time to enjoy the view of these fishes. There is also no sharks but hey, its not like Aquaria has the Great White on display.
So, if you want to take a quiet stroll and enjoy your time looking at these fishes without being elbowed, then the Penang Aquarium is definitely one good spot. I definitely enjoyed myself at Penang’s best kept secret.
