Hong Kong (香港) - Madame Tussauds' Wax Museum

The flight had landed in Macau International Airport. There's a speed boat waiting for departure the moment we reached Taipa International Jetty. An hour later, we were queuing up for the immigration process. A quick bit of having lunch (McDonald's), walking and taking public transportation, we were at our hostel room near Fotress Hill. Luggages dumped and off we went to The Peak where the famous Madame Tussauds' and the night view of Hong Kong can be seen from the top.

That's the weather most of the time during our trip

We took the city tram to try to reach the place and were lost for a while as we were not familiar with the routes these trams were taking but we did end up at the right place. The ride to the The Peak itself was fun as we took the peak tram up the hill. You can see the whole island of Hong Kong while ascending up the hill.

We entered the wax museum and thus began the paparazzi mode on the galore of celebrities available inside the complex. Famous celebrities from both East and West part of the world occupied all the space, demanding your attentions every second. Just to give a few names away; Nicole Kidman, Michelle Yeoh, Meryl Streeps, Cecilia Cheung, and many more. Actors, singers, politicians, footballers, athletes; anyone whose names bear any fame to it can be found in here, immortalized with wax. I'm definitely dizzy with so many bright stars shining its lights on me.

More pictures after the jump!

There is a side attraction inside Madame Tussauds' wax museum and it is SCREAM, a house of horror of sort. You walk in in a group of ten, if I remembered correctly, and prepare yourselves to be scared shitless. SCREAM you will!


Sharing is caring. A word of advice and a piece of information.

You can actually get more value out of it if you take the packages on Madame Tussauds' wax museum. It is much cheaper to take all three (Peak tram ride, entrance to the museum and entrance to Sky Terrace which will be blogged about next) than buying it separately. You can find out more here.
