Hong Kong Diaries: Madame Tussauds, Sky Terrace, and Peak Tram

What amazes me about Madame Tussauds is the painstaking process each wax figure undergoes to make sure that it’s as realistic as possible. Attaching hair strands to each lifelike figure, for example, takes up to 56 hours of work.

Madame Tussauds in Hong Kong is divided into several categories – celebrities, pop icons, sports legends, historical/political figures, and cartoons. The museum houses nearly 100 figures. Here are some:

The 3-in-1 ticket combo gives you an entrance pass to Madame Tussauds, Sky Terrace, and a round trip Peak Tram ride. Don’t let the tram’s old-fashioned looks fool you because you can get nervous once it starts its ascent towards the peak!

You can similarly purchase souvenirs in the building like shirts, key chains, and magnets. They’re priced higher than the ones in Mongkok but if you don’t have time for street shopping, the ones in here will do.

After spending nearly four hours here, we went back to Disneyland to use the last day of our 2-day tickets.
