Hong Kong Trip - The Peak and Madame Tussauds Wax Museum

From Citygate Outlet Mall, we took the MTR back to Hong Kong. Initially we intended to to take the tram to the Peak but we were told that we needed to walk to Central MTR Station to the lower terminus.

The officer then told us to catch a bus instead. The bus station is just on top of MTR Station. We just walked up and taa daa we were at the bus station.

We took the bus and the bus journey took us about 20 minutes before we reached the bus station below The Peak Galleria. We crossed to the building called Peak Tower and went to level P101 for our visit to Madame Tussauds wax museum.

Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in Hong Kong is the first branch in Asia. It was opened since 2000 and displayed about 100 wax figures of celebrities and famous people. After the renovation and expansion in 2006, the museum is divided into 8 zones, namely Hong Kong Glamours, Royal Families, Historical and National Heroes, TV Studio, World Premiere, The Champions, Authentic History, Music Icons, and  Fantasy Kingdom.

I have been to three Madamme Tussauds museums and to be honest, all of them are the same. I felt wow-ed for my first visit in Bangkok and just nothing for my second and third visit in Sydney and Hong Kong. I do not like it in Hong Kong because the place is small and the crowds are terrible. We could not even get the right angles for the photos because of the narrow alleys and many many people waiting for their turn too.

So, I'd rather spend my HKD 210 (~SGD 28) entrance ticket for good food or shopping!

After finishing our tour inside, we walked out to the veranda of The Peak Tower to see the view of Hong Kong from Victoria Peak. I think there is no need to up to The Peak Terrace and pay the money when you are able to get the view just by sitting at the veranda or sipping your cup of coffee at Pacific Coffee.
