Hong Kong Summer Spectacular with HKTB – Madame Tussaud’s

Rachel and I visited Hong Kong’s Madame Tussaud’s wax museum on our fifth day in Hong Kong.

We arrived there at around evening time, after some heavy shopping for most part of the day. Nonetheless, we still manage to take a lot of photos at Madame Tussaud’s, leaving our shopping items on the floor as we take turn to take photos.

The wax figurines were so life-like! Maybe they come alive at night when the museum closes, just like in the movie, Night of the Museum.

Like Singapore, Hong Kong is influenced by both west and east cultures. Hence it was nice to see wax figurines coming from a mix of both Hollywood stars and Asian stars, as well as both Western and Asian influential individuals.

Anyway, here are the photos. Enjoy:
