A World Of Wax: Madame Tussauds Hong Kong
Planning on where to go in Hong Kong? You should include Madame Tussauds on your HK travel itenerary. I really had fun visiting the place. It was really worth it for me.
Madame Tussauds Hong Kong is located on the second floor of the Peak Tower at the Victoria Peak, same building where Sky Terrace 428, the highest 360° viewing terrace in Hong Kong is located.
Madame Tussauds Hong Kong is a wax museum founded by Madame Tussaud, a known artist in France,London, exhibiting different life-size wax figures of world famous people and characters. There are also other branches in other parts of the world which are located at:
