Madame Tussauds - Bangkok,Thailand


After visiting Wat TramitWat Pho and Wat Benchamabophit, instead of returning back to Pathumwan Hotel, I got down in front of Siam Discovery Center. Thereafter, I made my way to Madam Tussuads on the 6th floor. 800 THB for 2 hours in Madam Tussauds sounded pricey, but since I was really keen, my first time too, I paid. Walking into this 10th franchise of the first wax museum in London, I then knew what all the hype is about. Wax Figurines. Resembling almost like the real famous, popular and well known people, whether in country or throughout the world, Madam Tussauds Thailand showcases  30% of Thai descent wax figures and the rest, as I have already said, people potentially known throughout the world. Basically, it’s your own walk of fame to see, admire, read and for taking as many pictures as you like with your favorite famous figurines while imagining you are up, close and personal with the real ones. Some already in heaven, whereas the rest still alive and kicking. Taking pictures however is quite a thing because you have to wait among the many and since I was alone, thanks to the staff who willingly helped, though picturing with the royal figures is prohibited.

Within less than an hour, I have seen it all in Madam Tussauds, so, I was not wrong in wondering why I should pay 800 THB. Didn’t make sense. No, it didn’t. On my way out, I passed by the section where I saw how the figurines are made and then into merchandise shop.
