Madame Tussauds Museum in Bangkok

by - February 27, 2021

Hi guys! Today I finally manage to find some time to write a new article and edit my pictures in Bangkok for you guys. I will try my best to write up my pending travel posts before I flew again. My sister and I took our first trip to Thailand together in March 2018. I know this article has been too long but it doesn't hurt to share it for you right?!

We had breakfast at Bakmi GM in the airport before leaving for Thailand.

After we finished breakfast we moved to the Krispy Kreme Donuts cafe while waiting for our flight schedule. Since we are still too full, we only ordered oreo frappe and donuts to share.

Oreo frappe was way too sweet.

When we were waiting for the flight my sister asked me to take a picture with her.

So on the first day, we arrived in Thailand, we were really exhausted so we only bought fried rice and some sandwiches at the convenient store and headed straight to the hotel.

This is the Le Pan Banana. These little soft sponge cakes that are filled with banana-flavored filling. A tad too sweet for my liking.

The pineapple pie was delicious with real pineapple fruit inside.

This was the worst sandwich I've ever had in my life.

 We tried them but their taste was nothing special.

On the next day, we wake up early in the morning to have breakfast in the hotel and then headed to go to Madame Tussauds Museum. Madame Tussaud is located on the 4th floor in one of the Siam Towers. After hearing so many famous people's wax statues, finally, I was there to see them with my bare eyes itself.

Contains a 5D movie theatre like Ice Age.

The last part of the visit to Madame Tussauds Bangkok was a 4D cinema with a 9-minute short “Ice Age” film. During the movie, you will enjoy unexpected features such as light water splashes, shaken seats, air shoots out and the snowflakes falling down, all of them making the ice age atmosphere so realistic.

Although I did not take photos of all the wax figures at Madame Tussauds Bangkok, I think I took most of them. I skipped those that were being blocked by people. I have to admit I have no patience waiting for people to finish posing with the statues. 

After we finished the Madame Tussauds museum, we went out to lunch at the Food Republic. This food court on the second floor of the Siam Center.

The food is OK but the prices are a little high by food court standards.

Overall, the Madame Tussauds Museum should become one of the destinations to go when you travel to Bangkok, Thailand. It is an amazing wax museum and all people amaze of the wax statues exhibited because they are made to be kinds of public figures in perfectly look like the real figures. We really had fun visiting the place. It was really worth it for us.

My advice is to buy your ticket online because the queue is much shorter for online tickets. I booked Madame Tussauds ticket via Klook. And try to go in the morning so you can avoid crowds and reserve about 4 hours to see the whole museum.
