Originally a key London attraction, Madame Tussauds has branched out and now has it's wax work museums all over the world. Here you can view life size models of the rich and famous. If you ever wanted to have your photograph taken next to President Obama or Michael Jackson, this is your chance. Since this is the Hong Kong branch of Tussauds, the stars have a distinct Chinese preference but there will still be plenty of international faces that you will recognize.

Madame Tussauds is in the Peak Centre at the top of Victoria Mountain. You can get there by bus but the best route is via the Peak Tram that runs up the mountain from central. A heavily discounted combo ticket is available for Madame Tussauds and the Peak Tram. The tram ride is an adventure in itself as the vintage style car runs up the steep hillside giving unique views of the city below.
