5 visitor's tips - Madame Tussauds Bangkok

Madame Tussauds wax museum is one of the most visited attraction in Bangkok. Hence, the museum is always crowded, unpleasant to walk about and often leave bad experiences. Lucky enough for me, I did my research before hand and did not encounter all the nightmares that other visitors complained about. I'm going to share with you these 5 useful tips.

#1 Purchase a combination ticket of Madame Tussauds and Siam Ocean World to save money
You will save a lot on the combination ticket, that is, if you are planning to visit both of the places. It cost 1360 baht, which is 50% cheaper than you purchase the tickets separately. You can purchase it online and collect it at the entrance of Madame Tussauds museum or Siam Ocean World. Depending on the location you collected the ticket, you have to visit the place first.

#2 Be the first in line to enter the Madame Tussauds museum
The crowd gets bigger every second after the opening. Make sure to be there at 10:30am to wait for the opening. Without any delay, head straight to the wax figures that you want to take photo with. This brings us to point number three...

#3 Check on the figure wax that available
Before arriving, check on the website on the wax figures that you eager to see. Just in case there is a huge crowd, you can skip the ones you are not interested. Practice time management here so that you don't get stuck for too long.

#4 Photography tips
The only thing you can really do at Madame Tussauds is to take photos. The lighting on the wax figures are very strong, so do apply some makeups so that you don't look to flat in the photo. Do stand in the spotlight so that you look "blended in", we call this stealing lime light. Avoid using flash because it will create a shine spot on the wax figures and making it look fake. Look around the designated area for some props to make your photo interesting.

#5 Education at the end of the tour
Lastly, at the end of the tour there is a display of how the wax figures work are done. Make sure you don't miss it because it is the only educational section of the museum. Check out on the detais and craftmanship of Madame Tussauds.
