Today, our Thai friends didn’t accompany us because they have to back to work. So today, We go by our own travelling skill. 😛

Our first place to visit is Madam Tussauds Bangkok. First, we rode MRT from HuayKwang Station to MRT Sukhumvit / BTS Asok, then change into BTS to Siam Centre, then change again to BTS Silom Line, stop at National Stadium.

BTS Mo Chit Line, ride this to go to BTS Siam

At first, we stop at Siam. And there’s no direction which exit to Siam Discovery Centre, where madam Tussauds take a place. Then we ask the information centre, and she said that we have to stop at National Stadium. So she help us to make our BTS card can be stop at BTS National Stadium, of course we have to pay the additional fee.

After arrive at National Stadium Station, then look for the exit to Discovery Centre. Then walk using sky walk.

The Siam Discovery Centre, open at 10:00, and we arrived there at 09:15. So we have to wait for 45 minutes. T_T

Madame Tussaud’s history is a rich and fascinating one, with roots dating back to 1770s Paris. It was here that Madame Tussaud learnt to model wax likeness under the tutelage of her mentor, Dr Philippe Curtius. At the age of 17, she became the art tutor to King Louis XVI’s sister at the the Palace of Versailles and then, during the French Revolution, was hastily forced to prove her allegiance to the feudalistic nobles by making the death makes of executed aristrocrats. Madame Tussaud came to Britain in to early 19th century alongside a travelling exhibition of revolutionary relics and effigies of public heroes and rouges.

Explore the lives of the many notable people that shaped and influenced Asia and test your knowledge of history. Then discover how seemingly everyday objects can provide an insight into the lives of these important figures.

Finally, learn more about Princess Diana’s life as a young girl, married woman, mother, style icon and how she became the people’s princess.

I’m sure you know what’s inside Madam Tussauds. We can meet some actor / actress, President, famous people, but only their Model Wax.

The ticket fee is 800 Baht. But try to buy the ticket from travel agent, which you can see while go upstairs (Madam Tussauds was at 6th floor), and you will get the discount.

Address : Madame Tussauds, Siam Discovery, 6th Floor, 989 Rama 1 Road, Pathumwan, Bangkok 10330

Just be patient when you come here and meet some group tour. Spend much times here, don’t plan anything important after this. So when there’s too many people take photos on 1 spot, just wait and take another photo of another spot which available at that area first. Then after they gone, you can freely take photos.

We decided to separate, women and men. So that we can more explore.
Platinum Fashion Mall has 3 building. Unfortunately, we the woman, didn’t know about this. We only roaming around building 3. And we thought, why the mall was too small.

So we the women, finished shopping early than the men. Wowww… It’s record. Usually, the men whom waiting for us. haha..

Then we just found out, that there’s 3 building of Platinum Shopping Mall. They (the men), buy a lot. We (the women), buy just a little. T_T
