Madame Tussauds and a failed visit to the Ocean Park

We woke up early in the morning to prepare for a fun-filled day at the Ocean Park. The sky looks great! We took the Citybus route 629 from Admiralty MTR station to Ocean Park.

But there were a tad too many people in Ocean Park, the queues for the rides were damn loooongggg!! If you are planning a trip to the Ocean Park, please avoid coming during weekend, if possible.

That's not the worst thing that happen to us. Around an hour or so after we entered Ocean Park, when we have not even successfully queued for a single ride, the blue skies we saw earlier was replaced by dark clouds.. AHHHHHH!!!

 And it rained!! Mercilessly on us!!

What the hell!! We only have 1 umbrella and we were definitely not in the mood to squeeze around in Ocean Park with this sea of umbrellas and queuing for dunno how many donkey hours for a ride. The rain didn't seem to get any smaller after an hour, and we decided to leave without taking any rides. :(

What did we do after a failed morning at Ocean Park? We went back to the hotel, washed up and decided to go indoors, Madame Tussauds. The Madame Tussauds at Hong Kong has more HK stars figurines.

Madame Tussauds is located at the famous attraction in Hong Kong, The Peak. We took the Peak Tram up and visited this place. 

When you are at the Peak at night, do not miss the Symphony of Lights which starts at 8pm everyday! The view is great from The Peak!
