Travel Around The World: Trick Art Museum and Red Carpet in i-City

Few months ago, I visited i-City, which located in Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia. i-City is the best leisure part in Malaysia that I have ever been. It has a very interesting concept: a huge theme park that offers several attractions like Snowalk (biggest snow theme park in Malaysia), Trick Art Museum, Red Carpet, Water World, Ice Adventure, House of Horror, Under the Sea, and few more to mention.

To reach i-City, you can take KTM (one of the rail operator in Malaysia) to Padang Jawa station and take a taxi straight to i-City. If you are coming from Kuala Lumpur, you can take Rapid KL Bus U80 to Shah Alam Bus Station, and change to Rapid KL Bus U605 from Shah Alam Bus Station to i-City.

I spent half day there and it's clearly not enough time to visit all the theme park. I was too busy taking picture with every object in Trick Art Museum and Red Carpet.

Entrance fee to Trick Art Museum is only RM 10 per person, which in my opinion, it's really worth it. Trick Art Museum, as the name implies, is a museum to show optical illusion art that turns two-dimensional paintings into three-dimensional images. To get better idea, let's take a look at some of my pictures below:

OMG, chased by a gorilla!
Stairway to heaven

I'm an angel :)
Let's get out!

Next, still located in the same park, I visited Red Carpet Red Carpet, which is the first wax museum in Malaysia. The entrance fee is a bit expensive, RM 35 for Malaysian, and RM 100 for non-Malaysian. Red carpet is a museum exhibits a collection of wax sculptures representing famous people from history and contemporary personalities exhibited in lifelike poses, wearing real clothes. You are allowed to touch them too!

Marilyn Monroe
President Obama
Queen Elizabeth II
Alexander Graham Bell
Isaac Newton
Bill Gates
Unknown lady. I forgot her name. Anyone knows?
Rowan Atkinson aka Mr Bean
James Bond
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
Elton John
Arnold Schwarzenegger
And many more famous people that I don't post their pictures here.

For those who plan to go to Snowalk, it is advisable to wear a trousers or long pants and bring your own socks and gloves. Of course, there is a dedicated shop selling those, but it would be much cheaper to bring your own. You don't have to bring your own jacket as you can rent it for free (actually it is included in entrance fee). They say it's around 5 degree Celsius inside and the more you go in, the colder it will be.

Unfortunately, I didn't know that they have Snowalk. I was wearing short pants and wasn't prepared for that. Lesson learnt, I should have done some research!

Ah never mind, next time I might come again!
