Upside Down House @ Jalan Telibong, Tamparuli, Kota Kinabalu

11 Feb

Dear Food lovers,

South East Asia very first Upside Down House (Rumah Terbalik). This brand new attraction house is located in Tamparuli, along the main highway to Mount Kinabalu.

The house is owned by Mr Alexander Yee and designed by an architect named Cheong Kok Ann. The reason behind this project was to act as a pit stop for people (especially tourist) who are on their journey to Mount Kinabalu, Kiulu and east coast districts.

I arrived on third day after their grand opening, the place was packed with locals. The upside down house is located at the centre, sitting on it’s roof with an extended bridge that connects patrons to it’s front door. On the left side of the land sits a car porch with an upside down car. We bought our tickets on the right side where the queue was. It took quite some time before our turn came to enter the house.  Before we were allow to enter, our tour assistant brief us on a few rules to abide by. Not allowed to take pictures, stay on the red carpet at all times and etc. Like what?? No pictures allowed. What’s the point of me visiting this place then?

Back on track, our little tour did not last long. Probably not more than 7 minutes as there was not much to explore. The house consists of three rooms, a toilet and a living room that connects to the kitchen. All house furniture’s were upside down. You name it, they have it. They too have a few household items that were used in the early 1900s by the indigenous tribe, which they inform you as you walk pass those items.

Souvenir shop, coffee shop and toilet may be found after you exit the house.

Queue up like everyone else.
