The fact is, this Upside Down House or locally known as Rumah Terbalik was purposely built up side down and may be the only one you can find in South East Asia. Officially opened in February 2012, this latest tourist attraction is located about 30 km away from the city of Kota Kinabalu. The house was rumoured built at a cost of RM1 million.

Inside the house (unfortunately pictures are now allowed to be taken), you will find furniture and fittings of the house all placed in up side down position too and be warned that spending some time in the house may cause dizziness to certain people.


To get there from the city of Kota Kinabalu, you may opt to hire a taxi but be sure to arrange a return trip as taxis on standby may not be readily available at this location.

The Upside Down house is opened daily from 7a.m to 7p.m..

Entrance fee: Malaysian (RM10), Foreigner (RM18), Children below age of 12 (RM5).
