The Upside Down House of Borneo

Location: Kg. Telibong, Tamparuli. Not far away from SMK Tamparuli
Officially opened: 1st February 2012
Visiting hours: 8.00am - 8.00pm daily

Entrance fees:
    Adults - RM10 (MyKad holders), RM18 (non-MyKad holders)
    Children - RM5
    Babies - FOC (2 yrs old/ below)

Fancy living in an upside down house, anyone?

In Brief

It is a small house - 140sq. metre - equipped with kitchen, dining room, living room, bathroom, bedrooms with its interior decorated with many unique features of Sabah. Except for a bubu (a traditional fishing trap) everything is placed upside down.

A guided tour to the interior of the house takes not more that 15 minutes during our visit, probably due to other groups of other visitors waiting in line. It is understandable as it was only the 4th day since its official opening. After sometime, perhaps, you could spend more time there and hopefully they would allow photography inside the house.

But considering the RM10 fee per person, it could be a one-of visit to many unless the owner add up more attractions within and outside the centre in the future. The house is designed for a small family of three and hence its small size.

Even the garage is upside down.

Have a safe journey and make this place a pit-stop the next time you travel to Ranau, Sandakan, and Tawau. It's just next to the Shell gas station.
