Sabah Part Four (The Upside Down House)


Welcome to Rumah Terbalik! Rumah means house in malay and terbalik means upside down. So that makes it the unique Upside Down House. 🙂 It is the very first one in Southeast Asia. The rest of them are in Europe and Japan. So what a rare chance to see this in Sabah! ^^

Location: Mile 21, Jalan Telibong, Tamparuli

It was around 35 deg and a bunch of us dropped by this house. Luckily it was air-conditioned inside. If not, all of us would have died from heat stroke.


Here is the place where tickets can be bought. Different pricing rates for Malaysians and foreigners.

Malaysian: RM10.00 per person for adult & RM5.00 per person for child

Non-Malaysian: RM18.00 per person for adult & RM5.00 per person for child

I am a half Malaysian.. So where do I fall under? ;p

Apparently, there aren’t a lot of people. We went in August so it wasn’t the peak period for travelling. Phew!


This place was officially opened in 2012 which makes it a pretty new travel attraction. Lucky to have visited this special house when we visited.


We all look so happy! Must be the colors!~



In case you are wondering, where are the photos of the interior of the house, photography is not allowed inside. Bleh. But basically what you will see once you step into the house is inverted household items. For example, the tables will be hanging from the ceiling and then the air-con will be on the floor. It is just a small house. The entire visit takes less than 30 minutes.


Here is the garage! 🙂

In the next post, I will be sharing our ascent of Mount Kinabalu! 🙂 What’s Sabah without the legendary Kota Kinabalu? 🙂

  1. Thanks for dropping by! You should fall under the Malaysian category then. Haha. Otherwise you have to pay more, which is unfair, right? 😉

      • Unfair, right? In 2012 I went to Berjaya Theme Park at the Berjaya Times Square and you know what the counter lady asked me… she asked: Are you a Malaysian or Singaporean; and asked for my MyKAD! Haha. So much for the double standard rate.
