Turn your world upside down when you visit this unique house in Tamparuli – literally! The ‘Rumah Terbalik’ (which translates to Upside Down House) is the first of its kind in South East Asia and among the five upside-down structures in the world .
The house was opened to the public in early February 2012 and has been attracting visitors from near and far. The house itself is hard to miss, having been flipped upside down, with its floor facing skyward. Everything inside the house, from furniture to household appliances, hover above your head, as the ceiling is actually the floor. Visitors will notice some distinguishing Sabahan décor and features showcased in this house. In the garage, a car is parked upside down. It might seem disorienting at the first few seconds, but the fascination of it will all takes over. This architectural wonder has also been included in the Malaysia Book of Records for being the first of its kind in the nation.
After the 'Rumah Terbalik', proceed to Tamparuli Hanging Bridge and explore our local people daily living. Sabah is rich with special kind of things, one of it is the hanging bridge. If you travel around Sabah, you can see a lot of this hanging bridges in rural area. If you compare Sabah with Peninsular of Malaysia, there is no such thing as hanging bridge. And if travel in Sabah, you will really fascinated with this bridge.
