Rumah Terbalik, Tamparuli

(1/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Rumah Terbalik translates as "upside down house" and remains one of only five structures of its kind in the world. With every piece of furniture--including all kitchen appliances and bathroom utilities--suspended over your head, the setting gives the impression of walking on the ceiling. Stop by this quirky place with a distinguishing Sabahan decor to take a guided tour and purchase souvenirs at the gift shop. The onsite restaurant offers traditional cuisine, freshly brewed coffee, and gourmet ice cream. Photographs are not allowed inside but can be taken outside the house or in the upside-down garden. To visit Rumah Terbalik and get the most from your holiday in Tamparuli, create itinerary details personal to you using our Tamparuli trip itinerary maker.
