The Kuala Lumpur Upside Down House, also known as the KL Upside Down House, and Rumah Terbalik KL in the local Malaysian language, Bahasa, is basically a house that has been built upside down as the name implies. Opened in June 2016, everything inside this attraction, such as the house’s furnishings and fittings, are all upside down too. Thinking of paying a visit? You’ll find this upside down house right next to Kuala Lumpur Tower. If you’re staying at a hotel in Kuala Lumpur such as the Berjaya Times Square Hotel or another establishment in a similar area, you should be able to get to the Kuala Lumpur Upside Down House in around fifteen minutes by car. It’ll also take you around the same time to get here from the Petronas Twin Towers on foot.
The house is open daily from nine in the morning until seven in the evenings and will take a maximum of an hour for you to look around and take pictures in. A ticket to enter the Upside Down House will cost you somewhere in the ballpark of around fifteen Malaysian ringgits for an adult, and around ten ringgits for a child. You can start your tour in the living room and then check out the kitchen, before taking the steps to get to the next floor which houses the bedrooms. There is also a garage out front which is upside down and has an upside down car affixed to its floor, or rather, roof.
The craze of building upside down structures to attract tourists began in Malaysia quite some time ago in 2012, when the first such house was built in Sabah, Malaysia. Similar others soon followed in areas such as Melaka, Penang and Port Dickson. The Rumah Terbalik KL is the first one to be constructed in the country’s capital, Kuala Lumpur.
