This upside down house attraction is bringing in a gigantic draw as people are flocking to see the newest concept house with all the furniture and furnishings placed upside down. The house is located at the Kuala Lumpur Tower and is called the Kuala Lumpur Upside Down House, which only opened to the public early last month and is said to be the tallest upside down house in the whole country.
What can we expect from this upside down attraction?
The foundation is a medium sized English cottage made of 80% steel while the rest was made of wood. Just like and actual house, it has bedrooms, kitchen, living room and bathrooms. Construction of the upside down house was complex since every inch needed to be mounted carefully as everything is upside down.
The double storey house with a height of 6.1m and an area of 2,000 square feet took about three months to complete. Datuk Anuar A. Rahman, the marketing manager revealed to The Star that the daily number of visitors has reached more than 400 people, comprising of both domestic and foreign tourists. He also indicated that plans were in the works to build an upside down flower garden around the house as a supplementary attraction, which is expected to be completed later this year.
The first ever upside down house in Malaysia was constructed in Tuaran, Sabah in 2012 followed by another in Penang, one in Melaka and also a recent upside down house in Port Dickson. The home in Sabah resembles an actual house while the others are all inside shop lots, which is not that enthralling for tourists.
The new attraction is suitable for just about anyone – locals, tourists, families with kids and even couples looking for a quirky date. You could go there and take a bunch of photos outside and inside the house and you would simply need an hour at most to complete the attraction.

Upside Down House Gallery in Port Dickson
The fun art gallery opened in May 2015 and is located at Batu 9 or Mile 9 along Jalan Pantai Port Dickson near the Ostrich Farm and everything from furniture to appliances hovers above your head. The trick is to take photographs ordinarily and then edit it upside down to have that bizarre effect. Make sure you pose as if you are upside down as well.
Address: No. 13 A & 15 Jalan Coral Walk, Batu 9, Jalan Pantai Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan (Near Ostrich Farm and Politeknik Port Dickson).
Upside Down House Gallery in Melaka
This is an entertaining place where all the furniture and décor is placed upside down. The director of the gallery decided to set up a new and distinctive attraction for Melaka because of his love for the township. You could ask the staff at the gallery to take photos for you. They will also recommend some humorous and fun ideas.
