A topsy turvy world

A new attraction in Phuket gives exciting experiences to visitors who want to know how they would feel if the world is turned upside down

Phuket, a province and island in the South, attracts millions of tourists each year. However, just the sea, sand and sun as well as delicious food may be sometimes inadequate to excite repeat visitors and the young generation. One of the city's latest tourist attractions is Baan Teelanka, or the Upside Down House, in Muang district. The place is fun for people of all ages.

Visiting there is suitable for both busy and easy-going tourists. If you have a tight schedule, you can finish the trip and take good photos within half-an-hour. But, if you have enough time, you can spend up to 90 minutes visiting the Upside Down House, getting lost in the garden maze and enjoying the live room escape game in the same compound.

After stepping out of the ticket office, you will be mesmerised by what you see. Literally, a house is standing on its roof and chimney. This is a must for everyone to get great photos. The tip for photography at Baan Teelanka is capturing fun moments using your mobile phones and turn the photos around using the photo editor programme in order to create the images of you walking on or climbing from the ceiling. The most recommended posture in front of the house is to leaning over the roof, lifting and placing one of your legs up upon the gable.

If you are not in a hurry, you can drop by at the 4D photo sets in front of the house. The sets depict a monster with fangs, a fierce dinosaur, a zombie and a huge boxer. If you know how to pose for pictures, it will look like you are being chased or attacked by these things.

Entering the house, you will feel like everything is topsy turvy. As a matter of fact, it is the work of construction and interior design techniques. What is supposed to be on the floor is attached to the ceiling instead. What supposed to be on the ceiling is on the floor. When you pose for pictures and turn the photos around, you and other people will see the digitally adjusted pictures depicting you walking on or climbing from the ceiling, crawling like Spider-Man and being upside down.

In this Upside Down House, you can get funny photo shots everywhere and staff are ready to give advice on how to pose or even take pictures for you. The sets are the colourful living room, a cozy bedroom, a reading corner, the bar and the kitchen. Outstanding shots include standing upside down by holding a sofa like a gymnastic bar, crawling over a window and balancing yourself upside down over a bucket on a counter.

On the upper floor, your photo opportunities will be more exciting with a lot of props for you to play and pose with. You may want to hold onto a tuk tuk, which is parked upside down, carry a golf club or badminton racket, ride a bicycle, feed dogs, do laundry and fix your house in an upside down style. Actually, these objects are attached to the ceiling and hanging down for you to hold onto.

After completing your trip in the house, you may want to visit the 1,000m² hedge garden. This labyrinth was designed by Adrian Fisher, one of the world's most famous maze designers. Game lovers may want to visit the Chamber of Secrets featuring games for players to exercise their brains and try to escape from the room within the provided deadline.

In brief, Baan Teelanka is a small yet interesting place for both locals and tourists to enjoy their quirky photo opportunities and test their smartness. If you have spare time from your island adventures, swimming, water sports, trekking and cultural excursions, this place is worth a try despite its steep prices.
