We stopped at the Rumah terbalik after the 3 days visit to Kundasang. However, we did not get in as we felt the entrance fees are freaking expensive.

What a waste of time. The place was boring and nothing much to see. 30 minutes max and got bored after a while. Had to pay an entrance fee which was a waste of money. Can't take pictures inside the house. Nothing much to see.

Not much activity can be done here except visiting the house without taking selfie or image inside but only outside. Price could be little expensive if u purchase together with the 3D entrance. The moment u enter, a guy will take a photo of you....More

It’s located beside the 3D Wonders Museum in Tamparuli about 30 minutes drive from Kota Kinabalu. It was my first time being in an upside down house. It was nothing to shout about, but the message behind its construction was humbling.
