December 2014 - This round of Family trip to Phuket was a free and easy trip. No must-do thing for us, no must-go place to visit… no fixed plans! After reading through some traveller’s blogs, I got to know about this Baan Teelanka. Well, looks unique to me, as it is an Upside Down House! Baan Teelanka opened in April 2014 and it is one of the most innovative and original attractions on Phuket Island for now. It is located on the Bypass Road on the northern outskirts of Phuket Town.
Baan Teelanka is a three-storey house built leaning on its roof and the layout of it looks like a standard house to me from outside. It has bedrooms, bathroom, living room, kitchen, etc. and the only difference is that you look as though you are walking on the ceiling! Hehe :) Initially, I was a bit not getting used to it, but the ‘weirdness’ feeling went off soon as everything looked so special to me!
Some of the photos I had turned it so that it looked normal on the screen. In fact, they were all took in an upside down manner!
They have a team of dedicated staff station there, helping you to take photos (outside the building), teaching you how to take the photos in a correct way (inside the building) so that you get to capture the ‘uniqueness’ of the upside down display.
This is not a huge house so the time spends here might not be long. You can explore the A-Maze-in-Phuket, which is behind this Baan Teelanka. However, when we reached there it was already late evening, hence we did not have time to explore The Garden Maze with my Boys. We only managed to visit the Upside Down House during this trip.
A new experience for the Boys with all the things displays in an upside down way and they look ‘amazed’!
