Featured Houses

All flipped out in Siofok, Hungary

My first experience was in the Balaton region of Hungary. The town of Siofok lies in Somogy County on the southern bank of the beautiful Lake Balaton.

These unusual houses are not only built and furnished upside down, but they are also slightly tilted at around 7 degrees. From the moment you enter the house, you’re flipped at an angle. Thus, gone is your comfort zone of walking on at least a flat surface! The combination of the tilt and the upside-down interior is quite an unusual experience.

In addition, the Siofok experience has a spiral staircase that takes you straight to the top level. Feeling disorientated as it is, the staircase was sufficient reason for taking it slowly, and not rushing the experience!

Travel Tip

  • Not wheelchair friendly, or for people having difficulty walking.
  • You can only pay in cash, the Hungarian Forint. Set aside about 20 minutes for sightseeing and taking photos. 
  • For updated info on opening hours and entrance fees, visit their website.

Review

Not an impressive view from the street, but once you're inside the house is right in front of you. A brief but unusual experience one should have at least once in your life. No other amenities, just the house. -July 2021

Walk on the ceiling in Hartbeespoort , South Africa

It's a bit overpriced to see the house. However, if you pack a picnic basket, there are plenty of picnic spots and jumping castles for the kids to play. So, to get value for your buck, spend the day. I spotted a few BBQ facilities too! There is a sign indicating a souvenir shop, ... still looking for that one! -January 2022

I guess once you’ve been inside one topsy-turvy house, you can comfortably say you’ve had the experience. Another bucket list item checked off!

However, I wanted to compare what I’ve seen before with other similar concepts. And so, I visited South Africa’s upside-down house up north in the Hartbeespoort region.

I was amazed by the creativity of the design. It must have taken months to complete, if not years. Like Siofok, the concept was similar but at least the staircase was not that daunting. 

In addition to the upside-down house, the Hartbeespoort venue combined the attraction with great family-orientated facilities, such as the picnic area and the playground for the kiddies.

And so the adventure begins in Antalya, Turkiye (Turkey)

First, a short intro to Antalya, once a Roman port in Turkiye. Antalya brings up visions of blue waters, amazing holiday resorts, large hotels overlooking the beaches, and a yacht-filled Old Harbor. No wonder then that Antalya is known as the Turquoise Coast.

To get to Antalya you can fly to Antalya’s Airport (AYT),

  • which is about 90 minutes flight time from Istanbul;
  • and around four hours from Bodrum’s airport (BJV). If you are on holiday in Bodrum you could easily extend your trip to include the beauty of Antalya.

Something I really love about Antalya’s topsy-turvy house is that Antalya has onsite staff, and they are most helpful in showing you around – even taking pictures at an affordable rate. Usually, I don’t go for such a photo session, but I reckon it is necessary for this instance. It makes for great memories with the entire group in one photo. 

Also, they give you fun tips on how to hang like spiderman and other poses which in the end turn out to be amazing photos. 

Antalya’s upside-down house sure is a fun place to go with a group of friends.

Topsy-Turvy in Huashan 1914 Creative Park, Taipei

The park is usually open 24 hours, so there is no reason to miss this popular and creative attraction.

The Park was renovated, taken over by the Taiwan Cultural-Creative Development Co. Ltd., renamed Huashan 1914, and put under its management in 2007. Since then, a naturally creative environment has been developing. The main creative arts hub in Taipei nowadays is Huashan 1914, which also acts as the venue for the biggest cultural events in Taiwan. Examples include the BiBo student design expo and the Simple Life music festival. Huashan 1914 serves as a link to a distinctive architectural heritage and the beating creative center of Taiwan today.
