Travellers in search of a stylish Phuket beach resort should look no further than the Anantara Phuket Villas. Offering guests a resplendent resort in a strategic location this idyllic rest is perfect for holidaymakers and business travellers.
Tipped to be one of the Phuket’s quirkiest points of interest the Baan Teelanka upside down house is a veritable icon in the area and the island at large. Intriguing and curious at first glance the upside down house of Baan Teelanka resembles a life size toy residence that has been dropped on its head by a callous child. Frequented by locals and tourists alike this unusual local attraction is one of the best reasons to venture beyond the pristine beaches of paradise isle Phuket. Located on a byway that lies nestled between the Siam Niramit and Outlet Village the house is the brainchild of Alex Riva.
Surrounded by a verdant garden visitors must enter the inverted house through the roof which leads them to the household’s attic. From here a stairwell leads one up to the main living area of the one of a kind residence. Featuring furnishings that are typical of any ordinary household every piece of furniture in Baan Teelanka however unusually descends from the ceiling. Walking on the ceiling visitors can observe chairs and other furniture above their heads including an inverted aquarium where even the fish are swimming upside down.
The kitchen and dining room are equally awe-inspiring as everyday utensils and home wares are upturned and descending from the ceiling. The bathroom is another favorite locale of frequent visitors as the venue serves as one of the best locations for a gravity defying photo op. The bedroom is no less quirky as the bed and even the television are placed wrong side up with the latter playing an inverted video clip.
Climbing further up visitors will come across the basement of the house where a garage and a play area for children are predictably upturned. The most popular highlight in this area of Baan Teelanka is of course the life size three-wheeler or tuk tuk that also lies upside down. Behind the house lies ‘A Maze In Thailand’, a garden based maze challenge that is as interesting as it is engaging.
