A house standing on its roof and chimney; this attraction is a must-visit on your next trip to Phuket. Entering the house, you will feel like everything is topsy turvy. Your brain tries to make sense of what is happening around you. All the furniture's, cars and households are attached to the ceilings. When you take the picture and rotate it, the results are quirky and goofy. There is colourful living room, a cosy bedroom, a reading corner, the bar and the kitchen. You can get amazing photos including 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. Even the fish swim upside-down in the two aquariums. This place is also available for private photo sessions in the evenings. Complimentary wi-fi is available, so you can instantly share quirky pictures on social media.

A normal garden in this place would have been boring, so that’s why this place has a 1,000 sqm labyrinth. The maze is modified by the presence of seven gates which, offer an amazing view of different tracks. Race with your friends and family to be the fastest to figure a way out of the maze. On average, it takes 10 to 15 minutes to find the way out. There is a separate ticket for the garden maze.

The Chamber of Secrets

This is a real-life ‘room escape’ game, featuring two separate series of rooms: Jenny’s love coordination and room omega. The former can be played by up to four participants and completed within 40 minutes, while the latter can be played by up to six participants and completed within 60 minutes. Just like any other game, there are rules: players are locked in a room and must find clues to help them to find the key or code required to open the door to the next room, then go outside. This game is really fun and challenging and requires teamwork.
