Baan Teelanka in Phuket Town

Phuket Upside Down House

Baan Teelanka opened in April 2014 and is one of the most innovative and original attractions on Phuket Island. Located on the Bypass Road on the northern outskirts of Phuket Town, Baan Teelanka features no less than three exciting attractions/activities to entertain the whole family. Baan Teelanka itself is a three-storey house built leaning on its roof. It is adorned with a maze-shaped garden in its backyard. The Chamber of Secrets @BaanTeelanka is the third activity that could be enjoyed here, with two rooms from which visitors have to escape from by finding clues and resolving puzzles in a way to open the doors.

Initiated, designed and managed by a charming Swiss-Thai couple, this well-thought-out project brings visitors into another dimension and offers sensational photo opportunities. In addition to the Upside Down House, A-Maze-in-Phuket, and the Chamber of Secrets @BaanTeelanka, the small complex features a modern coffee shop (selling drinks, snacks and sweets) and a souvenir store. Puzzling yet fascinating and fun, Baan Teelanka aims at children and adults alike as it makes everyone feel like they went too far down the rabbit-hole.

The Upside Down House

Baan Teelanka is the first and only (for now) upside-down house in Thailand. It is 13m high and outstanding research and imagination has gone into making it very detailed. Leave all logic behind as you enter the house from its roof, passing through the attic to reach the second floor. You can visit all the rooms like in a standard house; the only difference is that you do so while walking on the ceiling!

See three bedrooms (including a children's bedroom), living room, kitchen, and bathroom, with all furnishings and decorations hanging from the floor. Even the fish swim upside-down in the two aquariums! Another flight of stairs takes you to the third floor: the garage and utility room. This third-storey also offers a great view onto the maze situated at the back of the house.


An upside-down house could not have a normal garden, so Baan Teelanka’s garden features a 1,000sqm labyrinth. A-Maze-in-Phuket can see its design modified by the presence of seven gates which, according to their positions, offer an astonishing range of different tracks.

On average, it takes 10 to 15 minutes to find the way out. Don’t worry: there’s no Minotaur chasing you in Baan Teelanka’s maze!

The Chamber of Secrets @BaanTeelanka

The Chamber of Secrets @BaanTeelanka 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. The rules of a room escape game are simple: 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 to outside. Chamber of Secrets @BaanTeelanka is really fun and challenging and requires the input of each participant to find the way out, as different types of assets – sense of observation, calculation, logic, and more – are necessary to succeed.

Baan Teelanka, A-Maze-in-Phuket, and the Chamber of Secrets @BaanTeelanka are three enjoyable attractions/activities for the whole family. The three of them can be visited and enjoyed in about half a day. The upside-down house is also available for original private parties in the evening, and for private photo sessions (wedding photos for instance) outside of normal opening hours. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available throughout the property and allows visitors to instantly share their quirky pictures on social media.
