Those who frequently travel to Yogyakarta and are looking for something new and interesting to do may consider paying a new tourist attraction a visit.

In a two-story building at Jl. Ring Road Utara 18 in Sleman, Upside Down World Jogja features 12 different themed rooms with real furniture sets, as the name suggests, placed upside down or stuck onto the roof and walls, including beds, sofas, dining tables and toilets.

The result provides a fun photo opportunity as it makes visitors appear to be flying or defying gravity like in a 3D art museum; the difference is that all things featured in the rooms are authentic items you usually find in houses.

"This place was inspired by the animated movie Upside Down," said the attraction's supervisor Femil Wahyu Hardono, as quoted by Tribun Jogja. "The general concept is showcasing rooms in a regular house. But we added a new theme called warung burjo [mung bean porridge stall], which can be found across the city and has become one of the popular characteristics."

Established on July 4, the attraction also has attendants who can assist visitors in finding good angles for selfies. "They will also help visitors take photos for free," said Femil.

Open daily between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m., entry costs Rp 80,000 (US$6) for adults and Rp 40,000 for children, including insurance. The attraction reportedly sees at least 100 visitors per day. A similar site is also available in Bali. (kes)
