An upside-down building in one of the largest Vietnamese cities draws a great number of visitors who come to this place to experience awe and have surreal pictures.

Located at 44 Ho Xuan Huong Street, Khue My Ward, Ngu Hanh Son District, Da Nang City, Upside Down World is the first of its type in the city, which is the third-largest in Vietnam.

It opened to the public less than a month ago, and has, on a daily basis, attracted more than one thousand tourists, domestic and foreign alike, most of whom are young Vietnamese people.

Each visitor is supposed to pay VND130,000 (US$6) for admission.

The building includes a variety of pleasantly decorated rooms typically included in a modern upper-class house, such as a pink “Hello Kitty” style kitchen and an inviting bathroom.

It also has a supermarket, a restaurant and hairdressing salon, the last two designed to look as they are tilted by 90 degrees.

All the interior equipment is real and becomes firmly attached to the ceiling by plaster, said Duong Anh Khoa, manager of Upside Down World.

Young people flocking here felt amazed to see they were deceptively standing on the ceiling, and mesmerized by colorful smart decorative items in a space which is the reverse of normal world order.

One of their purposes is having the most bizarre photographs published on social media.

“Recognizing this is a new trend, I want to have a unique photo album to be posted on Facebook,” said Ho Thi Trang, 20.

Despite the relatively high fee for students, “[Trang] was willing to pay, as a way to follow the crowd.”

The strange pictures are taken with the camera flipped upside down to achieve the desired effect.

Khoa said that he intends to construct some such buildings in other major cities like Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
