Sirao Flower Garden Travel Guide – Known for its colorful Instagram-worthy rows of Celosia and other variety of flowers, Sirao Flower Farm has been in existent for quite a while now after it became a massive social media sensation in 2015. It received an overwhelming guest from where it started when a couple only planted these plants to be harvested and sold on All Soul’s Day. But it gets to the point where the tourist is uncontrollable that it became a victim of irresponsible tourism caused by human recklessness slowly destroying flowers on the farm.
But recently, we visited the Sirao Flower Farm for the first time and we have to say the Little Amsterdam of Cebu is ready to enchant and attract more visitors. There are now two gardens, the Sirao Pictorial Garden and Camping Site (PGCS) and Sirao Flower Garden just a few meters away from each other. Also, renovations and constructions are continuously ongoing to accommodate a future number of visitors.
How do I get to the Sirao Garden?
* Having your vehicle either a car, motorcycle or bicycle is still the best option to get to the farm, as you’re more control of your time and you won’t be having a hard time going back to the city. Your landmark is Ayala heights, turn right and just follow directions to get to the farm.
* If you’re commuting, just take a jeepney or cab to get you to JY Square Mall, Lahug. Then hire a habal-habal (motor-taxi) that will take you to Sirao Flower Farm. Fare ranges to 200-400 pesos round trip. Just ask the driver how long they can wait so you won’t be paying an additional charge.
* Taxis can also get you the Sirao flower farm but expect the fare would be higher.
