NOTE: For the information of everyone, there are TWO (2) gardens in Sirao. One is the Sirao Pictorial Garden and Camping Site (PGCS) with swimming pool, the other is the original Sirao Flower Garden located just beside the PGCS.
Before the viral hit 10,000 Roses Cafe in Cordova and Buwakan ni Alejandra in Balamban (both, by the way, were first introduced by Sugbo.ph), there was the SMASH HIT Sirao Flower Garden (a.k.a. Sirao Flower Farm). It broke the social media in 2015 and became the most popular attraction in Cebu Transcentral Highway (Busay-Sirao-Balamban), until it became uncontrollable. The garden was “destroyed” by human recklessness.
I must say, it happened for a reason. First, it proved the strong influence and effect social media could do. Second, it was a (hard) lesson learned by the Sirao Flower Garden management and the officials as well. It also became a good reference from the new attractions, and it was the start of serious promotion on responsible tourism.
But now, Sirao Flower Garden is ready to attract more guests as it continuously improves and renovates the whole place. In fact, it now features more “Instagrammable” spots and an infinity pool. They surely know how to please both local and foreign tourists.
Being able to see a garden on top of hill is mesmerizing. It is a must to see if you are doing a tour of Cebu City.
