Last weekend, we decided to hit the road and drive to Sirao flower farm to check out the Celosia plantation making its way for every tourists’ selfie. I was a bit hesitant to revisit the place given that this is always flocked by a lot of tourists.
I was able to visit Sirao flower farm October of last year when there was a social media craze about how the place looked like the mini-Amsterdam of Cebu. It all started with more or less 10 pigmented Celosia flowers beds in full bloom waiting to be harvested for All Saint’s Day. The harvest never happened since people were crazy about it and a 20.00php entrance fee per person may be a great business for the owners.
Fast forward, a year after the Sirao flower farm has expanded and is now one of the tourist destinations in Cebu. The entrance fee of 20.00 Php also increased to 50.00 php per person.
If you like to get a perfect selfie with the flowers, I suggest visiting the place on weekdays or better yet come early if you’re planning to visit on weekends.
How to get there:
Ride a motorcycle from JY square for 100php.
Travel time is around 30-40 minutes.
