SIRAO FLOWER FARM: A TASTE OF AMSTERDAM

12.18.2017
There's no need for us Cebuanos to travel the Netherlands just to see the famous flower strip in Amsterdam. Resting in a remote area beyond the boundaries of the city lies a bright and colourful garden that has opened its gate since 2015.

Sirao Garden Farm or aptly named as "The Little Amsterdam of Cebu" is situated in the mountain village of Sirao, Cebu City.  It is one of the tourist destinations near the heart of Cebu. Thus, whether you are a local or a tourist, it is one of the go-to places we love because of its proximity to the city.

FLOWERS OF SIRAO GARDEN 

 

Sirao Farm has first gained its popularity for its plantation of the Celosia flower. Celosia comes from the Ancient Greek word, kḗleos, which means "burning". Its flame-like flower head comes in red, yellow, pink colors which makes it more attractive when in full bloom.

The variation of flowers in the farm changed from time to time. But Celosia is a main stay. The garden houses different kinds of  flowers like cleome, gomphrena, buttercup, coleus, cockscom, and my fave, sunflower.



FUN THINGS TO DO


Aside from the plantation of flowers, you will also see the newly added attractions like the windmill, fountains, and statuaries you may enjoy taking pictures on in case you missed to see the vibrant flowers in full bloom or if you came in just right after the harvest.

Other activities you may also enjoy in the flower farm are below:
  • Take Instagram-worthy pictures
  • Wear your OOTD or rent a Dutch costume (available for php 30) and do your own pictorial session
  • Enjoy a picnic with the family (corkage is free) or buy a cold buko juice and banana cue sold from the food stalls outside 
  • Buy some freshly picked flowers or potted plants
