Welcome to Sirao Flower Farm(Garden) – aka Cebu’s Little Amsterdam.
This is one of those successful unplanned trip. Been trying to complete my to do’s as I continue to enjoy my longer vacation here in Cebu. Gemma, one of my highschool buddies initiated this and instead of a simple lunch out/roaming around SM or Ayala, we took the high road! hahaa literally high going up to Busay and beyond! This farm has been on my 2017 bucketlist and missed that chance last year, so it excites me to finally pay a visit!
How to get there:
Which ever part of Cebu you are from, Colon Street will be the best starting point. Head over to the side of UV (University of Visayas) and catch a jeepney #04C and stop at JY Square. Fare is at 7/- pesos.
From JY Square a line of motorcycle (habal-habal) driverswill approach you, offering their service. One way to Sirao Flower Farm costs 75/- pesos per person. That means 150/- pesos 2 way. Each motorcycle can take 2 persons.
But we took the advantage of being there so we agreed on visiting Temple of Leah as well. Which costs us another 75/- pesos. So this trip basically charged us 300/- pesos each (1 person fare) for motorcycle transportation alone. The driver anyway will be stand by and will wait for you to finist. For this trip our habal-habal driver is named Randy. Sharing Temple of Leah visit in the next blog.
This ride took us around 30-45 minutes. We started at Sirao first then Temple of Leah.
Taxis are also available, but expect the costs to be higher than this! The last time I heard it runs up to 1500 – 2000 pesos (two way)

A little background:
Sirao Flower Farm is also coined as Cebu’s Little Amsterdam. It has two windmills that seemed to bring you to that Amsterdam feels. Celosa flowers in red, yellow, fuchsia, and orange, sunflowers, gumamela, roses, french marigold ahito are those beautifully ararnged flowers that will greet you once you enter the site. The hillside landscape takes you to a bed of – – – flowers! Fresh air, colorful sight and the ambiance is just superb. These flowers especially the celosa could last up to 8-10 weeks in full bloom.
