Travel Diary: Sirao Garden, The Little Amsterdam Of Cebu

During my recent trip to Cebu the other weekend. My best friend Antong took me and my hubby to Sirao Gardens, a forty minutes drive from the city. Going up to Sirao, brought a lot of college memories. It is the same road you take when you go up to Tops in Cebu but only farther. Speaking of Tops, I should visit that place again, it’s been so long since I last went there. Anyway, going back to Sirao, we actually went there before lunch time on a Saturday and the weather was perfect. It wasn’t too sunny and wasn’t too cloudy either.

There are actually more than one garden up in Sirao but we only went inside one which is this one you see on my photos and also the first garden once you get there. There was an entrance fee of p50 ($1) per person.

The view was breathtaking up there and after admiring the scenery and the flowers, I actually started sneezing. And then I remembered my doctor told me to stay away from pollens specially this time of the year. Well, that’s after getting near the blooms as you can see on the photos, I have probably inhaled a ton of pollens right then and there.


We decided not to go to the other gardens which also has plenty of beautiful blooms and unique structures as seen on the photo above Taken from a far.
If you followed me on my Instagram account then you have probably seen I suffered from pollen allergies. Yup! That explains all the sneezing, watery eyes, congested nostrils and being drowsy. That being said, I won’t be coming back to Sirao Garden anytime soon or not ever. Hahaha! Simply because I don’t wanna be dealing with a week of crazy allergies.

I would strongly suggest Sirao Gardens if you are into nature and love the greens and fresh air up in the mountains. It really gives us that calming feeling. And of course, if you want to add more colorful photos to your Instagram feed then Sirao is a go to whenever you’re in Cebu.

Depending on the flowering season, I suggested you try going around all the gardens if you have all the time and given you don’t have any pollen allergies like I do. And don’t forget to try the famous sweet corn Sirao is known for.

Well, that’s it for today guys. For my outfit details, check out my previous post here. Hope you find this post helpful in a way. Happy Thursday!

Much Love,

Sheila 💗
