Sirao Garden-Little Amsterdam, Cebu

The fiery red and yellow celosia blooms trended in social media some time after Sirao Garden, which used to sell only cut celosias for occasions like All Souls’ Day, opened the garden to the public. The owner, a former flight attendant, designed a garden inspired by her visits to Europe, and called Sirao Garden “Little Amsterdam.” 

The garden, which has now expanded to over one hectare, has windmills, and many perfect spots for photos like brightly-colored cars, a giant sunflower, a giant open hand, and more. Sirao also has other colorful blooms like pink queens or spider flowers, sunflowers, and many others. Like Northern Blossom, Sirao also has a perfect mountain backdrop.

Julyan’s Farm, San Narciso, Zambales

Compared with the other flower fields featured here, the sunflower field in Julyan’s Farm is quite small. Still, it draws visitors during the sunflowers’ full bloom. What makes the farm special is its autism advocacy: one of the people planting, watering, and looking after the sunflowers and the herbs and vegetables in the farm is Julyan Harrison, a young man with autism. 

The farm is part of Zambawood, a resort built initially as Julyan’s playground and workplace, where he can surf, make art, farm, cook, and clean. The resort is now open to the public.

Julyan’s Farm is a perfect stopover if you are going on a Zambales beach trip.
