Terrazas de Flores Botanical Garden is the first of its kind in the country. This lovely botanical garden and its flower terraces boast some 127 species of the region's local flower varieties. The garden was built by the local farmers using the same traditional technique of interlocking stones reminiscent of the Banaue Rice Terraces. The cool mountain breeze and stunning view make it the perfect escape from the madness of the city. Besides the picturesque garden, it also features cabanas and viewing decks, as well as a humble cafe. Entrance fee is only PHP100 per person.
Terrazas de Flores highlights
Terrazas de Flores Botanical Garden provides a relaxing experience with benches and flower-covered trellises and footpath canopies. You can see butterflies and bees flutter around from flower to flower. It can also make for a good educational experience as has markers identifying the different flora. Some of these markers are also engraved with random poems and inspiring quotes. There are cabanas that you can rent for PHP100 per hour. It is free if you purchase PHP1000 worth of food and beverage in the cafe. We really liked lounging in the cabana as it's furnished with a couch and table with curtains for privacy. You can hear soft music playing from the viewing deck or cafe. Terrazas de Flores Botanical Garden's cafe serves light meals and desserts. Coffee is good and a cheese and cold-cut platters with wine can be had too.
