Be Amazed of this Sunflower Maze
Belle Piccio | Jan 03, 2019
You don’t need to wait for summer to see a sunflower. These flowers grow in the Philippines and can still bloom during the rainy season.
We’ve seen a lot of gardens that opened to the public. One of which can be found in Western Visayas. If you’re in Iloilo, you would surely want to visit this sunflower garden.
The Kalan-an sa Garden is located at Brgy. Tinori-an, Barotac Nuevo, Iloilo just along the National Highway.
The garden just had its soft opening last 26 October 2018 and has become a tourist attraction because of its IG-worthy view.
What’s amazing about it? The garden is a sunflower maze!
The restaurant and garden is open daily from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm.
A minimal Php20.00 entrance fee is collected. You can also buy sunflower cuttings for Php40 per cut and Php50 per cut for the special sunflower variety.
You can also buy fresh vegetables that are in season!
