Cebu Sirao Garden : How to Get There

sirao garden cebu city

Sirao, a place in Cebu known for its colorful arrangement of flowers that blooms around the late months and early months of Cebu.


It is also known as Mini-Little Amsterdam of Cebu is situated in a mountain barangay of Cebu City, about 30-45 minutes away from JY Square in Lahug.

HOW TO GET THERE

OPTION 1

  1. Entry Point is in Mactan Cebu Airport.
  2. Ride a Mybus from Mactan Cebu to SM Cebu City. Fare is around  40 PHP  ( SGD 1 ,$0.8, € 0.7). Travel time is around 30mins to 1 hr
  3. Then, Ride a jeep with a route code 04L. Stop at JY Square Mall. Fare is around  7 PHP  ( SGD 0.2 ,$0.15, € 0.12). Travel time is around 20mins to 45mins (depends on the traffic).
  4. Then, ride a Habal-Habal (local term of a motorcycle for hire). You can easily locate the Habal-Habal drivers because they are shouting Sirao or Temple of Leah. Or in my case they will ask you.

TIPS!
Habal-Habal drivers mostly offer 150 PHP  ( SGD 3.75, $3 ,€ 2.5)/person for one-way tour going to Sirao and Temple of Leah. If you only want to go to Sirao Garden, they would ask for a lesser amount of 100 PHP  ( SGD 2.5 ,$2, € 0.12)/person.

OPTION 2

  1. Entry Point is Pier 1 Cebu.
  2. Then, Ride a jeep with a route code 02B. Stop at Colonnade Mall. Fare is around  7 PHP  ( SGD 0.2 ,$0.15, € 0.12). Travel time is around 15mins to 30mins (depends on the traffic).
  3. After that, you can ride a jeepney with route codes 17B, 17C, 17D, 04H, and 04C. Fare is around  7 PHP  ( SGD 0.2 ,$0.15, € 0.12). Travel time is around 30mins to 45mins (depends on the traffic).
  4. Stop at JY Square Mall. Be sure to tell the conductor of the jeep or the driver.
  5. Then, ride a Habal-Habal (local term of a motorcycle for hire). You can easily locate the Habal-Habal drivers because they are shouting Sirao or Temple of Leah. Or in my case they will ask you.

TIPS!
Habal-Habal drivers mostly offers 150 PHP  ( SGD 3.75, $3 ,€ 2.5)/person for one-way tour going to Sirao and Temple of Leah. If you only want to go to Sirao Garden, they would ask for a lesser amount of 100 PHP  ( SGD 2.5 ,$2, € 0.12) /person.

OPTION 3

  1. Taxi!!! Although it is expensive, it gives you the convenience and it is a much faster way to go to the locations (if time is not on your side). 

MAP FOR REFERENCE

 

 

Also, you can negotiate the price to  80 PHP ( SGD 2 ,$1.6, € 1.3)/person (one- way tour) going to Sirao and additional fare of 25 PHP ( SGD 0.63 ,$0.5, € 0.42)/person for a side trip going to Temple of Leah. 

Although every option has its perks and disadvantages, the Option 1 and Option 2 is my go-to.
