10,000 Roses and more - Cordova, Cebu, Philippines
10,000 Roses Cafe in Cordova
Have you been to the very famous destination among local tourists in Cebu? The ten thousand roses (10,000) has now become one of the most famous tourist destinations in the island of Cebu. Most locals flocked their way to visit the popular site with ten thousand roses. The place is a cafe very near Lantaw Floating Restaurant, a popular restaurant in the municipality of Cordova. Cordova is near Lapu-Lapu City.
Located in Barangay Day-as, Cordova, the 10,000 Roses clearly put Cordova in the map once again as this site is inevitably drawing more and more local tourists since the day it opened its doors early this year.
The white roses are not real roses, they are powered by LED.
In my opinion, the best time to get there is on weekdays as the place is still flocked with many local tourists on weekends. We went there on Sunday and we must have arrived there on a better time on a Sunday, we get there at past 6:00pm. On weekends, best time to get there is between 4:00pm to 5:00pm then just relax and enjoy the view on the other side near the entrance as seen on the video below.
It is best to bring your vehicle with you. You know you're near when you see a lot of cars parked near the signage that welcomes you to Barangay Day-as. (Parking could be a headache on weekends.) From the parking area, walk your way towards the cafe.
From SM City Cebu Terminal, ride a V-hire (van) going to Cordova (P35/pax) then ask to be dropped at Cordova Grandmall. From there, ride a tricycle going to Lantaw (P10/pax). Mototorbikes (habal-habal) are aplenty at the vicinity to bring you back to your place or desired destination.
Hire a taxi to bring you there and ask to be dropped at 10,000 Roses. Assuming the driver does not know where it's at, ask to be dropped at Lantaw Floating Restaurant instead. The roses are a step away from there.
