This reminds me so much of the flower farms in Taichung, Taiwan and I’m glad that Philippines has its own version now. So while I wait for the perfect opportunity to travel to Europe or go back to Japan for the Cherry Blossoms, I booked a ticket to Manila next month to personally see the Philippines’ version of the Garden of Eden.
Located on high elevation, Atok’s weather is chilly which makes it perfect for a summer getaway. the municipality also thrives in farming vegetables such as carrots, potatoes, broccoli, sweet peas and cabbages. A lot of unique flora can also be found here. Take a look at some of the photos.

So last month, we traveled to Atok to see the northern blossoms for ourselves and it did not disappoint. I really loved the vibe in Atok and weather is cooler here compared to Sagada or Baguio. I suggest that you stay there overnight if you want to witness the spectacular sunrise.
Heads up! Just like any flowers, the flora here also has its season. I was told that the best time to go here is between the months of February to April when the cabbage roses are in full bloom. When we went. I saw some parts of the farm being harvested already and flowers start to wilt. Nonetheless, the place still managed to look magical in the morning. It looked straight off a Korean drama. hahaha! Here’s what we came up with.
