Guiguinto's Garden City

If mother nature does not give your place a natural wonder that would make for a tourist attraction, then, you could make one. That was what semed to be on the mindset of Guiguinteños when they conceptualized the Garden City - the municipality’s main tourist attraction. This place features a cornucopia of greens and colorful flowers, huts and other organic fixtures that exemplifies Guiguinteños ingenuity with regards to gardening and both landscaping and hardscaping. It has been the dream and aim of Guiguinto to be conferred the title “The Garden Capital of the Philippines.”


Here are some more photos I have taken of the place:
