Update: As of February 28, 2017, the Sunflower Maze and the Garden Showcase will be temporarily closed due to heavy foot traffic and damages that need to be fixed.
Drop whatever you've got planned this weekend and go on a day trip to Pangasinan instead! We left Manila at 3:30 in the morning and made our way to Tayug just to take in the sights at the new sunflower maze by Allied Botanical Corporation.
We suggest getting there around 7:00 or 8:00 a.m. so you can enjoy the place while it's still cool outside. Most of the things you'll see are made of recycled materials, like old tires and cabinets from their office—the founder's truck is also incorporated in the maze's design.
Once you're done taking selfies with the sunflowers, make sure to search for the secret gardens, and approach one of the representatives so they can tell you about the "Maze Runner Challenge."
The Pallet Garden, which is the crowd-favorite, can be booked for a half-day prenup shoot for only P7,000. While they can't close the entire maze, they can accommodate your shoot and help you avoid photobombers—just remember to book it one to two weeks prior.
