Comprehensive budget travel guide to Abra Layugan Garden includes tips and advice on things to do

Abra (Ilokano: Probinsia ti Abra; Tagalog: Lalawigan ng Abra) is a landlocked province of the Philippines in the Cordillera Administrative Region in Luzon. Its capital is Bangued, and is bordered by Ilocos Norte on the northwest, Apayao on the northeast, Kalinga on the mid-east, Mountain Province on the southeast, and Ilocos Sur on the southwest.

Abra for a long time had been a blank spot on the Philippine tourism map. It is often skipped due to news of killings and partly because of its location in North Luzon. It is sandwiched between two very popular tourist destinations - Ilocos in the west and the Cordilleras in the east. But now Abra is becoming one of the best tourist destinations with huge arrays to choose from, old churches, long bridges, mountain ranges, magnificent waterfalls, food and a lot more.  

Do not let your eyes fool you. The pictures below was not taken from the Netherlands, rather, it is a new attraction in the Philippines that resembles the beauty of the tulip gardens in the said European country.

Tourists are now flocking to LAYUGAN GARDEN in Bucay, Abra to see at least 10,000 tulips of varying colors made of plastic and light up during the night.

The garden, which opened in January this year, is owned by the town’s former mayor Victorino Barona Jr. Barona got the idea of building a garden full of tulips when the latter visited the 10,000 Roses Cafe in Cebu.

Instead of roses, the former mayor decided to go with tulips and even went to Davao to do some research on where to order the flowers.

LAYUGAN GARDEN serves as a new attraction for tourists in Abra. The said garden is open everyday from 9:00 AM until 9:00 PM. Entrance fee is at P20 during the morning and P30 at night.

Here are some pictures of The LAYUGAN GARDEN:
