10,000 Roses Cafe is one of the newest attraction in Cebu that catches the interests of the locals and visitors because of its ambiance. The cafe is owned by a Korean national, Miguel Cho, who is a stepson of the current mayor. Located at Barangay Day-as in Cordova, the cafe captured the interests of the people because of the field of 10,000 white LED powered roses that could be perfect for an Instagram backdrop.
How to go to 10,000 Roses Cafe?
There are a lot of ways to get to 10,000 Roses Cafe. You can hire a taxi cab but that will surely cost you more. If you are from Cebu City, I prefer if you take a V-hire from SM City Cebu to Cordova. It can save you the hassle of transferring between jeepneys. The V-hire fare would be Php 40.00. Ask the V-hire driver to drop you off at Gaisano Grand Cordova just across the Iglesia ni Cristo church or you can get off at their terminal. From there, you can ride a trisikad to 10,000 Roses. Don’t fall from the trisikad drivers that will ask for a higher fare price because the fare should be Php 10.00.
If you want to go there and save money on the fare, you can take the other option which is to take the jeepney. From SM City Cebu, ride a jeepney to Parkmall. the fare is Php 7.00. Once you get to Parkmall, you need to transfer jeepneys in the terminal that will take you to Lapu-Lapu City. There 3 Jeepney Routes for Lapu-Lapu City. Take the ones with Tamiya/MEPZ 2 and Opon Mercado routes. The fare would be Php 7.00. If you are taking the Tamiya/MEPZ 2 route, ask the driver to drop you off at the traffic light. For the Opon Mercado route, your drop off point is SuperMetro just beside General Milling Corp. The fare to Cordova for the two routes would be Php 10.00. Do not forget to ask the driver to drop you off at Gaisano Grand Cordova and hire a trisikad to 10,000 Roses Cafe.
There is an environmental fee of Php 20.00 that will be collected by the LGU at the entrance of 10,000 Roses Cafe. This is to help control the traffic and people who want to visit the place.

I have been receiving comments about how to go home from 10k Roses so I decided to update the blog to help my readers.
Here is how you can back to the city from the cafe.
From the cafe, ride a trisikad to take you to the highway or the main road. There is are V hires that will go back to the city but I am not sure of the exact time for their last trip. Usually, it would be 8 pm to 9 pm.
You also have the option to take a jeepney that is bound for the Lapu-Lapu City terminal, just make sure to take the MEPZ route. The jeepney’s route in the terminal is Mandaue/Parkmall. Just choose your drop off or ask your driver to drop you off where you can ride a jeepney going back to Cebu City.
Mactan Airport to 10k Roses
There are taxis available at the airport but if you are looking for a way to save from the fare, you can take the yellow jeepneys inside the airport. These jeepneys are for Opon Market where you can ride another jeepney bound for Cordova. You can also ask the driver to drop you off outside of the airport where you can ride a jeepney bound for Cordova.
If you are still unsure, you can use Uber or Grab.
I hope this helps.
