This tourist destination bears Eleuterio Gentap’s mother-in-law’s name. Gentap works as the landscaper for the flower garden in addition to being a councilman in the barangay. The most widely used and spoken language in the Visayas is Cebuano, where the word “buwak” translates to “flowers.” As a result, “buwakan” now refers to a beautiful landscape. It is obvious from the name that it is a paradise for flower petals. The majority of plantitos and plantitas will consider this to be heaven because the plants are all in good health.
It has gorgeous scenery with lots of vibrant blooms. Alejandra includes a Bali-inspired installation, colorful stairs, and a steel bridge with a beautiful mountain in the distance.
