Bamboo Forest in Medellin

We went to Medellin’s very own Bamboo Forest after leaving Sa Dagat Beach Camp for the night. It is the newest attraction in Medellin, with the same fresh vibes from Japan and Korea.

This man-made bamboo forest was compared to the Sagano Bamboo Forest or Arashiyama Bamboo Grove in Kyoto, Japan.

On February 25, 2021, Governor Gwendolyn Garcia witnessed the ceremonial opening of the Medellin Bamboo Forest. For only 20 Pesos, you can spend the entire day taking pictures of the magnificent bamboo forest scenery.

What is the best way to get to Medellin Bamboo Forest?

Exact location: Brgy. Luy-a, Medellin, Northern Cebu – located just next to a well-known sugarcane plantation in Medellin.

This is the place to go if you just want to enjoy the scenery and atmosphere. It is a long journey from Cebu City to this place, but it is well worth the effort.
