Dangwa flower market at night

Colors everywhere! It was the first thought that popped inside my mind. Sights, scents and sounds greeted me as I stepped for the first time into the district known as Bulaklakan ng Maynila. Dangwa Flower Market comes alive at the strike of midnight as blooms from flower-growing regions in Baguio, Laguna and Tagaytay arrive.

The area, located along Dos Castillas and Laong-Laan Streets in Sampaloc, was once a bus terminal. From a bagsakan or drop-off point of flowers from Baguio, it has become what we know of Dangwa today. A central night market where even Manila's most notable florists shop.

Whatever flower it is that you fancy, liliums, sweetpeas or lisianthuses, everything's all here but save your shopping for the night.
