Yuhico Orchid Garden

Yuhico Orchid Garden is a sprawling five or so hectares of beautifully landscaped garden of lush greenery consisting several varieties of native and hybrid orchids, exotic ornamental plants, palm and fruit-bearing trees. It is quietly nestled in an elevated hillside of Catalunan Pequeño, some 10 kilometers south of downtown Davao City.

What started in 1978 as a mere hobby of Mrs. Teofanna "Fanny" Arindaying Yuhico, the owner, this beautiful Garden eventually blossomed to what it is today - an orchid garden complete with facilities and amenities for business functions and social gatherings. It is now one of the most sought after venue for garden weddings and receptions, birthday parties, anniversaries, field trips, seminars, retreats, recollections, and family reunions.

The tranquil ambiance of the Garden makes it an ideal place to relax and enjoy the magnificent scenery of various ornamental plants, towering trees, and colorful flowers with the picturesque view of Mount Apo, Philippines' highest mountain peak in the background. And, with the smell of fresh air and cool mountain mist, it is a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life.
