Walked for about a half hour along 'Millionaire's Road', seeing a cemetery taken to another level. It is not just the large size of the various mausoleums but what amenities can be seen. You see fridges and tables, presumably for when families come to visit....More

There is one "street" in the cemetery where the mausaleums are almost houses, with air conditioning and bathrooms. A quiet stroll thru the cemetery is worthwhile. About 45 min. would be about right.

This is unlike anything I've ever seen. There are houses with bathrooms, chandeliers and some kitchens in one-of-a-kind edifices that showcase the wealth of a family. Only 2 people are generally buried in these unique structures - some with gardens. The 'pauper" area is sad,...More

Very interesting, unique and it is free. You can get a glimpse into Chinese culture through this cemetery. Should not miss when visiting Manila.

Loved our time here (spent a little over an hour walking around solo, no need for a guide if they're too pricey). We were approached by a guide who wanted a staggering 1200 peso for a tour, so instead we perused a large area on...More

In a terrible city like Manila its right on the mark that a graveyard is one of its top attractions. Entrance is free ( because its a cemetery) and you can spend a hour or two strolling around. There are a few shops selling snacks...More

Either with a guide or going as a group, this cemetery has an intriguing array of burial plots - from grand and elaborate 'homes' to humbler dwellings; some of these places also have guardians who keep the 'homes' tidy and clean. Check the buildings that...More

I was amazed at the contrast between the hassle, bustle and noise of Manila, then the calm and tranquillity of the Chinese Cemetery. We walked through the deserted streets looking at the mausoleums of the rich and the smaller shrines of the not so wealthy....More
