We were brought here by our guide to visit and experience the massive nice planned mausoleums. We were charged 100 pesos per MPV prior entry.. we just sit in the MPV and drive around because it was raining at that time. Some design of the...More

The graves here are massive... it is safe to walk around here. You may also visit the la loma cockpit which is located not far from here.

If you're looking for a quiet area around the metro, the Chinese Cemetery is a nice place for walking and also taking photos. Interesting Chinese architecture can be found all over the place.

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

Our guide told us that during Spanish colonial occupation, those of Chinese heritage were not allowed to be buried in a Catholic cemetery. One thing that makes this cemetery unique is the fact that some families have made it their permanent address. The cemetery has...More

When you get there. There are sometimes people want to be your guide. Or you can walk around your self. And sometimes there are bikes you can hire to. But the day we went we just walk around for a few hours. If it's hot... More
