3.6/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web
See the final resting place of Chinese citizens buried during the period of Spanish colonization at Chinese Cemetery. As the Chinese people were forbidden from burying their loved ones in Catholic cemeteries during this time, the community had to build their own cemeteries. Wander through the city's second oldest cemetery, which looks like a town, with streets, named walkways, and tombs built to look like homes. Some of the tombs even have air-conditioning, bathrooms, and security guards. To visit Chinese Cemetery on your trip to Manila, use our Manila travel itinerary maker.

  • For Chinese people actually had sacrificed by Japan. Not so much tourists, were all local people. People getting bored in the Philippines such as stimulating location?

  • Impressive contrast between the cemetery and slums across the road. Relatives of the dead often hire people from the slums and they are resting, walking, eating, sleeping and who knows what else.)) At the entrance was greeted by Grampa, he suggested I take it as a guide, because everyone there knows, because he was born there:) But, completely, without a guide, though, with him, maybe it would be more interesting. Recommend!

  • beautiful things to see if we take the time to visit, quiet and relaxing, impressive by the number of tombs and their size, of real houses.

  • I advise you to visit, it's great! So grand palaces in contrast to the slums of Manila. You need R.Papa Station of LRT1. The entrance to the left of the station if you face the road
  • The location is breathtaking. Many residents live on the streets of Manila, and then built the palaces of the deceased. It is a two and three storey marble usypal′ni. The entrance is to the left and slightly above the hospital. Don't get fooled on tricycles. You can reach on foot. We walked around the whole territory of all cemeteries in a clockwise direction and know this))) we went in the wrong direction. You need Felix Street Haerta road sign it.
