What travelers say:

This cemetery is different from other cemeteries I have visited. Rows of houses are combined, like a community. The history of this cemetery is also very intriguing. Some people live here, they are the gatekeepers of these family graves. The most beautiful moment is All Souls' Day, when there are trolleys selling food everywhere, and the streets are full of people from all over to miss the dead. Manila is very crowded, but there are some places that are often overlooked by tourists. My top choices for visiting this city are: Ayala, Royal Spanish City and Chinese Cemetery. They embody the uniqueness of Manila. The US Military Memorial Cemetery is very good and touching, but it is similar to the Arlington National Cemetery in a way. But the Chinese cemetery is very different. The various tombs (a few of them are traditional Chinese style) look like real houses, with restaurants, bathrooms, etc., so that families can gather around their ancestors more easily. Some people often come to worship, and there is even a dog guarding here!
