Description

Experience a blast from the past as you join this easy walking tour along the clean and peaceful streets of the Manila Chinese Cemetery, the second oldest cemetery in Manila.

Established from discrimination, the cemetery was built as a resting place for the Chinese citizens who were denied burial in the Catholic cemeteries during the Spanish Colonial period. Since then, the cemetery has been transformed into a city-like landscape with architectural structures representing styles from the 19th century revivalist to the pre-war art deco movement to modern and contemporary design-themes.

Led by your expert guide, see decorated tombs, elaborate mausoleums, and intricately-carved memorial sculptures and learn interesting stories behind each iconic monument and historical marker.

Discover several notable graveyards of famous leaders such as Dee Cheng Chuan, founder of first Chinese bank in the Philippines (Chinabank), the mami king Ma Mon Luk, and Vicente Lim, a Filipino Brigadier General during the World War II.
