What to expect

Touring a cemetery would seem like an unusual way to spend a free day in the city, but in the streets of Old Manila where the Chinese-Filipinos make up the largest Chinese community in Southeast Asia, you'll discover a long history of legacies left behind by affluent families and individuals that have been laid to rest in these grounds. Together with famed Filipino tour guide Ivan Man Dy, make your way around the age-old gravestones and flamboyant mausoleums as you learn all about the skeletons that lie within this 'city of the dead'. Immerse yourself in the bustling culture of the mini-community and witness the economic strength of the Chinese while you marvel at the most eclectic funerary architecture you'll ever see in your life!
