If you’re in Manila, ask your hotel concierge about the unique Chinese Cemetery. The final resting places of residents here are built to resemble homes and the entire cemetery looks like a neighbourhood. Some shrines even come complete with their own rooms and toilets. And for those who prefer a more high-rise type of burial, there’s even an “apartment” building. A point to note though is that this is still a cemetery and visitors should at all times remain respectful.
