The Houses of the Dead

Near where we are staying is Cebu Memorial Park or Cempark, some call it the Chinese Cemetery. It is a nice place to go walking, clean, quiet and no one to bother you. It also has many interesting crypts and mausoleums as it seems the Chinese like to be especially ostentatious in burial

Looks like a regular cemetery doesn’t it?

CemPark has a road around the perimeter. Following it will lead you to many interesting and unusual grave sites.
