Historical Tour of La Loma, the North Cemetery and Chinese Cemeteries
Fee: Php750.00 including bus ride and snacks.
An event to simply die for, come join my annual Halloween walking tour of the cemeteries. We'll visit the La Loma Church - perhaps Manila's most haunted - before paying homage to several of Manila’s prominent historical figures right where they lay. We'll drop by the final resting places of President Magsaysay, President Roxas, and President Sergio Osmena as well as other personalities like World Flyweight Champion Pancho Villa, Pancit King Ma Mon Luk, and Architects Arcadio Arellano and Juan Nakpil among many many others. So come along with us and spook yourself silly as we roam through the opulent mausoleums and tombs of La Loma, North and Chinese Cemeteries, proving once and for all that you can take it with you. A side trip to the Dimasalang Flower Markets will follow the tour. Book early. Its a small bus.

Reservations are very limited this year.
Meeting point is the Figaro Coffee shop beside the CCP.
