Kaisa Heritage Center houses Bahay Tsinoy, a museum showcasing an impressive heritage exhibit in dioramas tracing the history of the Philippine Chinese pre-Hispanic times to the colonial period. Rare prints and photographs, interesting porcelain collection and famous names of Filipino-Chinese in nation building are likewise part of the exhibit.

Open to the public as well is a library containing the most extensive collection of materials and information about the Chinese in the country.

Getting there:
From Quiapo, take a jeepney with PIER (South Harbor) signboard, get off in front of the Manila Cathedral (cor. Andres Soriano formerly Aduana & Gen. Luna Streets).
Turn left and walk another block, Kaisa Heritage Center is right at the corner of Anda & Cabildo Streets.

From Ermita, take a PIER jeepney and get rid off at Anda circle. Access Intramuros through the Andres Soriano (Aduana) gap then turn right at Gen. Luna and walk towards the corner of Anda Street. From here the Center is a short block away.

The most economical but more exciting and more interesting way to Kaisa Heritage Center is by foot. From Rizal Park, follow Orosa Street (north bound) until Puerta Real, the southern entry to Intramuros, the walled city. Stroll the length of Gen. Luna to the corner of Anda Street, then walk the short block to Kaisa Heritage Center.

Aurora Boulevard & Felix Huertas Streets
Blumentritt, Manila

Founded during the Hispanic colonial period to accommodate the Chinese who were not allowed to be buried in Spanish cemeteries, this extraordinary funerary grounds is a rousing 54-hectares expanse impressively lined with unique and magnificent mausoleums. Remarkably, these structures are opulently built, lavishly adorned and furnished, some even annexed with private kitchens and bathrooms with full airconditioning systems, purposively useful during visiting days.

Much of an ancient Chinese tradition to honor the dead, the mausoleums does apparently speak of the socio-economic status of the family as well.

Getting there:
Take the Light Rail Transit (LRT of overhead train) from United Nation (UN) Avenue or Carriedo Station and get off at Jose Abad Santos. From here, the cemetery's south gate is only a few minutes walk.

Philippines Cuisine Characteristics

The traditional way of eating is with the hands, especially dry dishes such as inihaw or prito. The diner will take a bite of the main dish, then eat rice pressed together with his fingers.

This practice, known as kamayan, is rarely seen in urbanized areas. However, Filipinos tend to feel the spirit of kamayan when eating amidst nature during out of town trips, beach vacations, and town fiestas.
