The Qingming Festival (also known as Pure Brightness Festival or Tomb-Sweeping Day) is set aside as a day to offer sacrifices to one’s ancestors. To understand the Chinese funeral customs, our guide Janny Chyn will show us China’s only Funeral Industry Museum. This modern museum offers an overview of the funeral business in China. During this guided tour, we’ll begin to understand Chinese funeral culture, hear amazing stories, and learn funeral history. This is an exclusive offer as the museum does not have regular opening hours and finding the entrance is not easy. As appointments for this museum are complicated and must be arranged in advance, it is best to take part in a guided tour from a funeral culture expert for this unique experience.
