War cemetery can be reached on foot or car. Do not expect any buses to go up there. Taxi's can be quite pricy. If you like to walk, walk by the lake garden until up the cemetery. You should count 1h30 walking to get there and it's definitely worth it. Not just the cemetery is well maintained but you'll enjoy... More

Very well maintained - a credit to those who look after the cemetery. No litter or rubbish, in a peaceful location.

If you are a war memorial buff it'd be great. As a cemetery or just place to visit much much better is the old graveyard adjoining the church on the walk out of taiping if you ere going to Tesco Mall

Sometimes we need to see first hand the result of the ultimate sacrifice others have made for our benefit. Visiting this cemetery will only take a few minutes, but will have you reflecting for a long while. These young men, mostly in their 20's, died doing their duty. The saddest thing is that a large percentage could never be identified... More

The cemetary is beautiful and very well maintained. But coming here is quite an emotional experience when you see all the tombstones of soldiers who died as young as 18. Even more heartbreaking was the many tombs of unknown soldiers--imagine the parents and wives of these MIA soldiers who never got any closure for their loss, and nowhere to go... More

The picture says it all. I even got the impression i could not walk around but I did not want to. unless you got a specific obsession with memorial cemeteries it ain't nothing much. Much better graveyards just as close to town. Extensive Chinese burial grounds. one for Hokkien. other for Cantonese. they were much more interesting.
