Warning: This tour is not for the faint hearted. We started out the tour with a group of three-Ate Venus, Pramil and I but lost each other through the maze. So I just ran from one empty room to another because I was scaring myself and imagining dead people.
Wear sturdy shoes and bring water.
My biggest regret is not hiring a tour guide to walk us through. Sometimes I'd pass a tour guide and eavesdrop. They have sad stories to tell and I wish I could have heard them all.
Admission: 2 USD
Tour Guide: 6 USD
