Air Libingan ng mga Bangkay is not your typical Airbnb
Find awesome listings for Marcos' final resting place!
(SPOT.ph) Since its inception in 2008, Airbnb has been serving travelers from all over the world through its database of homestays, bed and breakfasts, and residential properties. An anonymous group comprised of "concerned citizens," as in its disclaimer, played on this concept of residential listings and created a mock-up website called Airlnb, short for Air Libingan ng mga Bangkay.
"Why so sad? Depressed that Ferdinand Marcos is still not buried [at] the Libingan ng mga Bayani? Don’t you worry! We have lots and lots of other burial places for him to choose from!" it says on the homepage. The website goes on to enumerate four other cemeteries that could be the late dictator's final resting place. In true Airbnb style, the listings have photographs, an estimated rate, and even star ratings. In place of the user interface on check in and check out is a box that says "check in" and "never check out." The other features aren't clickable (yet). After all, it's just a replica.
Listed below are cemeteries that the Airlnb suggests with a disclaimer that those "featured on this page don't reflect the views of said individuals."
Loyola Memorial Park
Rates start at P250,000++
"Marcos can have as many monuments built for him as Mrs. Marcos likes in these sprawling and lush burial grounds."
La Loma Cemetery
Rates start at P158,000++
"Condominium-style burial units reminiscent of the overpriced buildings Marcos built during his 20-year dictatorship through questionable loans that you continue to pay until now with your hard-earned money."
Manila Chinese Cemetery
Rates start at P300,000++
"Celebrate Marcos’ Chinese roots! This traditional Chinese cemetery is the ultimate final resting place for his sorry-looking cadaver."
Manila Film Center
Rates start at P280,000++
"Perhaps the most fitting burial ground for Marcos, where many workers were buried alive in his time. Why not let the former dictator join them in their cemented graves so their deaths won’t be for naught? Imelda would be proud!"
