In Taiwanese tradition, when someone is on their death bed, they will not actually die at the hospital. The family will decide when it is the right time to leave and take their loved one off life support. They are put on oxygen and transported back home by and ambulance, and placed on their bed. When they pass away, the body will lay in bed for 10 hours while the family members chant to assist the soul in passing to a happy place.

Overall the Taiwanese funerals are very colorful and elaborate, they often consist of weeks of ceremonies with brass bands, dancing girls and sometimes hired mourners. These people are paid to cry their hearts out for someone else’s deceased relative. This is very common in Taiwan, where people want many mourners at their funeral to make for a good show.
