Manado

Manado ©
As the largest city in Northern Sulawesi, Manado serves as a tourist gateway to the nearby Bunaken, known for its islands and reefs.
Change things up with these side-trips from Manado: Tuanku Imam Bonjol Gravesite (in Minahasa), Lembeh Strait (in Bitung) and Tomohon (Kali Waterfall, Lake Linau, &more). There's still lots to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, buy something for everyone on your list at Manado Souvenir, and indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas.

For other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, use the Manado trip itinerary website.

Brussels, Belgium to Manado is an approximately 27-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 7 hours traveling from Brussels to Manado. Traveling from Brussels in September, expect Manado to be much warmer, temps between 38°C and 25°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Mon) to allow time to travel to Maros.
