As the largest city in Northern Sulawesi, Manado serves as a tourist gateway to the nearby Bunaken, known for its islands and reefs.
Get out of town with these interesting Manado side-trips: Lake Tondano (in Tondano), Tomohon (Mt Lokon, Lake Linau, &more) and Bitung (Lembeh Strait & Tangkoko National Reserve). Next up on the itinerary: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, pause for some photo ops at Christ Blessing, take in the views from Soekarno Bridge, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.
