Manado North Sulawesi

The capital of the North Sulawesi province, the former stronghold of the Dutch and the cultural center of the Minahasa people, for a long time Manado prospered through trade with the nearby Philippines and the spice trade with the rest of the world. Alas, the bombings of World War II and the suppression of a local insurgency in the 1950s flattened most of Manado's older buildings.


A well-serviced and friendly city with many comfortable hotel and restaurants, Manado is a perfect base for exploring the beauties of nearby tourist destination such as Bunaken National Park, Tomohon, the Lembeh Strait and Tangkoko-Batuangas Natural Reserve. But do not miss the sights inside the city, Public Museum of North Sulawesi gives much more value than its cheap admission ticket and Klenteng Ban Hian Kong, the oldest Buddhist temple in Eastern Indonesia, dated back to 19th century.

Manado can be reached conveniently by plane. Manado's Sam Ratulangi Airport An airy, modern facility last expanded in 2001. The airport fields some international flights to Singapore with visa on arrival possible. There are also frequent flights to Jakarta, Makassar, as well as some flights to Balikpapan, Denpasar (Bali), Ternate (North Maluku) and Sorong (Papua).
