    Unless you are scuba diver, you may not find this city interesting. It is however heaven for scuba divers as it has a few interesting dive sites: Bunaken and Lembeh Strait. There are not many great hotels either. Manage your expectation.

    Manado city is the provincal capital of North Sulawesi. Manado is the starting point for exploration of the Minahasa region's many attractions. Fun-loving and extroverted, the Minahasa people live in neat wood frame houses, with fences and flower gardens, giving Manado a European feel. There is a wide range of hotels and restaurants. Those with an adventurous palate should try the famously hot and spicy Minahasa cuisine. The city's numerous shops and markets are filled with an abundance of consumer goods and agricultural produce, while behind every building are glimpses of emerald hills and azure sea. Inland from Manado, a trip through the Minahasa Highlands will take you to intriguing prehistoric above-ground burial sites, volcanoes, hot springs, the highland lake Tondano and breathtaking panoramas of lush mountains, coffee and coconut plantations, orchid gardens and terraced hillsides.

    The capital of North Sulawesi, Manado has surprisingly poor facilities (hotels are largely overpriced and internet is super-slow) and a population that's shockingly bumptious for a city of half a million people. It's the gateway to Pulau Bunaken, but there's no reason to linger here. The only current international flights are run by Silk Air to Singapore four times a week, though you'll do better booking tickets online rather than at the overpriced travel agents in town.

    I don't really get to visit smaller towns often so this is exciting!
