Manado is almost synonymous with Bunaken Marine National Park in the eyes of worldwide travellers. Indeed, Bunaken was often claimed as one of the best diving sites in the world. But Manado still has so much more to offer. Its charms manifest in the range of cultural, historical, and religious attractions on offer here - a testament to the rich and long history of Manado’s importance in the country. The delightful cuisine from this area is another surefire winner.
