Best of Manado Guide

Print this guide 
An epicentre of eco-tourism, Manado is a popular spot for scuba diving and snorkeling, especially at Bunaken National Park. Heat your holiday up with a trip to one (or all) of the nearby volcanoes, including Lokon Volcano and Klabat Volcano, then kick it up even further with a Manadonese meal. The people of Manado like their flavours action-packed with tons of spice.
