I am at the very first stage for planning a solo travel in South Est Asia for August 2019.
One of the place I would like to visit is North Sulawesi with the major aim to do snorkeling activity (I am not able to dive), although, if possible, I would also include one day for hiking in nice natural landscape. I should stay 6 nights.
At the moment my preliminary plan is as follows:
- 2 nights in Bukanen
- Transfer to Bangka via Manado.
- 2 nights in Bangka
- Early morning Transfer to Manado for taking a flight to Denpasar.
What do you think about this itinerary?
Do you think that I could substitute one day for including an excursion for hiking in a place close to Manado?
Regarding Bukanen and Bangka, do you have suggestions about best place for accommodation, possibly with possibility to do snorkeling also directly from the beach?
Do you have suggestion about good snorkeling boat excursions/itinerary in both Bukanen and Bangka? Since I travel alone, I would prefer small group excursions.
