(4.3/5 based on 600 reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: adventure, shopping, wildlife areas
As the largest city in Northern Sulawesi, Manado serves as a tourist gateway to the nearby Bunaken, known for its islands and reefs. Manada sightseeing includes chances to discover old temples, hot springs, national parks, and nature reserves. Be sure to take the short volcano trek to the edge of a steaming lake, take a waterfall tour, and visit traditional villages where you can buy handcrafted souvenirs. Take caution when eating anything in Manado, where they slather most dishes with strong spices unfamiliar to many foreign visitors.

Where to stay

Manado offers accommodations for travelers with any budget, though its prices remain slightly higher than elsewhere in Sulawesi. If you want to enjoy a bit of luxury after roughing it in jungles check out the area's upscale hotels and resorts. On the other end of the spectrum, budget hotels located in the downtown area remain the most economical option, though some establishments offer only basic and somewhat dilapidated rooms.
