  • Large fort from the Dutch time. The front is decorated with garden, bridges and stone. This is an imposing fort. Buildings inside the fort are not or not all original. There is a school in the fort.

  • Fort Oranje is a 17th-century Portuguese fort. The Dutch take it over and mark it as the capital of V.O.C. (Dutch East India Company's trade in Asia). The fort located at the center of Ternate city, North Maluku, Indonesia. The fort is the largest in Ternate Island. The government of Ternate recently renovate it and build a nice park in front of the fort.

Where to stay in Ternate

As a relatively new tourist destination, Ternate's housing options are not too plentiful. There are a dozen or so reasonably priced hotels, guest rooms, and bed and breakfasts, but you may not be able to find some amenities, such as WiFi. Some spots do offer buffets, large, comfortable rooms, and even tour guide services--these can be useful, as tour guides are otherwise hard to come by in Ternate.
