From Tangkoko National Park to Bunaken Marine Park 7 days
Day 01 :Arrival Manado – City Sightseeing - Tomohon

Arrive at Sam Ratulangi International Airport in Manado (MDC). While heading through immigration, baggage claim and customs, be greeted by the local guide. The airport is named after the Minahasan politician, journalist, teacher and Indonesian independence hero Sam Ratulangi, who is well known in the county for his saying “man lives to help others live”. Before heading to the Minahasa Highlands however, go for a short exploration of Manado City. A short walk heads to the city centre. From here, walk from the Arabian quarter through Chinatown to an area known as “Brokerage Street” where many locals meet for coffee. Then continue to the city centre where the walk ends by the centrum Church and the WWII memorial there. The favorite dessert of the Manado people is Klapper tart, which is kind of a “fusion dish” consisting of western style butter tart filled with coconut custard. Taste and enjoy this sweet dessert with a cup of coffee or tea at one of the town’s best-known places for the specialty (the order of visits may be changed according to traffic or preferences. At some times, it can be advantageous to visit the Klapper tart bakery first). Continue to the small town of Tomohon in the Minahasa Highlands for check-in
