SLW – 03

North Sulawesi enjoys a tiny share on the top northern tip of the island with Manado as the only advanced city. While this city is not a tourist trap itself, Manado is still worth a tour for its peculiar culinary. Don’t be surprised when you visit food street there as you’ll find lots of grilled snacks made of rats, bats even parts of pythons. Too extreme? Just try the tasty local delicacy easily found along the sidewalks including fried banana with sauce of Roa fish, Tinutuan porridge, The Indonesian pie ”klappertaart” and more.

North Sulawesi has its own diving allure too. It’s named Bunaken Sea Park and it’s located just 45 minutes away from the downtown. The underwater is superlative with more than 300 types of coral and 3000 species of fish. Diving there mainly follow the attractive vertical walls that are packed with abundant sponges and phenomenally colorful life. On your lucky day, you’ll even be able to meet the super rare dugongs and the prehistoric Coelacanth. Check out the beauty yourselves and find more never before seen species at Bunaken.
