Ecotourism is Manado’s biggest attraction. Scuba diving and snorkeling in the gorgeous waters of the nearby island of Bunaken has won fans from all over the world. And spots of awesome beauty such as Lake Tondano, Lokon, Volcano, Klabat Volcano and Mahawu Volcano are some of the natural spectacles that tourists don’t miss when visiting Manado.
Another hit with tourists is the Ban Hin Kiong Temple, especially during the festive Chinese New Year when the area comes to life.
For those looking for a special memento to take home, or for a unique gift for that special someone, souvenir shops along B.W Lapian Street are a definite must-see!
