When we arrived in the city of Manado, North Sulawesi certainly hope to find something unique in this city, there’s many special experiences here. Friendly people, nice girls, beautiful beaches, the charm of Bunaken Marine Park, a rare animal Tarsius or Tangkasi (a type of small monkey) as well as delicious cuisine. The tour was never finished!

It's never finished! Take a trip to the mountains around 1-2 hours drive through the city of Tondano and arrived in a city district, Tomohon, cool town fresh air at the foot of Mount Lokon and Mount Mahawu with various rare species of flora and fauna that found only in North Sulawesi, such as Nepenthes masarangense, Bufo celebensis (horned frogs), Ficus minahassae and Schefflera actinophylla which is the native flora of Tomohon.
