People are Manado’s best asset. Manadonese are extroverts, warm and happy-go-lucky, drawing visitors naturally into the big family circle. Aptly, the city’s slogan is “Torang Samua Basudara”, meaning:” we are all one family”. No one here is allowed to feel lonely.
Manado, the second largest city on the island of Sulawesi after Makassar, it is the capital of the province of North Sulawesi. This city is one of a kind in Indonesia with its stunning underwater landscape and great mountain panorama. The local people are known for their warm hospitality as well as for the mouth-watering cuisine and unique authentic culture.
In the last two decades, tourism activities have grown significantly. The city has expanded its attractions not only to draw mainstream tourists, but also utilizes its natural splendors as a backdrop for meetings and conventions that come complete with improved access roads and expanded airport. In 2008, Manado hosted the World Ocean Conference, a prestigious international event that confirmed Manado not only as a world class diving destination but also as the center for marine science research. The event also marks Manado as one of Indonesia’s MICE destinations.
With so much to offer, Manado is poised to become a prime MICE destination, and welcomes visitors with that uniqueMinahasan hospitality.
Manado will be the Venue for the ASEAN Tourism Forum (ATF) to be held in January 2012.
