The beauty of Manado extends beyond the depths of Bunaken.

Angga Roni Priambodo   23 November 2016 18:00 - Two things may come to mind when you hear the word "Manado": spicy, delicious food and Bunaken. We sure aren't going to contest the former — the region's penchant for spices in their meals is perhaps only second to Padang's — but when it comes to tourism destinations, this part of Indonesia offers so much more to explore that calls for more than just a few short days spent in Bunaken. 

Here are 10 great spots in North Sulawesi that should be on your list:

1. Tumbak Sea Park.

The place takes approximately three hours to reach from the center of Manado, but once there, one will be spoilt for choice with over 20 great spots to swim and snorkel.

2. Ratotok Beach.

The natural beauty of this area will amaze you.

3. Siladen Island.

This island is not too far away from Bunaken and takes just 45 minutes from Manado.
