Wow you have totally sold me Manado! It was one of the places i may be assigned to from a potential job years ago which i have disliked the possibility of as i have never really found something attractive or exciting from the web about it, especially google images. I thought it was just some sleepy town never heard of from my country, Philippines - where we only know of jakarta and bali. Now i have seen your photos, wow it's actually not bad at all! Manado is a very beautiful place with many beautiful people!
oh yes, its such a heartbreaking to see that Manado have so many beautiful potential places to share to the world and so many nice beautiful people in but we dont have recognition like jakarta and Bali... its a small city indeed but we have so many great nature places to explore, esp with the international class sea garden and not even to mention beautiful and nice people here... just come here and stay a couple of days you will like manado immidietly
