    Manado is beautiful. It is not too well developed,but is really enjoyable. The people are fantastic. The whole area is renowned for coral reefs, and scuba and snorkelling are big sports there. There are several places to stay, the Barracuda Diving Club (you don't have to dive), Froggies on Bunaken, which is a national heritage area, and for a hotel try the Golden Tulip Beach Resort. Quite reasonable. Enjoy.

    As i know there is no direct flight Kuala Lumpur - Manado. You should fly to Jakarta first. Then take flight Jakarta - Manado. You can check on http://www.bouraq.com. Have a nice vacation, Rini

    the best dive operations around Manado are Eco Divers operating from Tasik Ria Resort, very reasonably priced, great food, great diving (I stayed and dived with them in April 04) Murex Divers has a good reputation too, but I have not stayed with them. If you want to stay on Bunaken Island, I would suggest Froggy Dive (if you can get a room). MH operates via Kota Kinabalu twice a week. Silk Air has direct services from SIN, check their website, they have specials to Manado which are valid for travel until the end of November. cheers, Sybille
