Explore North Sulawesi 

Known as the Land of Smiling People, North Sulawesi has quite a lot to offer. With a jungle trek through Tangkoko National Park, you can see foraging groups of Macaques and Tarsiers clinging to the trees. Have a refreshing dip under one of the spectacular waterfalls, or walk around the caldera of a volcano.
