    aBoUt indonesia and north sULaWesiSituated between two continents and two oceans, the Indian and Pacific, Indonesia is the worlds larg-est archipelago, comprising some 17,508 islands that stretch across the equator for more than 5,000 miles. Straddling the Equator, Indonesia is distinctly tropical with two seasons: dry and rainy. With its geographical location in Southeast Asia, Indonesia is accessible for visitors regardless of their regions. Indonesia is also a melting pot of different commu-nities, benefiting from centuries of peaceful coexis-tence. Indonesia is a great place to visit, as it offers superb natural beauty, cultural and artistic wealth, and warm hospitality. The diversity and authenticity of cultures and arts, as well as flora and fauna, are precious treasures that can be found throughout different parts of Indonesia.

    North Sulawesi is a land of magnificent coral reefs protecting beaches, mountains and active volcanoes, reminding the islanders and the world of the potential power of one of the earths most awesome forces. The population of the province is around 2.3 million people. The people of North Sulawesi can be classified into four groups: Mi-nahasa, bolaang Mongondow, Gorontalo and the Sangir-Talaud. North Sulawesi is also well-known as the land of smiling people.

    The Dutch have had the strongest influence on the development of the region. First contact with European traders came in the 16th century with the arrival of the Spanish and Portuguese, and with them they brought Christianity. It wasnt until the arrival of the Dutch that Christianity became the predominant religion of the area. The provin-cial capital of Manado is one of the international

    gateways into Indonesia. This province is one of the safest in Indonesia, where people from differ-ent ethnicities and religions live in harmony.

    Most foreign currencies are easily changed at air-ports, banks, hotels or money changers. banking hours are from 08:00 to 14:00 Monday to Friday and from 08:00 to 11:00 on Saturday. banks in hotels usually stay open longer, while money changers are generally open until the evening. ATMs are available in many places, accepting VISA, MASTER, ALTO and more.
