Manado for family getaway

Yayyy I finally had family getaway last week to Manado, North Sulawesi, Indonesia. It was so BEAUTIFUL, indeed! Would love love love to go back someday perhaps with Alex Donald Sanger...FYI he is Manadonese (mix chinese) but never set his foot there *someday we will dear :) Anyway, if you want to or plan to going there someday here is my go list, hope it'll suit you :

1) Bunaken for snorkeling or diving
2) Tandu Rusa at Bitung, meet Tarsius (read: the smallest monkey in the world)
3) Waruga Sawangan, ancient tomb of Minahasa people
4) Bukit Doa Kelong, they have interesting amphitheater
5) Pagoda Ekayana
6) Bukit Kasih Kanonang, symbol of five religion
7) Danau Linow at Desa Lahendong, many people said it can change color due to alga and the sunlight, unfortunately I arrived in the evening so not much I can tell about the magic color. But the place itself was very sheen plus there's a small cafe perfect for tea/coffee. I would say this is Rock Bar ala Manado.
8) For your happy belly : Ria Rio Kalase (dinner), San Fransisco Restaurant (dinner), RM Danau Tondano (lunch), Tinoor Jaya at Desa Tinoor (dinner)
