There was so many experience that i've got from there.

You can find many green spots, wonderfull view on sea, the great art (in singing together as we called "Masamper" and dance too).
"Masamper" is a culture in Sangihe that used in festival, ceremony, wedding, etc that doing by many people that sing with one to other and another.
They sing reciprocal song.

For info, you can find many talented singer in this island.
Hmmm, there so many great site to visit.
I hope i can visit it again.

Just info:
I went there with Ship that we can find on Manado's Harbour.
I went with KM Teratai (Ship) & back to Manado with KM Ratu Maria.
The duration is 8-9 hours for "night ship" (include bag shipping, etc)

If you want challenge and new experience travel with sea you can use Ferry or Speedboat to go Island (transport on morning until afternoon).


So, i just can say:
"Amazing Sangihe"

LOCAL TRANSPORTATION

Local transportation is provided primarily by "Oplet/Mikrolet". These kinds of vehicles are used to provide city transportation for 7-14 passengers.

TAXY
Taxis are available in most municipalities. Always ask the driver to use the meter. Taxis are reasonable and can be a good alternative to the crowded Mikrolets of the city.

BENDI
The Bendi is the traditional cart pulled by a horse, and can seat up to four passengers. This is a definite must for first time adventuresome travelers. The inexpensive fare depends on the distance traveled.
