Manado is in Indonesia, the most populous moslem country in the world, but Christian is the largest population in Manado and its province,North Sulawesi.When you want to go for holiday of visiting your relatives in Manado, beware that moslem holidays are not the holiday season here.Booking your flights or hotels in Manado should be done ahead of time when your travel time will be on CHRISTMAS, NEW YEAR, AND EASTER.All the Manadonese who work abroad or other cities will go home on those times when they are able to do so.Plane tickets could be extremely expensive and you may not even get your seats on those holiday seasons.JULY-AUGUST will be THE HARVEST FESTIVALS (PENGUCAPAN, for local people) in most of the villages in South Minahasa.You may expect slightly increment of bookings.The end of MAY to the first weeks of JULY will be one month `the end of school year` holiday for all the schools and universities here.Significant rise may happen during that period.Anyway, Christmas-New Year time will be the wettest time with the frequent rains and July-August will be the hottest time of the year.

So,be wise on setting or booking tickets and hotels on your traveling time to manado.You may save some of your budget.
