Cruises from Bitung
Bitung is a small city on the NE tip of the tropical Indonesian island of Sulawesi, geographically situated mid-way between the islands of New Guinea and Borneo. It is a deepwater port for the provincial capital Manado that lies 45 km to the west. This is one of the friendliest ports you may ever visit, where locals of all ages just make you feel welcome, despite the city’s lack of tourism infrastructure. On disembarking you’ll be included in song, dance and photographs wherever you go.
Just walk into town and absorb the atmosphere of stalls, homes, local shops, churches, mosques, Chinese temple, tropical flowers and greenery.
