Motorbike Tour in Tagulandang. North Sulawesi

To get a quick idea of the tourist sites in Tagulandang, we recommend to join a day trip around the island on the first day. A paved road circumvents Tagulandang. The road is in good condition, but some parts of it are very steep. Only very expert drivers should try to drive the motorbike. It is better to rent a motorbike with a driver for one day (150.000 RP). Traffic in Tagulandang is light.
