The port of Bitung has a large and modern wharf 1,127 m long, located on the northern coast is undoubtedly the most important port, serving shipping lines in North Sulawesi as well as the eastern part of Indonesia.

Travel to and from North Sulawesi, by road, is an adventure. Long distance busses to Gorontalo, Palu, Poso (Central Sulawesi) and Ujung Pandang (South Sulawesi) are available. Trips to South Sulawesi may take several days.


LOCAL TRANSPORTATION

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

TAXI
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.
