Tomohon is a hill resort located some 22 kilometers east of Manado, the capital city of North Sulawesi province.  Tomohon consists of 35 villages in five sub-districts, namely West, East, Central, South and North Tomohon.

Its land contour, cool weather and fertile soil encourage the local community to cultivate various kinds of flowers and vegetables. This city is known as a producer of flowers.  When in season,  the  flower gardens of the local inhabitants look very beautiful.

Annually the Tomohon Flower Festival is held here in  June and July. During this event, watch the flower floats parade through the town.  A flower tournament is also held during this Festival where participants from 94 cities in Indonesia take part at the Inspiration Hill.
