Manokwari bay in the afternoon

In my previous article, I wrote about Manokwari bay early in the morning. Now I am writing about the bay which is called Dore or Dorey bay in the afternoon. Different from the morning time where the waters of the bay look peaceful and calm, the scenery of Dorey bay of Manokwari city in the afternoon looks busy.
Fishermen and seafarer were busy working with their canoes and wooden boats. In Anggrem area of Manokwari, traditional wooden boats were loading goods to be delivered to coastal villages along the Cendrawasih bay (Geelvinkbaai).
These wooden boats are another tourist attraction which travelers can see while visiting Manokwari city, the capital of West Papua province in the Republic of Indonesia.
Next to the busy wooden jetty, and wooden boats, Papuan were also busy feeding their pigs at the pigpens that had been constructed along the beach of Anggrem area. These pigpens were basic wooden platform above sea water. I just knew that there were pigpens there. As the travel writer of this blog, I am planning to promote Anggrem as another tourist attractions where we can see how the Papuan live and work to survive from the dynamic and rapidly growing economic activities of Manokwari city.
 Dorey bay is one of the most beautiful bays in the world. Here travelers can see and experience the beauty of Manokwari city, a tropical city with all of its dynamics. Some coral islands in the Dorey bay are perfect sites for scuba diving especially for the coral reefs and shipwrecks. At the south of the bay the blue Arfak mountain has become the natural habitat for bower bird, birds of paradise and hundreds of orchids while at the north of the bay, the Table Mountain with its hiking trails provide wonderful attractions for tourists who want to explore the caves and watch the bats as well as the goliath cockatoo and hornbills. If you are interested in visiting Manokwari city to see the beauty of the Dorey bay as a tourist and need a travel guide, please, do not hesitate to contact me Charles Roring
