SAIPAN - - - - - Group of volcanic and limestone islands that lie in the Western Pacific - known as the Northern Mariana Islands, lie just east of the Philippines. There are 14 islands in the chain but only three main islands, Saipan, Tinian and Rota are inhabited. The Chamorros and Carolinians are the two main cultures in the islands. The islands are part of the American family therefore they are protected and hold commonwealth status under U.S. sovereignty...wikipedia.com

my Saipan list... (things i could remember from the place)

1. rent a car! the island is small... (riding a cab is pretty expensive)

2. they have these taxi drivers that the locals and pinoys use... what happens is that they call the cab guy.
. they tell the guy to take them to the place and the cab guy will just charge em a fixed amount of
$3.00.. (as compared to taxeeeessssss)

3. i went to costco and bought those fridays potato skin chips.. yumm

4. sunset time... watch the beautiful sunsetSSS a lot of SuNSETS

5. eat eat eat..

6. visit the ABC store for some mauna Loas (macadamia nuts)..my mom also liked some of the Marianas Blend sold at Duty Free!

7. cultural show at fiesta hoTeL

8. stay at PIC.. a lot of activities for kids.. but its far from Garapan square.its 10 minutes away from the "main part of the town"

10. of courseeeeeee.... i also went to Managaha..its a flat coral islet.. white powdery sand..different shades of blue water...

11. oohh i almost forgot the groto..hehe.. it has an under gound passage.. which only divers can take...this passage leads to the ocean ... plussss its a 300 or so steps down AND up.. the place.. brace your self.. (the steps are quite small too plus kinda slippery.)
