Fire Knife Dance at night

by gagarcia

Try to watch a fire knife dance . It a local Chamorro dance where men spin a stick with fire on both ends. Here is the catch aside from the fire there is actually a knife on both ends so the dancers has to be fire careful he will not only burn but get cut also. This shot was taken at Saipan Grand Hotel were the show is free.

Saipan Dream

by city_guy

"The beach....the sky......the sea....."

Saipan is the principal island of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. A chain of 15 tropical islands, the U.S. Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands (CNMI) is the newest member of the American political family and the closest American flag associated area to Asia.
 
The Marianas are comprised of fifteen volcanic islands that run in a generally north-south direction from 20o32'N 144o54'E to 13o15'N 144o43'E.
 
Saipan is located about 1,200 miles from Tokyo, 1,500 mile from Manila, and over 3,200 miles from Pearl Harbor. The island has two main seasons, a dry season from November to March, and a wet season from April to October. During the dry season the winds are usually from the north and east and by August the winds have changed direction and are from the southwest. Cloud cover is abnormally high with the island being obscure roughly 70% of the time. The climate is generally mild with the yearly temperature ranging from 72o F to 85o F.
 
During the wet season, August being the wettest month, showers may last for only a few minutes to over 2 hours. During the wet season around 85 inches of precipitation usually falls on the island.

"My time at the beach"

What? The hair? Yeah, just a reminder that this was back in 1991 when we were young :)
 
Staying at the Saipan Grand Hotel, this was taken at the hotel's beach. Notice the WW2 tank in the left portion of the picture.

Travel Tips for Saipan

Bird Island

by kenmerk

Bird Island is a rocky islet just off the north east coast of Saipan, which serves as a wildlife sanctuary for birds. (Hence the name) There is a scenic lookout just south of the island, or alternately a hiking trail that leads down to the beach. From the beach you can wade out to the island, if you so desire...

Saipan Revealed

by Seasmoke

Having lived in Korea for almost 10 years now, Saipan has been my favorite island getaway. I've been to most famous beaches in the States and Southeast Asia, but for me, nothing compares to Micronesia.

"KingfisherGolfcourse"

...yeah, its a beaut of a golf course. If I played golf, this would be the place for it....a very splendid one with many great sights to distract you!
The 'retaining-pond' on the left there is made out of the CoalRock that they have all over this Island---and the 'ponds' mirror' all the tidal pools that one sees at LowTide.
And on the bottom right is a 'crack', gulch, canyon; where the ocean water rushes in at HighTide. Very cool to watch all that water 'guggle' and splash around in there while the 'reflecting/infinate-pond' sits in Tranquility.
The bit-of-white-splash you see there on the blackCoralRock is bigger than you might think... We are 'at least' 80 feet UP on that golf course!
The island in the background is Tinian. And the ocean was a rich, saturated 'cobalt-blue' the day we were there. Heaven...

"Here'sAnAnimalOfAdifferentNature..."

The islands Optomologist, and photographer extraordinare(!), putting sunglasses on the "old-man-of-the-sea"; stating, 'after hundreds of years, the old-guy can finally reduce the glare from the sea and SEE'!!
{humor is also a trait of Dr. Mark!}

"CaughtInTheVine-of-The-Jungle-Web..."

...this is what I remember most about Saipan----lots of Jungle and lots of tough vines to get through. I don't know how the Marines did it when they were here, but, I can say this, the way was tough going and they sure were a hardy crew!

"LookingUpAndOutAjapaneseBunkerOnMArineBeach..."

...my Dad was here during that time, and it was strange to be following in his footsteps. I wonder just how close he really got to what went on here.

"Here's the view from on top...."

...looking out over MArine Beach; could you visualize 500 ships out there; 200 planes flying all over the island; and 3000 of your comrades failing to make it back in just two days??
Hard for me to imagine and I'm standing right there!

"CommonFairyTern"

...love watching these guys swoop and glide in the sky above us. They dive pretty good too----and chase each other...
AND, soooooooo nice to see these "Peace" birds flying instead of all those war-time planes of yor....

"No'Check-In'Required!!:-)"

....15 hours by commercial flight to get here from Seattle. Incredible--longest flight for me yet. But once here, well worth the trip as I meet up with friends of 26 years and we check-out all the cool beaches around this Island....

"TheEndToAperfectlyFineDay...."

....can't find a better way to end the day here than to watch the sky filll with color reflecting off the lagoon and feeling the coolness in the air return. There is a ship out there on the horizon so that we have a bit of scale to the photo.
WithThat, I hope y'all enjoyed this SaipanDazePage:-)))
