The Northern Mariana Islands are a U.S. commonwealth in the Pacific Ocean. Saipan, the largest island, is known for its sandy shores and mountainous landscapes. In clear waters off its west coast is the tiny, coral-fringed Mañagaha islet. On Saipan's northeast coast, turtles inhabit the Grotto, a cavern dive site. Nearby, memorials mark Banzai Cliff and Suicide Cliff, sites from WWII's Battle of Saipan.
The climate of the Northern Mariana Islands, U.S. territory in the Pacific Ocean, is tropical, hot and humid all year round, with a relatively cool and dry season from December to June, and a warmer and rainy season from July to November. However, the sunniest period is the least rainy.

Aipan hosts the vast majority of Northern Mariana Islands shopping opportunities. Shops are open seven days per week throughout the islands. Although these islands are known to be notoriously expensive, Garapan’s DFS Galleria Saipan contains a surprising number of bargains. Many of the designer clothing items, perfumes, and cosmetics sold at this duty-free center are cheaper than their equivalents sold in Japan or the mainland United States.
