Useful information on Northern Mariana Islands
General: The Marianas islands are the northern part of the Micronesia island group. Today, the Marianas Islands are composed of two U.S. jurisdictions: the territory of Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), is in the Pacific Ocean occupying a strategic region of the western Pacific Ocean. The islands (also called Northern Marianas) were captured by United States forces in 1944, and after World War II they became part of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands. In 1977, the Northern Marianas voted to become a United States commonwealth; the change took place in 1986. The Northern Marianas are self-governing, under the sovereignty of the United States. They have an elected governor and two-house legislature. Residents are United States citizens. The commonwealth consists of 16 volcanic islands about three-quarters of the way from Hawaii to the Philippines, forming part of Micronesia, and it includes all of the Mariana Islands except Guam. Southwest of the islands, in the Mariana Trench, is the greatest known oceanic depth - 10,915 metres. The Northern Marians has a population of 80,362 (2005 estimate). Most of the people are Micronesians. Tourism is the leading source of income. More than 90% of the population lives on the island of Saipan. Of the fifteen other islands, only two, Tinian and Rota, have a significant population. Saipan, Tinian, and Rota are the largest islands. The islands of Agrihan and Alamagan have fewer than ten residents each, and the remaining islands are unpopulated. The Commonwealth's centre of government is in the village of Capital Hill on Saipan. As the island is governed as a single municipality, most publications name Saipan as the Commonwealth's capital. International telephone country code: +670, Internet country code: .mp, Electricity voltage: 120V frequency 60 Hz, Electrical outlet: type A North American/Japanese 2-blade, Time zones: GMT +11, No daylight saving time in 2011
Language: English is the official language but many people speak Malayo-Polynesian languages.
Climate: The islands have a tropical marine climate moderated by seasonal northeast trade winds. There is little seasonal temperature variation. The dry season runs from December to June, and the rainy season from July to November and can include typhoons. The Guinness Book of World Records has cited Saipan as having the most equable temperature in the world.
Major islands: Saipan, Titian and Rota.
Tinian historic site: One of the most significant historical events of the 20th Century was initiated from the Island of Tinian at North Field in the Atomic Bomb Pit. It is the site where the atomic bomb underwent final assembly and were then loaded onto the B-29 bombers that carried them to Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Travellers from Asia have the best air access to the Northern Marianas. There are direct flights between Saipan and Tokyo, Osaka, Korea and the Philippines. Travellers from North America will have to connect in Guam. Travellers from Europe will connect at one of the Asian gateways.
Ports and harbours:
- Port of Saipan
- Port of Tinian
- Rota West Harbour
Local transport: A car is the best way to get around Saipan, which has a good road system and light traffic. A car is also the best way to get around Tinian or Rota, though roads are far less extensive than on Saipan. There are rental agencies at the airport and in a few of the larger hotels. Shuttle buses travel between major towns and hotels, but there are no scheduled passenger services. Travelling between islands means flying, and Saipan is the hub. There are several daily flights between Saipan and Tinian and between Rota and Saipan or Guam. A ferry sails from Saipan's Charlie Dock to Tinian, and back.
Taxis: Taxis are metered and privately owned, but very expensive. They are clearly marked and easy to find at the airport and at the larger hotels.
Currency: The official currency is the US Dollar (USD). The approximate exchange rate on 12th June 2011 was: 1 Euro = US$ 1.435, 1 GB£ = US$ 1.623
Currency restrictions: There are no restrictions on the import and export of local and foreign currency. Amounts exceeding US$10,000, however, must be declared.
Money: The US dollar is the official currency in the Northern Marianas (as it is throughout Micronesia) and is the only practical currency to carry. Except in the most remote islands, US dollar traveller's cheques are accepted everywhere. There are commercial banks on Saipan, Rota and Tinian. Major credit cards (especially MasterCard and Visa) are accepted at most hotels, large restaurants, car rental agencies and dive shops on Saipan, and at car rental agencies on Rota.
Casinos: Northern Marianas casino gambling activity is a small but growing sector of the economy that is mainly reliant on tourism. Currently there is only one casino located on the island of Tinian, in the Tinian Dynasty hotel and casino complex. The Tinian Dynasty Hotel and Casino offers 4 restaurants, 3 bars and a nightclub. The visitors are mostly from Japan and from the USA and China. There are plans for more casinos on Tinian, Saipan and Rota.
