Survey Saipan and enjoy 360-degree views from the island's highest point at Mt.Tapochao. You can either drive up the potholed, winding road in an off-road vehicle to reach the summit, or pack some supplies and embark on a hike to earn the views from the top. Once you reach the mountain's peak, you'll understand why the panoramic views here were so important for the island's defense during World War II. Take a photo of the iconic Jesus statue looking out over the island, then reward yourself with a snack and a cold drink from one of the local vendors at the summit. Using our custom trip planner, Saipan attractions like Mt.Tapochao can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
