Voice of Travelers to Saipan

Holiday rest in Saipan.

I am Steve, a graduate student at the University of Hong Kong. Last fall, I took a break from school work and decided to visit my childhood friend who had relocated to Saipan. I bought my ticket online after a referral from a family friend on where to get the cheapest ticket to Saipan. The cheapest ticket to Saipan was by Asian Airlines compared to ticket by other airlines.The airlines was a pet friendly and accepted vaccinated cats and dogs thus I bought a ticket for my cat Homley. As a student with a travel ticket, the airline allowed free check-in for the first and second bags and only charged for the third bag. Asian Airlines is not my regular travel airline but the travel experience with the airline to Saipan was generally awesome. I am planning to travel to Saipan again this summer for my friend birthday party before resuming studies and from the previous travel experience, I am certainly buying Asian Airlines to Saipan.

Birthday Celebration in Saipan

I am Jennifer from Liverpool. I celebrated my birthday in Saipan. Last year. I wanted an adventure on my birthday and started planning and timed for the cheapest ticket to Saipan. I searched online for the cheapest ticket weeks prior my departure to Saipan. Ticket to Saipan is cheaper six weeks before your travel time and it is advisable to purchase your ticket six weeks before traveling. On ticket comparison, cheapest ticket to Saipan was by British Airways, they were offering a 5% off their ticket for any ticket bought that month. Even though, the flight was short, their flights attendants were friendly and offered great travel experience that I guess was satisfying to everyone.
