Saipan La Fiesta Mall ruins

We took a weekend trip to Saipan for the weekend, mostly to do some bird watching and exploring. Turns out that Saipan is a HOTBED for abandoned places to explore, both military and civil. This is the first of 3 posts, with lots of photos behind the cut.

La Fiesta Mall was the largest mall in the Marianas while it was in use between 1992 and 2004. Japan Airways pulled out of Saipan and tourism never recovered. The site was abandoned and has not found any new investment.

Certainly one of the coolest and extensive ruins I've been able to explore!
