Top best places to visit in Dili, East Timor
Dili lies on the northern coast of Timor Island, the easternmost of the Lesser Sunda Islands.

Dili is the largest city, chief port and commercial center of East Timor and also is the newest Asian capital.

Although there are not many tourist attractions in town but there are some interesting buildings like:
The Government Palace,

The Presidential Palace,

And the headquarter of the Ministry of Defense.

The most characteristic landmark is the Statue of Jesus that is constructed on a headland to the east of town.
The statue is about 27m tall and stands on a globe of earth and the view from across the bay is spectacular.
Of similar type but less famous is the Statue of John Paul II, located on the western side of the city.

Among the few places of worship, two are note worthy:
Motael Church
And An Nur Mosque.

East Timor is a developing country. It’s not cheap and there is much to be done.
Dili is a safe, charming, lazy little coastal city surrounded by wild nature.
And like in every other seaside city it has:
Several Nice Beaches;
Parks and Monuments;
A Small Port;
A Lighthouse;
A Promenade, a popular hangout for the young;
And the National Stadium.

In Dili you can find fresh fruits, vegetables and fish.

But most of all a lot of nice people!

Daily life in Dili, Capital of Timor-Leste

Dili, the capital of East Timor with about 200,000 inhabitants lies on the northern coast of Timor island, the easternmost of the Lesser Sunda Islands.

After a dark history the town is full of young people looking to the future with hope and expectation.

A Tourist's Guide to Dili, East Timor/Timor Leste

How to spend 24-hours in Dili, capital of one of the newest countries in the world.

After a short hop aboard Nam Air from Bali, I land in sleepy Dili. The Hotel Timor is a good base to explore the city on foot, where I see the Presidential Palace, the Santa Cruz Massacre Memorial, the port area and a church. I see lots of great statues along the way, too.

Then I catch a taxi to the Christ monument, and make it to the top to admire the view. After a brief stop by Dili Lighthouse, I end my day in Timor Plaza, where I enjoy a cooling beer in a rooftop restaurant.

TIMOR-LESTE PT.2 (MT. RAMELAU) - The Way Overland - Episode 13

After what felt like months, our car has finally arrived from Australia! With the car being buried under a pile of other containers, we had to push the guys at the port along a bit to get it out that day. It was such a relief opening the doors and seeing our car/home there in one piece!

We made a last minute decision before we left Australia to get some fly screens made up for the rear doors, as the ones that Jolie had attempted to make were absolute rubbish. They arrived in the post the day after we flew out, so a courier dropped them to the shipping agent to get them in the container with the car. The morning after we get the car back Mark installs them, taking only 20 minutes. So far they seem like a really well made product, so we’ll test them out over the next week or so and give you a run down on how they go! If you’re looking for fly screens for your car, Doug from “Top Gear 2 Go” is your man. He was quick to get them made up and posted out to us and makes products for lots of different cars.

Check our his website

With the new fly screen installed, we couldn’t get out of Dili fast enough. First stop is Mt Ramelau, Timor-Leste’s highest peak at 2986m. The 85km drive to Hato Builico, the town where you begin the climb, took us a good 2 1/2 hours as the roads are in terrible shape. The reasonably dramatic climb out of Dili not only offers some pretty special views it also gives a welcome relief to the very humid coastal weather. When we reached Hatu Builico, we continued driving up a steel and loose rock 4wd track up to the campground a bit further up the mountain.

We set our alarms to 3am and made the hike up to the summit to watch the sunrise. We couldn’t of picked a more perfect morning to come up here as it was so clear. At the summit it was absolutely freezing. The temperature was only about 5 degrees, though the wind went straight to your bones! For the rest of the day Jolie had a bright red face from wind burn. Nevertheless, being here for sunrise is an amazing experience as the views are magical.

Hope you enjoyed the video! Next week we’re doing a lap of the south coast of Timor-Leste then driving north again to Baucau where we’ll pick up our friend that we met on Atauro Island, then drive to the most eastern point of the island, Tutuala Beach, which has a lovely coral garden and some of the clearest water I’ve seen.

WORLD by DRONE (Amazing Drone shootings)







East Timor was colonised by Portugal in the 16th century, and was known as Portuguese Timor until 28 November 1975, when the Revolutionary Front for an Independent East Timor (Fretilin) declared the territory's independence. Nine days later, it was invaded and occupied by the Indonesian military, and was declared as the country's 27th province the following year. The Indonesian occupation of East Timor was characterised by a highly violent, decades-long conflict between separatist groups (especially Fretilin) and the Indonesian military. East Timor - Officially the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste (Portuguese: República Democrática de Timor-Leste,Tetum: Repúblika Demokrátika Timór-Leste), is a country in Southeast Asia. It comprises the eastern half of the island of Timor, the nearby islands of Atauro and Jaco, and Oecusse, an exclave on the northwestern side of the island surrounded by Indonesian West Timor. Australia is the country's southern neighbour, separated by the Timor Sea. The country's size is about 15,007 km2 (5,794 sq mi)
Indonesian occupation (1975–1999) Indonesia's occupation of East Timor was marked by violence and brutality. A detailed statistical report prepared for the Commission for Reception, Truth and Reconciliation in East Timor cited a minimum bound of 102,800 conflict-related deaths in the period 1974–1999, namely, approximately 18,600 killings and 84,200 excess deaths from hunger and illness, with an estimated figure based on Portuguese, Indonesian and Catholic Church data of approximately 200,000 deaths. The East Timorese guerrilla force (Forças Armadas da Libertação Nacional de Timor-Leste, Falintil) fought a campaign against the Indonesian forces from 1975 to 1998. José Ramos-Horta, 1996 Nobel Peace Prize winner, second President of East Timor The 1991 Dili Massacre was a turning point for the independence cause and an East Timor solidarity movement grew in Portugal, the Philippines, Australia, and other Western countries. Following the resignation of Indonesian President Suharto, a UN-sponsored agreement between Indonesia and Portugal allowed for a UN-supervised popular referendum in August 1999. A clear vote for independence was met with a punitive campaign of violence by East Timorese pro-integration

East Timor Travel | Is Independence Always a Good Thing?

This video is about East Timor Travel, Is Independence Always a Good Thing?

Indonesia in the past was very bad with how they treated East Timor. But now Indonesia tends to be pretty hands off - letting places and governments run how they want (like Bali). I made many friends in East Timor and they were so wonderful and nice. I just felt bad that they all lived in such poor homes and wondered if East Timor had stayed apart of Indonesia - would they have had a better life.

The point of my channel is to show you the other side and get you to see the big picture. There will be times you will agree and other times you disagree. But we can always agree that there is always an other side.
