TIMOR LESTE


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

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.

⚡️ For a complete travel guide to Timor Leste?

What do you know about East Timor ( or Timor Leste as it is known over there)?

It is the newest country in the Southeast Asian bloc, gaining independence in 2002, and one of the least traveled country in Asia with only 60,000 travelers last year. To put that into perspective, Indonesia, its close neighbor had over 1.32 million arrivals last year.

Due to these facts, I decided to embark on a journey into this unknown land and traveled around the country for 10 days in July 2018. I got to see untouched nature unlike anything I have seen before, one of the smiliest people out there, and best of all, a country untouched by over-tourism. During my trip, I also saw poverty, unmaintained infrastructure, and a fire incident in the city. The trip was one hell of a rollercoaster ride that pushes me to the limit, to say the least. There is a long way to go for Timor Leste to become a prominent destination for travelers, but there is also an untapped potential that awaits those who seek real adventurers. If you are looking for a real adventure, you will surely find it here.

I hope you enjoy this video and I hope I was able to convey the beauty, and the life of the people in Timor Leste through this 3 minutes video.

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!

Top-Rated Attractions & Places to Visit in Timor-Leste ❤️ | Curiosity Juice | Country Tour #51

You will definitely would wish to travel to Timor-Leste after watching this video. Timor-Leste offers a rich cultural heritage spun from tens of thousands of years of human habitation, the Portuguese and Indonesian colonial periods, and from the depths of a society which has cultural traditions as the fabric of that bonds society together.

Carnival de Timor is the annual festival held in Dili in middle of April (sometimes in May, depending on rain season). Initiated by the Ministry of Tourism in 2010, Carnival de Timor is all about fun, music and multiculturalism. Both modern and traditional costumes, East Timorese and foreign minorities, even embassies also participate in this annual festival. The parade start in a landmark and end in Palacio do Governo, greeted by bands and award for best dressed group. The crowd continued to dance into the night with live music and other carnival attractions.

Timor-Leste offers a rich cultural heritage spun from tens of thousands of years of human habitation, the Portuguese and Indonesian colonial periods, and from the depths of a society which has cultural traditions as the fabric of that bonds society together.

Timor-Leste is well positioned for community-based ecotourism, which has been written into the nation’s tourism strategic plan. The Nino Konis National Park (situated in the eastern part of the country) is a well protected area and considered as some of the last surviving zones of tropical lowland rainforest in the world with rich coastal environment. The national park accommodates bird-watching, diving, trekking and pre-historic archeological sites.

Atauro Island and Jaco Island in Tutuala attract divers, snorkelers and green tourism enthusiasts. Both destinations provide eco-lodge facilities with some support from local NGOs in the region. A must-see attraction is the local divers and fishermen in Atauro, who fish using only traditionally made goggles and spear guns. Atauro is also well known for its distinctive wooden sculptures and is an excellent place to buy variety handicrafts.

For more adventurous tourists, Timor-Leste offers what is simply world class trekking, which can be experienced near places such as Mount Ramelau (± 3000 above sea level), Ainaro, Mt. Matebian (Baucau) and Mt. Kablaki (in Same district), to name a few.

While trekking Timor-Leste, you can keep busy by looking for some of the 260 species of birds on offer (the entire continent of Australia has some 650 resident species), 32 of which are endemic and 8 of which are exclusive to the island of Timor and found nowhere else in the world.

Coffee had been the main export commodity for East Timor since the colonial period. To visit East Timor is to taste its coffee grown in several regions such as Ermera, Maubisse, Manufahi and Liquisa. Travel to the coffee plantations takes you through winding mountainous roads, until over 1,000m above sea level altitude, cool climate (as low as 15C), and greeted by smiling farmers who are more than willing to welcome you to their homes. Other alternative is to contact one of the organizations dealing with coffee for a field visit to their cooperative farmer member's coffee plantation. They are: CCT/NCBA, ELSAA Cafe, Timor Global, Timor Corp, Peace Winds, PARC-IC and Alter Trade Timor.

Timor's coffee is now well known across the world and amongst organic coffee drinkers. It is now even sold in Starbucks Seattle as 'Arabia Timor' brand. Several organizations are promoting East Timorese coffee as Fair Trade Coffee in U.S., Japan and South Korea. One Japanese coffee expert praised Timor's coffee as, 'one of the remaining original species in the world today.'


Timor-Leste also produces various types of woven textiles and products for export and unique souvenir. High end and expensive tais ( Timor-Leste traditional hand-woven textile) are made from nature-produced colors, while more economical textiles use chemical dye. 13 districts in the nation produce distinct design and colors to another. Tais markets are available in Dili; however, for antique collections, one must visit the districts.

Jaco/Jako Island in Timor Leste - snorkelling in uninhabited paradise.

So this was the long awaited end of my Motorbike South Coast Tour. A great reward for this crazy exhausting but unforgettable trip. The island is tiny and cute but the road from Tutuala to the beach with boats is the worst in Timor. Only 4WD cars can pass. My motorbike withstood the challenge and took me up and down that ugly trail.
I am not the biggest fan of desert islands because they are all the same and I've seen quite a few of them. I find them all quite boring for a long stay because there is nothing to do but swim and fish. I tried to hike across Jaco but there are no trails and I quickly got lost and panicked which forced me to turn back. I snorkelled for about 2 hours and went back to Tutuala.
While the island is nice it not any different from many thousands of islands around Asia in Thai, Cambo, Viet which are in addition much more easily accessible.
So I would say it's not worth a special visit but if you find yourself somewhere in Lautem district you can give it a try.
Oh, and the prices are disgusting for transport and accommodation. The boat commute to the island is 10$ and it's like 700m. It's more expensive than to Atauro. Locals are obviously corrupted by the few tourists that come here and became greedy. Very simple and basic bungalos at the beach with toilet outside are like 20$ which is ridiculous cause it's not even on Jaco. In Cambodia I stayed in a bungalo on an paradisiac island for 5$ a night with a shower and toilet INSIDE.
I ended up staying in Pousada de Tutuala for 15$ a night for a tiny room with a floor bed no furniture. Other rooms were also super expensive considering their more than average comfort.
With the current situation I don't see any perspectives for Timorese tourism industry to win the competition for customers with other destinations like Bali, Thai and Cambo. The service is not worth the money locals ask here and you always feel a bit disappointed.
I for one have no intention to visit Jaco again. I saw it once, got mostly disappointed and will never come back.
My advice: if you have about 2-4 weeks of vacation and are entertaining different options - look closely at Thailand or Cambodia, they're as exotic and lovely as Timor, have got fantastic diving spots, but are cheaper with better service.
p.s. Timorese Ministry of Tourism must resign. They are a bunch of lazy old farts.
