Dili, East Timor - Travel Around The World | Top best places to visit in Dili
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:
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 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!

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.

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.
Liquica/Likisa, Timor Leste - a cozy old town 40 min from Dili | Ликиса, Восточный Тимор
I love Likisa. It's a perfect spot for weekend trips, boasting best beaches, nice historic places, great resorts (except Black Rock which is shit). And the road to Liquica after reconstruction is one of the best in Timor.
Discover Tiris Maunmera - spectacular waterfall near Laulara, Dare in Timor Leste.
I found this place by chance - just made a right turn from the main road to Aileu and went on straight until the last village where the road ends and where you should park the bike and walk down through the village along a narrow winding trail with breathtaking views. I took a local boy as a guide for 5$ and he was very helpful because the trail was quite difficult and sometimes confusing.
But it was worth the pain in my thighs. The waterfall is beautiful even though it wasn't rainy season and the river wasn't full. There was a group of young TImorese arrived from Dili that were a bit too noisy. I've made all this way not to listen to shitty music from shitty loudspeakers of their shitty phones accompanied by random bursts of yelling.
So my advice - go on week days.
Climbing Matebian 2316 m. (Matebean Mane), Baguia - second highest mountain in Timor Leste.
It's a sacred mountain for locals and very important for the whole nation because during the Indonesian occupation Timorese insurgents fighting against the Indonesian government were hiding in these mountains under the command of the current president of the country Taur Matan Ruak.
The tour guide was a scam. Charged me 40$ which is crazy for Timor, considering that I paid 15$ for climbing Ramelau, it is a low rainy season and the last tourists he saw were in October. Well this fucker doesn't deserve to have more tourists. And his English is at zero level.
On the way back the guide threw away an empty plastic water bottle straight in the grass. If this is such a sacred mountain, then have some respect. Disgusting. Don't use this guide.
The weather was very kind to me again and in the middle of the rainy season gave me a clear sunny day! This climb turned out to be much more difficult than I expected. On the way up I had 2 or 3 times of weakness when I wanted to turn back.
Oh! And there's sooo much mint growing on the slopes. The whole mountain literally smells minty and you breathe in this fantastic air.
This mountain is much farther from Dili than Ramelau, more hardly accessible with no proper accommodation nearby. They proposed me to stay in the village near Matebean, but the houses there have neither bathrooms nor toilets. Very basic conditions. I also didn't want to stay for the night there because local young guys showed me cut throat moves with their hands when they saw me arrive. Fuck those stupid villagers.
The best and only option remains in Baguia, where you have a chance to get a simple but cozy room at the church. Just go to church and ask for Mana Martina (works at the church) who alone does more for the tourism development than all the local communities, guides and authorities taken together. The most welcoming lady.
Top 10 Largest Cities or Towns of East Timor
Thanks for watching.....
East Timor, officially the Democratic Republic of Timor-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, within Indonesian West Timor. The country's size is about 15,410 km2 (5,400 sq mi).
East Timor was colonised by Portugal in the 16th century, and was known as Portuguese Timor until Portugal's decolonisation of the country. In late 1975, East Timor declared its independence but later that year was invaded and occupied by Indonesia and was declared Indonesia's 27th province the following year. In 1999, following the United Nations-sponsored act of self-determination, Indonesia relinquished control of the territory, and East Timor became the first new sovereign state of the 21st century on May 20, 2002. After independence, East Timor became a member of the United Nations and the Community of Portuguese Language Countries. It is one of only two predominantly Roman Catholic countries in Asia, the other being the Philippines.
East Timor has a lower-middle-income economy. About 37.4% of the country's population lives below the international poverty line – which means living on less than U.S. $1.25 per day – and about 50% of the population is illiterate. It continues to suffer the aftereffects of a decades-long struggle for independence against Indonesian occupation, which severely damaged the country's infrastructure and killed at least a hundred thousand people. The country is placed 134th on the Human Development Index (HDI). Nonetheless, East Timor is expected to have the sixth-largest percentage growth in GDP in the world for 2013.
Timor derives from timur, the word for east in Indonesian and Malay, which became Timor in Portuguese and entered English as Portuguese Timor. Leste is the Portuguese word for east, resulting in Timor-Leste (East-East). In Tetum the name is Timór Lorosa'e, from Lorosa'e (lit rising sun) the word for east in that language.
The official names under the Constitution are República Democrática de Timor-Leste in Portuguese and Repúblika Demokrátika Timor-Leste in Tetum.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) official short form in English and all other languages is Timor-Leste (codes: TLS & TL), which has been adopted by the United Nations, the European Union, and the national standards organisations of France (AFNOR), the United States (ANSI), United Kingdom (BSI), Germany (DIN), and Sweden (SIS) all diplomatic missions to the country by protocol and the CIA World Factbook
This East Timor
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.

Amazing motobike trip in Timor Leste: Mota Loes - Balibo Fort - Batugade - Indonesian border
Another great weekend around Timor Leste full of discoveries and great moments to remember. Although very tiny, Timor Leste has plenty of places to see at the weekend.
The 2 biggest problems for tourism development now are - lack of good transportation and crazy prices for accommodation. The hotel in Balibo fort, which is not even a 3***, offers rooms for 90-130$. For Asia it's absolutely unreasonable and that's why the hotel is empty all of the time. A local poorly looking guest house in Batugade was 25$ a night which is ridiculous as well. It doesn't help tourism development and it doesn't contribute to local communities.
