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:
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!

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.

Marobo hot springs in Bobonaro district - land of fabulous landscapes in Timor Leste

I made this 2 days trip to Morobo hot springs by motobike at Easter 2016. I greatly enjoyed the road across this spectacular mountainous region - one of the most beautiful in East Timor. Heading out of Dili at around 8 am I passed by Batugade, Balibo and Maliana and I was held up by holiday ceremonial processions in different villages, hence I arrived to Morobo around 16:00 which was quite late so I had to stop for the night at a guest house in Batugade which was OK but too expensive to my concern - 30$ a night incl. breakfast (which I swapped for dinner)
On my way back I enjoyed very refreshing morning bathing in the sea and an amazing breakfast at the Maubara Fort restaurant.
The biggest issue of this trip is the road condition which worsens significantly after Maliana. 4wd is highly recommended although I met an Indonesian family in Morobo that arrived by minivan.

Timor-Leste: developing tourism in a new country

This video overviews Timor-Leste, a half-island nation between Indonesia and Australia, and its fledgling tourism development.

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.

East Timor

Spent a couple of weeks in Asia's newest country, East Timor, and road tripped to the furthest southeast point in Asia. Sleeping in hammocks on the beach across from Jaco Island and hitchhiking in the back of an open pickup for hours during a monsoon are just a couple of memorable moments from this journey.
