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.

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.

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.

What is DJIBOUTI?

Have you ever heard of the country called DJIBOUTI? If not, don't feel embarrassed... because it's a very tiny country on the Horn of Africa that gets minimal tourism -- roughly 70,000 visitors per year.

Over the last 2 days, I have explore every facet of the capital & biggest city called Djibouti City. I find this place to be the most interesting country in Africa.

Here are some of my quick realizations:

- It's VERY EXPENSIVE -- I have spent more than $400 in the last 2 days and I haven't done much other than walk around, take a few taxis, eat 4 meals & sleep (keep in mind my visa was $90 and my hotel was $105).

- Walking around the streets feels very much like France, from the colonization period that started in 1884 and ended in 1977. The people here speak French (first), Arabic (second) and English (third, if any at all).

- There is a LOT OF SECURITY everywhere -- police/military guards standing on every corner (literally) with giant guns strapped to their backs. It is kind of crazy and very intimidating, but safe.

- About a quarter of Djibouti's population (~250,000 people) are living in extreme poverty, which is more extreme than you'd think given that this country is so expensive. A massive contrast between rich & poor.

All of my thoughts on this mysterious country, and more, are in this video. Have you ever been to Djibouti?

East Timor Travel And Tour Documentary In Urdu - History - Justuju Ka Safar

East Timor Travel And Tour Documentary In Urdu - History - Justuju Ka Safar

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.

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.
