Sightseeing Adventure Museums
When East Timor declared itself independent from Indonesia in 2002, the small town of Dili took center stage as the nation's capital. The city has seen rising development since the independence struggle, but retains a laid-back charm, as well as a strong Portuguese influence from its centuries as a Portuguese colony. A vacation in Dili provides a good base for exploring the surrounding beaches and the rest of the country, especially thanks to its proximity to the airport. Many ex-pats have found their home in Dili, a town teeming with bars and restaurants that serve drinks and dishes from all over the world. Use our East Timor vacation trip planner to plan your trip to Dili and other destinations in East Timor.
