  • This is one of the best place in Dili. Very recommended if you're planning to get souvenirs or just traditional stuff in general. All the sellers are very friendly, and you can customize your order based on your preference. You can also rent some stuff for a show or performance from the market with a good deal.
  • 面倒な客引きがなくてゆっくり品物が見れます。 なかなかの品揃えですが英語はあまり通じません。
  • One of my fave places in Dili. Small but clean. I bought some tais clothes here. I wear the small ones for hijab and big one fpr bed cover. For new visitor: dont forget to bargain :)
  • I love the colours also the design. The place you have to visit to buy some souvenirs. Don't forget to bargain the price :P
