  • The site is very simple, several tents that offer thais of various regions of East Timor, the various prices and qualities, in addition to some other types of crafts of Timor. It takes time to be able to choose easy, because the offer is great. The location is in the open, so go in with less Sun is nicer because of the heat. It's worth a look and open thais folded and stacked. You will find details of colors and amazing desnhos. Sellers know explain the details of the designs and backgrounds, if questioned. Haggling is part of the business.

  • A bit mind boggling array of Tais. The must have souvenir from Timor. Everything is hand made. Lots of other handicrafts on sale. Don't forget to bargain for a good price.  more »
  • Tice (textile) products in Timor-Leste in the 10 or so are gathered in one place. Do not know the market is selling various Tice has struggled. This is the impression impression as to half of the asking price. Insufficiently homogeneous compared with Tice was only in the hotel and is a somewhat shoddy products of undeniable. Will (may have gone to the back of the store).
