Travel to Timor-Leste

East Timor travel

East Timor has miles of beautiful beaches, stylish colonial cities, rugged mountains, and coconut tree forests. Here, backpacking and hiking, bird, whale and dolphin watching, scuba diving and snorkeling are suggested activities.

Dili, the main point-of-entry and a good home base for travelers, is a city of churches, monuments and a most picturesque waterfront.

Due to the violence that took place during East Timor's struggle for independence, much of the infrastructure was destroyed. It is slowly being rebuilt thus electricity, telephones, roads and lodging are somewhat unreliable.

Travelers should exercise caution in public places including, but not limited to: clubs, restaurants, bars, schools, places of worship, outdoor recreational events, hotels, resorts, beaches and other locations frequented by foreigners.
