Dili

— 1 night
When East Timor declared itself independent from Indonesia in 2002, the small town of Dili took center stage as the nation's capital.
On the 18th (Tue), get a taste of the local shopping with Tais Market, examine the collection at The Archives & Museum of East Timorese Resistance, and then explore the different monuments and memorials at Cemetery of Santa Cruz. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: get your bearings at Xanana GusmAo Reading Room, appreciate the history behind Cristo Rei, then soothe aching muscles at The Spa, and finally see some colorful creatures with Aquatica Dive Resort.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major aiport is Presidente Nicolau Lobato International Airport. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.

Rugged beaches lure many to take their holiday in East Timor, a former Portuguese colony that gained its independence in 2002 after a brutal occupation by Indonesia. With pristine reefs, steep mountains, mysterious jungle caves, and misty hillside villages, the country represents one of Asia's most charming destinations, where it's still possible to have an off-the-beaten-track adventure. Many choose to tour East Timor by car, stopping at various locations to snap photos, dive into the sea, and mingle with the locals at quaint settlements preserving age-old traditions lost to the rest of the world. Those preferring urban experiences concentrate on Dili, the ultra-relaxed capital with access to both sea and mountains.
