When East Timor declared itself independent from Indonesia in 2002, the small town of Dili took center stage as the nation's capital.
Visiting Dolphin & Whale Watching and Tasitolu will get you outdoors. Head to Arte Moris and Xanana Gusmao Reading Roomfor plenty of shopping. Step out of Dili with an excursion to Old Ai Pelo Prison in Liquica--about 48 minutes away. There's much more to do: examine the collection at The Archives & Museum of East Timorese Resistance, explore the different monuments and memorials at Cemetery of Santa Cruz, appreciate the history behind Cristo Rei, and look for gifts at Alola Foundation Center & Shop.
