10 days itinerary for timor leste
Comment / 09/25/2018 share timor leste is probably one of the least traveled country in southeast asia getting only around 60,000 travelers per year.
The majority of those travelers are on a visa run from indonesia, and they often stay just in dili which is a shame as the country shines on its own when you started to go out of the capital city.

The country lacks tourism infrastructure hence allowing us adventurers to explore the country as it is meant to be, through the ways the locals do.
You are also rewarded with stunning nature from the marine life of the underwater world around atauro island to the quiet mountain region of maubisse, all of which are untouched by mass tourism, which is not easy to come by in southeast asia.
If you are looking for a real adventure, this is the place to be.

Dili is a seaside city with a nice chill vibe, relatively great infrastructure, and makes for a good base to launch yourself into the countryside.
The beautiful cristo rei statue, located only a few kilometers away from the city center is a great place to go for a small hike especially at sunset.
The beach behind cristo rei statue is also worth visiting with beautiful clear water, remote location, and tucked away from the main road, there is no better place to swim in the ocean than here.
