A capital for centuries, an independent one for only years.

Dili is the capital of East Timor, a country that is still finding its feet after gaining independence from Indonesia in 2002. The city is a fascinating mix of cultures, with Portuguese colonial architecture sitting alongside traditional Timorese homes made from bamboo and thatch. The waterfront is a great place to people-watch, and the markets are a great place to buy souvenirs. There are also a few good restaurants in town, serving up both East Timorese and international cuisine. Dili is a great place to start a trip around East Timor, as it is the most developed and tourist-friendly city in the country.
