      Booking Guesthouses before arriving

      East Timor Nov 29, 2015 at 8:09 PM

      Has anyone had any luck making bookings outside Dili at guesthouses? For example, we need to stay at one in Manatuto as the main highlight of our trip ( & inability to travel far from Dili). Have contacted tourist info & they insist you can phone them from OS. Unfortunately have only read of the problems in doing this. Do you think a travel agent in Dili with Email might do this for us? Thanks

      East Timor Nov 15, 2015 at 6:50 AM

      Is it possible to cross the Indonesian - Timor Leste overland border for EU citizens (exluding the exceptions)? According to the new agreement it should be possible, but the question is if its working in practice? There is not much information. Cheers Adam

    • Solo women cycling ET

      East Timor May 8, 2015 at 3:22 AM

      I might fly to East Timor in July to do a cyclo-tour for about 3 weeks and from there cross overland to Indonesia. I wonder is it safe for alone women to cycle around. I have been cycling for 4 years and have big experience how to stay safe on the road. I am cycling only during the day, take bigger roads, ask people to pitch tent in their gardens or fields, try to don't look attractive and so on. But I would like to hear opinion from some local people.

      Thank you in advance.

      We will be travelling to Dili for 3 weeks with our 15 month old toddler. Is it possible to buy disposable nappies in Dili or should we bring enough for our stay? Which is the best hotel with a pool for us? Should we bring a car seat and a portable cot? Are there ATMs in town where we can withdraw money on mastercard or visa?

      Thanks in advance

      Is Dili safe?

      East Timor Sep 28, 2007 at 7:58 AM

      Hi there,
      I plan to go to Dili next year, but I have several question to ask.

      1. Is Dili safe, especially for Indonesian? You know, in the past East Timor was part of Indonesia, and some incidents happened which (maybe) made some people hate to Indonesian.
      2. Do I need visa to enter East Timor? If do, how to get that and how much?
      3. What is East Timor currency now?
      4. Is there any bus to Atambua (East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia). I plan to enter Dili from Darwin, and exit by land to Atambua, since I want to visit a friend who live there.
      5. Do you have any accomodation to recommend?

      I look forward for a reply. Thank you in advance!
