Dili— 8 nights
When East Timor declared itself independent from Indonesia in 2002, the small town of Dili took center stage as the nation's capital.Change things up with these side-trips from Dili: Mount Ramelau (in Ermera) and Old Ai Pelo Prison (in Liquica). There's much more to do: examine the collection at The Archives & Museum of East Timorese Resistance, visit Tais Market, get engrossed in the history at Chega! Exhibition, and get a sense of history and politics at Comarca Balide Prison.
