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.Get out of town with these interesting Dili side-trips: Mount Ramelau (in Ermera) and Old Ai Pelo Prison (in Liquica). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at The Archives & Museum of East Timorese Resistance, get engrossed in the history at Chega! Exhibition, pause for some serene contemplation at Immaculate Conception Cathedral, and visit Tais Market.
