East Timor

The Portugal of Asia

Head to the most chilled out capital city on the planet when you visit East Timor.

With a sleepy small town feel, you’ll be right at home the moment you arrive on the shores of Dili. Its past Portuguese influences means that East Timor is one of the only places outside of Portugal where you can experience true Portuguese food and architecture. We think it’s pretty special that you can get a hit of European charm while kicking it in Asia. The best way to explore this charming destination is to hit the pavement and discover the nooks and crannies by foot. Plus with a stunning harbour, mountainous surrounds, long white sand beaches and water sports, East Timor is the perfect place to sit back, relax and let your worries float away.

Wake up at the crack of midday. Discover strange new worlds.
