    Favorite thing: If you are traveling with your own laptop, WiFi is always gaining popularity. Many hotels and cafes offer WiFi in Dili. A popular spot on the weekend is the Esplanade Cafe (near the Japanese Embassy).

    However if you are traveling without a laptop, internet cafe options are more limited and a lot more costly.

    Tiger Fuel (on Comoro Ave) offers 24-hr cafe, but is pricey at $6

    "Internet" cafe next to Eastern Burger costs $2 for 30 minutes but the connection is sometimes faulty.

    In my opinion the best speed and price is in the Xanana Reading Room. They offer $0.05/minute ($3/hour). The room is air conditioned, quiet and the connection is fast.
    Xanana is open Monday ~ Saturday : 10am ~ 10pm
    Rua Belarmino Lobo

    Dili harbour

    Favorite thing: The harbour was sadly empty before the referendum - it seemed the whole nation was holding its breath. This was weeks before the Indonesian army slashed and burned so much of the country as they made there way out of decades of occupation.

    POST office!

    Favorite thing: Yes, Timor Leste has its own Post office in Dili, but there is still limited delivery of the items arriving. People/ org. can collect their post and operate PO boxes.
    But will your post ever arrive in Timor???
    The traffic goes "via Darwin, N.T. Australia", so it is best to ADD the description of the above route at the bottom of the address. No extra cost and it is reliable!
    And be patient...

    Favorite thing: Dili is such a small city, and yet it is the capital of this desolate country. This is where most discoveries start, and it is immediately off the beaten path, as few are those who travel here.
